CHRISTMAS AT C-R-T

There's something magical about listening to a radio play with your tree all lit up in a darkened room and the sparkles from the ornaments glistening.  TV cannot capture that kind of magic, when your imagination takes over. Kids become enthralled, and adults remember a simpler time when the most important thing on your mind was, "is Santa going to bring me the most important thing on my list?"

Here are the links to our Christmas programs on Amazon (you can also find them on Audible and iTunes as downloads, or at Barnes and Nobel).

Updates

Tonight is the 8th annual broadcast of A CHRISTMAS CAROL on Sirius XM, Ch. 80, 7pm ET, 4pm PT. We recorded this show in November of 2004, I think it was Thanksgiving week, and it was on Audible in early December; just a couple of weeks turn around (of course I edited day and night). Brilliance released it on CD in 2010, and it still does good  business.  The Broadcast will be followed by our 2008 Christmas Special.

THE STAR ANGEL will have an encore broadcast Thur. Dec. 20th at 7pm.

THE SEVEN POOR TRAVELLERS. THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH and THE CHIMES are all available on CD and DL from Brilliance. You can find them all on our website at  www.colonialradio.com

While not a Christmas program, our final new production of 2012 will premiere on Sirius XM Sun. Dec. 30th on Ch. 80. BEACON HILL is set in 1898 Boston, and anyone who likes Upstairs/Downstairs and the popular Downton Abbey may enjoy this radio version of the troubles of the very rich and their staffs. We had a lot of fun with this, and many new actors are introduced to CRT listeners in the 8, one hour episodes.
We will begin recording an additional 8 episodes in the late Spring.

We have two final recording sessions left for this year; THE FATHER BROWN MYSTERIES will record two episodes, and we will also be recording the feature length TOM CORBETT - DANGER IN DEEP SPACE, a sequel to this years hit TOM CORBETT - SPACE CADET.

Speaking of Father Brown, after 16 episodes the series is getting a bit of a make-over. Jeffrey Gage has composed a brand new score that will replace the music we have used in the previous episodes.

That's all for now!  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and the very best of the Holiday Season to you.
