100 years of Russell Stover

As Russell Stover turns 100, the Kansas City tradition is still sparking joy. Plus: Musicians have been spreading holiday cheer on Kansas City's streetcar.

Russell and Clara Stover created their heritage chocolate brand in 1923. A century later, the Kansas City-based company is still making memories. KCUR's Laura Ziegler uncovers the secret to its longevity.

During the Kansas City Streetcar's Holiday Jam, live music fills the Union Station- or River Market-bound cars with holiday cheer. KCUR's Julie Denesha took a ride to talk with the musicians who make the magic happen.
