    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

The Campbell Playhouse - A Christmas Carol, 1939

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 11:04 am

I wanted to quickly let you know how this show came to your humble servant’s podcast. A while back I received an early Christmas present from Jerry Haendiges of The Vintage Radio Place at; he sent me a large package of programs, suggesting I run some here on the podcast…thing is, many of the programs he sent I’d never heard, and a few I’ve never heard _of,_ even as long as I’ve been in the hobby. So over the next several months I’m going to run some of the shows he sent in low-bandwidth MP3 format - even at 32kbps mono, these shows are some of the best-sounding shows around. But remember for even better quality, these shows along with a few bazillion others may be purchased directly from Jerry in either audio CD format, or ultra-high-quality MP3 format.

This version of “A Christmas Carol” is considered by many in the hobby to be the finest production of the story ever; after missing the previous year, Lionel Barrymore returns to his traditional role of Scrooge in this Mercury Theater production of the timeless Christmas tale. With wishes for a happy and prosperous holiday season, The Nostalgia Pages is proud to present Mr. Barrymore, Orson Welles, announcer Ernest Chappell, and the Mercury Theater on the Air in the Campbell Playhouse production of “A Christmas Carol,” originally broadcast sixty-eight years ago today on Christmas Eve, 1939.

Remember, you may listen to a stream of the show through the built-in player, manually download a copy, or add our RSS feed to your podcasting client (Juice, find a link on the sidebar, iTunes, or any other podcast client) and automatically receive all future programs directly to your computer or MP3 player!
