The enchanting NPR holiday favorite is finally on CD.
“Old Marley was as dead as a doornail”—and so, nearly, was
Christmas itself when Charles Dickens published A Christmas Carol in 1843. Most traditions had been forgotten, and
few if any employees got time off to celebrate. Dickens’ story captured the
imagination of a generation and transformed December 25 into a major holiday.
For many National Public Radio listeners, it wouldn’t be
Christmas without hearing Jonathan Winters perform A Christmas Carol. The master comedian brilliantly recreates
Dickens’ cast of colorful characters: Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim,
Jacob Marley’s spirit, and the three Christmas ghosts, Past, Present, and
Future, in this distinctive and charming reading.
