Re-Imagine Radio Presents

A Note from the Producer

Every holiday season since 2013, Re-Imagined Radio has offered a version of the Charles Dickens classic tale, A Christmas Carol. We thought this year to do something different.

And so, we present the best bits from Christmas episodes of seven very different radio programs. Hence our episode title, "A Radio Christmas Sampler."

See the "Background" section, below, for details regarding the radio programs and Christmas episodes we sampled.

We hope you will enjoy listening to "A Radio Christmas Sampler," either on KXRW-FM or KXRY-FM radio or via live stream. Re-Imagined Radio is also on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Please find us, friend us, and share your thoughts.Thank you for your support of Re-Imagined Radio throughout this year. Happy Holidays and best wishes for the New Year everyone!

Producer and Host

We sample Christmas episodes from seven different radio programs for "A Radio Christmas Sampler." 

These include a scene with Scrooge and another with Tiny Tim from our 2020 broadcast of "A Radio Christmas Carol" by Metropolitan Performing Arts, who also provide Christmas songs throughout. Selections from "Vic’s Christmas Card List" highlight the unique humor and love of outlandish names that are so much a part of the series Vic and Sade, 1932-1944, created and written by Paul Rhymer. "Dancing Dan’s Christmas," from The Damon Runyon Theatre, 1949, speaks to how, at Christmas, we may chart a new course for our lives. "Decorating the Christmas Tree," proves a shocking experience for Jack Benny, host of the 1951 Christmas episode of The Jack Benny Program. "Department Store Santa" samples a performance by Frank Sinatra from the Christmas 1953 episode of his little-known radio series, Rocky Fortune. "Korean Christmas Carol" considers, from a paranormal perspective, being away from family and friends at Christmas, in our sample from the Christmas 1959 episode of Suspense. Our "Radio Christmas Sampler" closes with a joyful rendition of "Jingle Bells" by Bing Crosby and others sampled from the 1944 Christmas episode of Bing Crosby and The Kraft Music Hall.

Upcoming Episode

Next month, Re-Imagined Radio presents The Voices performing a radio adaptation of Richard Holeton's epic and award-winning hypertext novel, Figurski at Findhorn on Acid. Based on real life characters, an intentional New Age community, and yes, THAT acid, Holeton's novel is called "electronic literature too big for a single genre." We agree and offer a radio sensorium, a slice of this unique literary work. Listen to "Figurski at Findhorn on Acid," Monday, 17 January, 1:00 PM, KXRW-FM and KXRY-FM.
