Our Miss Brooks And The Christmas Gift Mix Up

This radio show features the normal characters from this 1950’s comedy in all their glory to challenge our imaginations and place us in front of radio at home like a child grown up in the 50’s.

This episode begins innocently with Mrs. Davis, Miss Brooks landlady, presenting Miss Brooks with an early Christmas present prior to Miss Brooks leaving for school in the morning. What begins as an innocent situation mushrooms into laughingly wild happenings as this present starts making its way around thru the school to different persons. What is really inside the box makes this episode screamingly hilarious! Be sure to tune in!


A Christmas Wish

Adapted from The Great Rupert by Eileen Mitchell

This radio show provides us all with the REAL meaning of the Christmas during times similar to what many people are experiencing right now as they try to live each day thru the ongoing pandemic. A family of out of work vaudevillians during the Depression falls on hard times and is searching for a home to rent so they will be safe over the holiday season and beyond. But they really don’t have any money to pay for the rent. Enter a warm heated son and a mischievous dog playing the Secret Santa for all involved. This is a show that will warm your heart as it demonstrates that good will still prevails in this world!
