Norman Corwin

If you’ve read much on my site, then you know I love audio drama. One of my favorite stories comes from Norman Corwin. “The Plot To Overthrow Christmas” was written in 1938. The first time I heard it was as a teenager in a small town. The 1942 version of the play was aired on WSIU, the same station where I heard Nightfall, A Canticle For Leibowitz, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, Star Wars, The Fourth Tower Of Inverness, and many more. I did a bit of remastering to remove quite a bit of hum, hiss, clicks, pops, and surface noise. It’s not perfect, but it sounds good enough to truly enjoy the show. Have a listen and see if it doesn’t become a Christmas Classic to you as well.
