More Countdown to Christmas!

This Christmas, our hope is that despite the hustle and bustle you are able to take a few moments for yourself and enjoy some of the best that Old Time Radio has to offer. Linked below is a collection of vintage radio programs ranging from downright hilarious to genuinely heart-warming. We hope you enjoy!

Best Wishes for a very Merry Christmas to each and every one of you! Thank you for your continued support.

Bing Crosby Christmas Show - December 24, 1947.

Fibber McGee and Molly - Best Christmas Decorations - December 20, 1949.

Abbott and Costello - Christmas Program - December 25, 1947.

Dragnet - Twenty-Two Rifle for Christmas - December 20, 1951.

Suspense - Twas The Night Before Christmas - December 21, 1953.

Lux Radio Theater - Miracle on 34th Street - December 20, 1948.

If you listen to any Old Time Radio Christmas program this year, listen to this one. Easily the best. The Amos 'n' Andy Christmas Program. In the Annual Christmas Radio Show, Amos (played by Freeman Gosden) explained the Lord's Prayer to his daughter Arbadella (played by radio actress, Barbara Jean Wong). This heart-warming script was so overwhelmingly popular, it was repeated every Christmas Eve for 14 years, from 1940 to 1954.
