Christmas Programs

The Dogcast: “It’s A Wonderful Life” On Radio For Your Christmas Pleasure!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun. In honor of the Christmas holiday I thought I’d give to you fine folks a couple of radio versions of the classic Frank Capra film “It’s A Wonderful Life.” The Jimmy Stewart-led classic is now a staple of holiday programming and it’s message of hope is more relevant than ever. Here I have two versions. The first features Jack Benny and his gang doing their slightly off-kilter version of “It’s A Wonderful Life” back in 1947. The second is is a Screen Director’s Playhouse version of the film from 1949 starring Jimmy Stewart in the radio version of one of his most famous screen roles. It also features Arthur Q. Bryan as Clarence The Angel. Good Stuff. So enjoy and Merry Christmas to everyone! So Sayeth The Kendog!
