A Christmas Carol - 1941 Radio Play

This one's special to me. It's a 1941 radio play of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" (you know: Scrooge, Tiny Tim, & the ghosts). My dad bought this record long before I was born. Growing up it became a tradition in our house to listen every Chrismas Eve. Now I could probably recite the whole thing from memory.

It never would have become a family tradition if it weren't so good. The cast does a great job of telling the whole story in only 22 minutes (one side of a vinyl record) with many memorable scenes. Ronald Colman plays the role of Scrooge. Check it out:

Thanks for posting this. We played it in the car on the way to visit family today and it certainly added to the Christmas spirit.
