cbs radio mystery theater presents "a christmas carol"

there were 1399 cbs radio mystery theater programs and you can probably find them all for download online. the internet archive has quite a few.
It's ominous theme music and longtime host E.G. Marshall's invitation to "return next time for another adventure in the macabre" cast spells across the airwaves for loyal listeners - myself included. Those voices (usually in some form of distress or conflict) echoing through my ears were all too real.


CBSRMT programs, including commercials, were an hour long on the air. Most mp3 files have been edited to remove the commercials and the length is 40 to 45 minutes - although, some contain the entire program complete with commercials and a newscast at the end or whatever programming surrounded the program. This can be quite interesting listening as well and I consider that to be a bonus.


I am willing to share these programs free of charge and I ask for nothing in return. Feel free to ask for programs in the forum. ~ cbsrmt.info a fan site.
