Merry Christmas from the WOTR Radio Network! Old Time Radio USA would love to be a part of your Christmas eve festivities. Beginning at 6pm ET, Old Time Radio USA's annual Christmas eve broadcast of "Twas the Night Before Christmas Special"! Over 7 hours of Christmas celebrations and wonderful, classic Christmas tales. We celebrate Christmas with comedy and variety with The Big Show with its Christmas Eve broadcast from 1950. Listen to classics tales from The Lux Radio Theater's presentation of "Miracle on 34th Street" and "It's A Wonderful Life". We also celebrate Christmas with the troops with the Command Performance "Christmas Day Special" from 1943. This star-studded special, hosted by Bob Hope, has such stars as Dinah Shore, Ed Gardner, Frances Langford, Fred Allen, George Marshall, Ginny Simms, Merwyn Bogue, Jack Benny, Jimmy Durante and many, many more! Additional Christmas celebration with the troops has from Christmas Eve 1943 "Christmas Eve at the Front" starring Lionel Barrymore, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and others. With a special pre-recorded message from President Franklin Roosevelt. Despite expected technical hitches, this historic broadcast almost certainly accomplished its goal. Families felt a bit closer to their loved ones – more than 3.5 million Americans were deployed overseas at the time of the show – on this special night of the year, which makes it a perfect addition to our Christmas Eve special. And we do not want to forget the ever popular "A Christmas Carol" from The Campbell Playhouse. Lionel Barrymore resurrects his ever-popular character as Ebenezer Scrooge from Christmas Eve 1939. So, we hope that you are able join Old Time Radio USA Saturday, December 24th beginning at 6pm ET for the greatest addition to your Christmas Eve celebrations!
