CKWX Dickens Christmas Carol

Postby CubbyCam » Sun Dec 08, 2013 11:36 am

While digging in my digital database for the "Radio Bethlehem Reports" series, I came across one of my all time favourite local radio dramas... starring more than a few people you may recognize.

A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens

Adapted for radio by Brian Lord.
Produced by David Kilbank

Scrooge played by Brian Lord.
Other voices performed by David Kilbank, Steve Ivings, Doreen Copeland, Matthew McBride, Don Kennedy, Jeff Palmer, Shawn Webster, Rob Crowston, Rob Robson, Gail Hildred and Tom Lucas.

Narration by Campbell McCubbin, Julie Brown, Bob Merchant and Sheila Gardner.

I figure it was done around 1989... but I could be out by as much as a decade either way. :-)

Brian did a masterful job of the script, basically taking a highlighter to a paperback copy of the Dickens original, and using only the original text. He's also one hell of an actor... as Scrooge. And I have to mention Dave Kilbank's amazing production on this piece. It's delightful. Runs about 55 minutes... Here's the link: http://www.radiowest.ca/xmas/xmascarol.mp3

Enjoy and have a very merry Christmas...

Cam ... Moved it to the Christmas section, it was kind of buried away in it's old home! :gbhouse:
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.
