Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! This installment is our 2nd Annual Christmas Special, and Dave's choice, so he's bringing us an episode of "The Six-Shooter": BRITT PONSET'S CHRISTMAS CAROL. Will our discussion cause Paul to cry, "Fiddlesticks"? TUNE IN AND FIND OUT! 

And since we're on the subject of discussion, we hope to determine whether this entry meets the following criteria:

1. Is it truly representative of that series? (Can anyone point to it and say, "Yes, that is what [NAME OF SERIES] was all about.")

2. Is it an episode worthy of inclusion in any and every OTR aficionado's private collection?

So with this in mind, we three bring you, as our nineteenth number (but 6th official episode of S2), this episode of "The Six-Shooter" from 1953. We'll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it! Merry Christmas!

Please show your support of the podcast by doing any of the following!

To comment on how we might improve OTR-E, or give suggestions for future discussions, please write to us at f6point3@gmail.com . Put the word "Essentials" in the subject line.

Your feedback means a lot to us! A review at iTunes or at your usual podcatcher would be appreciated.

LIGHTS OUT: Christmas Story (12-22-37)

In this story written by series creator Wyllis Cooper, three World War One soldiers from different countries share a railway car and their lives intertwine with those of the Three Wise Men. A touching story that incorporates an unusual (for its time) sense of racial tolerance.

TEXACO STAR THEATRE Starring Fred Allen (12-20-42) with Guest Risë Stevens of the Metropolitan Opera

Fred Allen was famous in his day for his annual Christmas show that featured an unhappy Santa Claus who was striking against Christmas due to unfair treatment over two centuries. He would tell some random visitor to the North Pole the long, hilarious story of how he came to this sad decision.  Enjoy this classic of Old-Time Radio!

FIBBER McGEE & MOLLY: LOOKING FOR A CHRISTMAS TREE

THROUGHOUT THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, we'll be sharing a bunch of Christmas-themed shows, both old and new. We have four new shows coming your way: two OTR remakes, a Christmas story featuring Jake Dimes, Range Detective, and our 2nd Annual Old-Time Radio Essentials Christmas special. But because I enjoy the old stuff just as much as the new stuff, I wanted to share a few choice programs this month for our mutual enjoyment. So next up is this episode of "Fibber McGee & Molly". In this classic OTR comedy, the McGees are on the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree for their home at 79 Wistful Vista. A hilarious romp thru yesteryear! Originally aired 12-21-1943 on NBC Radio, sponsored by Johnson's Wax.

Check the feed regularly this month for more of our holiday-themed shows! You can thank me by listening and enjoying. Season's Greetings!
