Christmas Transistor Radio

“Rocking Around the Christmas Tree” rang out loud and proud through the ruby red gizmo I balanced in the palm of my hand for the first time that cold December day ….”

Tucked away in Small-Town, America, the turbulent years of the 60’s proved to be a magical time to grow up for author Donna Austgen Frisinger who, thanks to a first-time babysitting job,  earned the money to buy her mother the ground-breaking 1960’s transistor radio, no bigger than a deck of cards.

From the rock ‘n’ roll thrills of  “American Bandstand” to the hide-your-eyes chills of “Shock Theater,” complimented by the beautiful acrylics of award-winning illustrator Vicki Guess, what Donna learned that Christmas season changed her life forever, and is a story that will touch your heart to reflect upon your own childhood transitions when anything and everything seemed possible.
