Christmas Classics on Old-time Radio

Christmas is twenty days away, which makes it a great time to start celebrating the holiday season in earnest on Once Upon a Screen.  To kick off the celebrations here are two old-time radio show broadcasts of beloved Christmas classics:

First from the “Lux Presents Hollywood” series sponsored by Lux, which guarantees “YOU too can have the kind of skin men can’t resist!”  That’s the beauty of Lux.


Now in a new bath size!


And now Lux Presents Hollywood:

The Shop Around the Corner” (June 23, 1941) – starring Claudette Colbert and Don Ameche


From 1948 a Screen Guild Theater special presentation of “The Bishop’s Wife” (May 11, 1953) – starring Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven.

For the best entertainment available, put a radio on your wish list this Christmas.



Peace and Joy!

    1. I need to thank you for bringing this to my attention. It seems the channel that had all the Lux Shows available has closed. I’m bummed about it and apologize. I was able to update two of these and will search for the third.
