I'm a big fan of old time radio shows.
When I lived near Washington D.C., I tuned in regularly to the Big Broadcast on Sunday evenings. The show ran (as close to possible) full runs of classic shows as well as an hour of requests. Each year leading up to Christmas, we'd hear a variety of Christmas-themed shows in the request hour.
Today, I thought I'd do a countdown of the 12 days of Christmas with some of the Christmas-themed episodes of various old time radio shows I enjoy and listen to this time of year. I figured I'd start off with an interesting classic from the show, "Suspense." It's called 'Out for Christmas' and it stars Raymond Burr (better known to most as TV's Perry Mason).
Click on the link and you should be able to download at no charge. Also, don't worry about men in dark suits showing up at your place for downloading the episode. Most OTR shows had the copyrights run out several years ago and are free to share on the web.
Enjoy and tune in tomorrow for the next installment.
