National Broadcasters Hall of Fame member, Jack Bogut, has just released his fourth CD - an original Christmas story set in North central Montana.
The title is “Past Present Accounted For,” a tale about six young people who got caught up in some events that seemed accidental at the time, a little baffling after they thought about and discussed them, and profoundly generous when they finally understood what a gift they had been given. It would be a present that nobody asked for or expected. It would come to them in separate installments, none of which would make much sense until connected to the other parts. They would not be able to return it even if they wanted to. Five parts would arrive that night. The sixth and final part would come many years later, on another Christmas Eve.
This warm, funny, and poignant story is about the mystery and joy that exist in Christmas, even for non-believers.
Early reviewers said:
“It’s a truly wonderful story. My family and I will listen to it again and again.”
“There’s a piece of me, and perhaps everyone, in this story.”
“I drove quite a distance out of my way to finish listening to the story. The ending made me pull over...”
“A great, surprising, story that should be made into a movie.”
