    Hello all - I posted this a few weeks ago in the UHall OT forum and thought I would share it here as well.

    When I was in college I had a professor who was an old time radio guy. He was in the business when it started and was a really cool dude. He turned me on to the old time radio dramas of the mid-late 1930s. About a year ago I came across this site (http://www.mercurytheatre.info) that has a number of the old radio dramas available for download. They are in the public domain and therefore free to host, download and listen to. This list includes the famous/infamous War of the Worlds broadcast as well as many others. I have put a number of these on CD to listen to in the car while I commute to and from work and highly recommend them if you are so inclined.

    I post this at this time of year because it also includes two excellent versions of "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. This is one of my all-time favorite Christmas stories and I thought that some of you just might feel the same.

    Enjoy & Happy Holidays!
