The most famous Christmas ghost story is Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” On this Christmas Eve, the Ghost Radio blog is proud to present not one, not two, but three radio adaptation of this timeless classic.
The first one stars Lionel Barrymore and was presented on Orson Welles’ famous radio program The Campbell Playhouse. This production was performed a number of times, but this recording comes for December 23, 1938.
The second production features Laurence Olivier both as narrator and the voice of Scrooge. This production was originally broadcast on Theatre Royale on December 24, 1953.
And finally we have a production that stars E. G. Marshall as Scrooge. This production was originally broadcast on the CBS Radio Mystery Theater on December 24, 1975.
Listen to one, listen to all three, play them while trimming the tree.
