The powerful, moving oratorio is a masterpiece of Baroque music and has become a staple of holiday choral performances around the world, and in our region, since it was first performed in 1742. Kentucky Public Radio’s Charles Compton brings us the story of why it’s become, and remained, a Christmastime favorite, on this week's Front Page Sunday from WKMS News.</p><p> Mon, 10 Dec 2012 17:15:28 +0000 Chad Lampe & Todd Hatton 25505 at http://wkms.org Front Page Sunday 12-9 Front Page Sunday 12/2 http://wkms.org/post/front-page-sunday-122 <p>The Kentucky Supreme Court could rule soon on the case of a high school student charged and convicted after admitting to his school principal and the resource officer that he shared prescription pain pills. &nbsp;The student says he wasn’t read his rights and that the confession shouldn’t have been used against him at trial. &nbsp;The court’s ruling could change the way school administrators handle discipline problems, and we’ll bring you the details.</p><p> Mon, 03 Dec 2012 17:31:30 +0000 Chad Lampe & Todd Hatton 25210 at http://wkms.org Front Page Sunday 12/2 Front Page Sunday 11-11 http://wkms.org/post/front-page-sunday-11-11 <p>At long last, the 2012 campaign season is over, and while the dust is still settling, we’ll speak with two retiring Kentucky state lawmakers, Republican Senator Ken Winters of Murray and Democratic Representative Mike Cherry of Princeton, to help sort out the results.
