For Your Christmas Eve Listening Pleasure

As many of my readers may be aware, I collect and listen to old radio shows. The wonder of .Mp3's and other audio format makes listening to and collecting dramatic radio from the Golden Age of Radio easy to do. Great for background entertainment while multitasking (not that I know anything about that).

For those stuck at home in the Christmas Eve snow storm, or for those who want something to listen to on Christmas eve, I suggest taking the time to listen to one of the following:

The great Dragnet Christmas show from 1954, which can be listened to here.

The Classic Orson Welles/Lionel Barrymore Campbell Playhouse production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol from 1939 can be listened to here.

Lux Radio Theatre's production of A Miracle on 34th Street from 1948 is here.

For those wanting a little adventure and Christmas, The Shadow's Christmas episode is here.

And for a little humor, here is The Great Gildersleeve's Christmas Stray Puppy or Fibber McGee and Molly from 1949 here.
