Lux Radio Theater -- It's a Wonderful Life The word 'classic' never fit a story quite so well as it does "It's a Wonderful Life." This 1947 production for Lux Radio Theater is true to the film version with many of the stars reprising their famous roles for radio. Back are James Stewart as George Bailey, Donna Reed as Mary Hatch but without the unforgettable Lionel Barrymore as Potter. Nevertheless, you'll love the full hour broadcast. Aired in March, not December as one would suppose, this story (as if you need a preview) is about George Bailey who is in trouble... so much trouble he can't see his way back to happiness and wants to rid the world of himself and his mistakes. God sends Clarence to demonstrate just how blessed a life he has and how he has graced those around him. Cast include Victor Moore as Clarence, Bill Johnstone as Mr. Bailey, John McIntire as Joseph, Leo Cleary as Uncle Billy, Edwin Maxwell at Potter and Janet Scott as Mother.

Abbott & Costello -- Nuts & Bolts

Abbott & Costello -- Nuts & Bolts Ah, the sound of laughter, music to the comedian's ear. Few jokesters ever heard more of this music than the tandem of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. Outrageously popular on stage, in film, TV and especially on the radio, this, the original odd couple, dominated sketch comedy for years. They never brought their private difficulties, which were many, into public view, sparing their fans the drama and sorrows of their own lives. Too bad this ethos is long lost in Hollywood. Enjoy this hilarious episode from the program that made them world figures, The Abbott & Costello Show! For more Vintage Radio shows, please visit us at VintageRadioShows.com.

The Adventures of Sam Spade -- The Vaphio Cup Caper One of our all time favorite series, Sam Spade was well acted, well produced and well written.
