4 Christmas Mysteries from the Golden Age of Radio

The Golden Age of radio offers a vast treasury of Christmas entertainment that still holds up today. I covered some of these shows with the help of  Chicago DJ Steve Darnall in episode 9 of the podcast.

Hardboiled detective shows were wildly popular in the Golden Age, so of course many of them got into the Christmas spirit. Here are four favorites, courtesy of the the Christmas Old Time Radio podcast.

Richard Diamond, Private Detective: A Contemporary Christmas Carol

The Incomparable Charlie Chan: The Man Who Murdered Santa Claus 1946

The Shadow: Joey’s Christmas Story

Let George Do It: Christmas Letter
