    Very clever writing

    a nice mix of Christmas stories from the 19 thirties and forties radio programs. I loved Abbott and Costello and their word play. baby Snooks was also very entertaining. so get that mug of hot chocolate ready light the fire and sit back and get some Christmas cheer.

    Love the walk down memory lane.

    Love the walk down memory lane. I remember listening to the radio as a child in SC. Then later in NY and PA. We did have a TV in the 50's. But the radio was on all day and only TV in the evening. L hope to listen to more shows.
    Thanks. Angie

    They still have it!

    What did you love best about Christmas Radio Classics?

    The good, clean humor. No fowl language.
    Abbot and Costello are hilarious.
