Last year we sampled holiday episodes from several other radio programs,
offering what we called “A Radio Christmas Sampler.” Listeners told us
they enjoyed this approach. So this year we offer “A Radio Christmas
Sampler Vol. II.” We sample from “Red Ryder Nails The Cleveland Kid,” Jean Shepherd Show, WOR Radio, New York, 24 Dec. 1970, “Back for Christmas,” Suspense, 23 Dec. 1943, starring Peter Lorre and “Britt Ponset’s Christmas Story,” The Six Shooter, 20 Dec. 1953, starring Jimmy Stewart. The latter is a fine retelling of the classic story by Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol.
