January 04, 2014|By Arthur Hirsch, The Baltimore Sun

National Public Radio on Sunday plans to air the story of the recent rebroadcast of the 1943 Sunpapers Christmas Show and its impact on a Catonsville woman, who heard her father's voice on the program for the first time as an adult.

Weekend All Things Considered was scheduled to include the story of the joint project by the Sun and WYPR-FM, which recently aired the 1943 show originally produced by the Sun's World War II correspondents in England featuring the voices of soldiers.

One of them was was Sgt. Cody L. Wolf, a warplane turret gunner who was killed in action over Germany in January, 1944. His daughter, Margaret Ann Wolf Harris of Catonsville, was 17 months old when he died and had no memory of her father's voice, which she heard online after the rebroadcast on Dec. 20. In an email to the Sun, she wrote "Today I heard my father's voice for the very first time. You have sent me a very treasured Christmas present."
