December 24 - "With Good Reason" Public Radio Program
WMRA, 90.7 FM
Most of the chestnuts roasting on open fires this winter are from Europe or Asia, not America. In the early 1900s, American chestnut trees from Maine to Georgia were largely wiped out by blight. Dr. Heather P. Griscom, associate professor of biology at JMU, is helping to restore American chestnut trees and joins “With Good Reason” for a sampling of holiday chestnut treats.
Later in the show, Inman Majors, associate professor of English at JMU, shares his favorite holiday music and memories.
