1939 Radio Play, Lets join everyone in the parlor and have a listen.

The forward of the book reads"

"I have endeavored in this ghostly little book to raise the Ghost of an Idea which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly and no one wish to lay it."

 Signed ==  Their Faithful Friend and Servant,  Charles Dickens December 1843


The Campbell Playhouse (1938–1940)

Yes, the soup company that we know of today! The Campbell Playhouse was a live CBS radio drama series directed by and starring Orson Welles. Produced by Welles and John Houseman, it was a sponsored continuation of The Mercury Theatre on the Air. The series offered hour-long adaptations of classic plays and novels, as well as adaptations of popular motion pictures.

When Welles left at the end of the second season, The Campbell Playhouse changed format as a 30-minute weekly series that ran for one season (1940–41).
