Radio Drama This Week: Ebenezer Scrooge Returns Christmas Eve

Lionel Barrymore plays Ebenezer Scrooge in the 1939 Mercury Theater on the Air production of Charles Dickens’ timeless story, “A Christmas Carol.” Radio listeners closely identified Barrymore with the grouchy character since he performed the role almost every Christmas between 1934 and 1953. It’s heard on 97.9 WHAV FM at 8 p.m., Christmas Eve, and repeated at 1 a.m.
