BOZEMAN - A new radio show called "Montana Radio Christmas 1944," takes an audience back in time, when Montanans were being challenged in a time of war.

According to the co-writer of this year's presentation, 1944 was a dynamic year in Montana. Doug McIntyre says Montana was dealing with rationing because of WWII, so license plates were made of wood, and trains were the way to travel. He says that’s why this story is set on the Milwaukee Road’s Olympian train,

Traveling Montana during the Christmas Season. This is a radio drama, but according to Heidi Krutchkoff who plays the main radio announcer, it's been designed to be a visual play as well. She says the script and the accompanying music make this the perfect performance to experience Montana during 1944.
