This Christmas, a direct line to a socially distant Santa

Jennifer Wing
Santa, who is also known as 65-year-old Jerry Galland, built a phone so he could connect with children this year at a shopping center in Kirkland, Washington. He's separated from his guests by several feet and plexiglass.

Maybe this year, because of the pandemic, you haven’t been able to make it out to see Santa. KNKX’s Jennifer Wing spent some time with him and tells us how he’s doing.


Jennifer Wing is a former KNKX reporter and producer who worked on the show Sound Effect and Transmission podcast.
