To round out December 2014, West Virginia Public Broadcasting "took the show on the road" with creative and fun community events in several cities. Bob Thompson invited special guest Mollie O'Brien to join him for the 22nd annual performance of the holiday Joy To The World conference. O'Brien is a native of Wheeling, and that made the decision simple--JTTW would host performances in Wheeling, Charleston, and Beckley this year, three concerts in three days on December 11, 12, and 13.
