Subject: Merry Christmas everybody!
Season's greetings fellow Facebookians! Whatever you celebrate (or don't celebrate) on December 25, we hope this season is filled with joy and merriment — and we hope you'll let us keep you company this weekend as we wish you a Merry Christmas with some wonderful sounds from not-so-long ago!
On Saturday (December 25), "Those Were the Days" celebrates the season with Christmas-time offerings from "Casey, Crime Photographer," "The WLS Dinner Bell Program," "Let George Do It," "The Bob Hope Show," (in which Bob, Jinx Falkenberg, and Irving Berlin perform for the troops of the Berlin airlift), and to top it off, Lionel Barrymore as Ebeneezer Scrooge in the classic 1939 production of "A Christmas Carol"! (We might have few other little "presents" besides.) Join us from 1 to 5 pm CST at http://www.facebook.com/l/c187enUTI-...A;www.wdcb.org
(or, if you're in the Chicago area, at 90.9 FM).
Then, on Sunday, "Radio' Golden Age" offers a little Xmas chaser with a 90-minute "Command Performance" from 1943, featuring Bob Hope, Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Dinah Shore, Kay Kyser, and many more big names offering season's greetings to the Armed Forces! Whether you're cleaning up from your festivities or you want something to listen to as you polish off leftovers, we hope you'll join us from noon to 2 pm CST at http://www.facebook.com/l/c187epPhtB...sterdayusa.com
