An Audio Archive special feature presentation of one of the greatest and most beloved Christmas stories: Miracle on 34th Street, starring Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O´Hara, and John Payne. This is a classic movie condensed and performed live as a one-hour radio play by The Lux Radio Theater in 1948. In the words of Lux Theater producer William Keely, ´´It´s wrapped in a gay covering of laughter, tied with a bright ribbon of good humor, and decorated with the three sparkling stars of the 20th Century Fox picture.´´ Miracle on 34th Street is the story of what takes place in New York City following Macy´s Thanksgiving Day Parade, as a single mother and her daughter, a lawyer, and many others are left wondering whether a department-store Santa is simply a nice old man with a big heart and a big white beard or if he is, in fact, the real Kris Kringle! The 1947 film included the introduction of then child actress Natalie Wood. When Lux produced their Miracle on 34th Street little Natalie was unavailable to play her original part for the radio, but Maureen O´Hara, John Payne, and most importantly, Edmund Gwenn were all on hand to recreate their film roles for the microphones of the CBS Radio network and a nation of rapt radio listeners. The Audio Archive presentation of Lux Radio Theater´s Miracle on 34th Street is presented in it´s entirety, including nostalgic Lux soap commercials (and instructions for using Lux soap flakes as snow for your Christmas tree!) and is preceded by a short introduction by host and old time radio fan and aficionado Bill Mills. 1.

Autumn Trilogy is an anthology of holiday stories from the SRP Radio Podcast and the sex.religion.politics website, written and produced by Chicago comedian Greg Silva. Both podcast and website explore, in funny and provocative ways, the three things we’re not supposed to talk about in public - all from the point of view of the man on the street, the ´´little guy”, the people Jesus referred to as ´´the poor in spirit”. Humor and inspiration for the other 1 percent. Make no mistake. These are earthy, gritty stories, mixing the sacred with the profane. After all, life at the bottom of the barrel is not pretty. But sometimes God waits to speak until we’re completely beaten, and we have to listen. Autumn Trilogy: Three Stories About Sex, Death, & God "A Still, Small Scratching (or, The Irritating Voice of God)" - A man devastated by the Great Recession struggles for a reason to keep going. Then, he hears the voice of God in a very strange place. "The Blurry Prodigal (or, Sex and Death in Virginia)" Pretending to be gay to get free drinks is not a bad idea. Pretending to be gay to pick up girls.... Well, that is brilliant! "My Christmas, My Easter (or, Why Every Day Is a Holiday)" Some miracles happen instantaneously. Others take time. 1.

Patron saints, headlocks, thrash metal, crash diets, dogpiles, nutpulls and only the occasional assault. Set in Little Falls, New Jersey in 1993, PINS weaves the classic story of a Catholic saint into a compelling modern life - and near-death - account of Joey Nicci, a fifteen-year-old Italian-American wrestler. After befriending Donald "Dink" Kohrs, Joey and his new posse get involved in pranks and partying that eventually get out of control, resulting in the death of a maligned fellow teammate. The ensuing legal battle and media frenzy alter Joey´s life and his self-perception as a gay teenager while shattering his fragile love for fellow teammate Dink. Like his patron saint, his battle against his own teammates forces him to suffer for his beliefs. His survival becomes a literary miracle. A compelling story of a loving yet confused family, coaches and teachers struggling with multiple issues of violence and homophobia amid the clan-like world of teenage athletes, PINS brings together elements now frighteningly common in the media: bullying jocks, assaults on weaker students, faculty and families unwittingly allowing such behavior. Called "prescient" and "heartfelt" by two of today´s leading writers, PINS layers symbols from the worlds of animals and religion, yet while achieving a unique literary style, it remains accessible to the group for whom it speaks - gay teenagers. 1.

Christmas is a time for giving - what do you do when no one gives a damn? For Zachary Weston Christmas means sleeping on a churchyard bench in the freezing snow with nothing better in his future. Thrown out of his home for being gay, he is left without money or, it seems, anywhere to go. Until a stranger shows him that some people do give a lot more than a damn. Ben Hamilton is a rookie cop in his small home town. He finds a young throwaway, fresh from the city, sleeping on a bench in the churchyard on a snowy Christmas Eve. Can he be the one to give Zachary his own Christmas miracle? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Crisden. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/024701/bk_acx0_024701_sample.mp3.
