Entertaining Dickens' Radio Drama!

The Colonial Radio Players deliver another quality performance with this production of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". The talented voice actors are backed by perfectly utilized sound effects and a musical score that ranges from hauntingly scary to wonderfully uplifting. A great choice for bedtime listening during the holiday season.

Pretty good

This was enjoyable, but maybe not my very favorite version ever. Nothing really to complain about, though.

Was time a problem?

The performance was very good but it seems that they had to speed up the narration. When ever he talks it about 2x speed. I guess they had a time limit to stay within. Still very good.
