Today's Christmas Cafe warmed our hearts, as we welcomed a family into the studio -- The Kandt Family. (Or at least a few members of the Kandt Family). Beyond playing for us a beautiful version of 'Oh Holy Night' on Clarinets and Piano, Christian Kandt, and his daughter Charlotte and son Benjamin shared their thoughts on the true meaning of Christmas, and especially for Christian, the reason why he experiences so much joy this season.
