While our annual 7 Days Of All Christmas Shows begins this year on Monday the 23rd, there are a fair amount of holiday programs also mixed into the regular rotation this week.

We celebrate Humphrey Bogart (Bold Venture,Suspense, Bob Hope Show, Bergen & McCarthy); Irene Dunne (alongside Cary Grant in Lux’s My Favorite Wife, guest on Charlie McCarthy Show); Sydney Greenstreet (Nero Wolfe); Marlene Dietrich (Suspense, Duffy’s Tavern); Richard Widmark (Molle Mystery Theatre, Suspense, Inner Sanctum Mysteries); Cathy Lewis (My Friend Irma, Broadway Is My Beat, Suspense); Lew Ayres (Dr. Kildare); House Jameson (The Aldrich Family); writer Morton Fine (Crime Classics, Broadway Is My Beat, Escape, Suspense) and announcer Dick Joy (Sam Spade, Dr. Kildare).
As I said, there is also some Christmas programming including radio versions of “A Miracle On 34th Street”, “A Christmas Carol” and plenty of Christmas comedy from The Jack Benny Program, Father Knows Best, My Favorite Husband, Bing Crosby Show, Burns & Allen and more.
As to the regular programming, here are some of the highlights: the weekly five part Yours Truly Johnny Dollar Marathon; a western themed episode of the 1980 revival series The Mutual Radio Theater known as “Fence Cutting” as well as Lux Radio Theatre’s version of “The Count Of Monte Cristo”
