"** CANADA. On Christmas Eve (and perhaps even Christmas Day) I like to listen to CHML 900 in Hamilton, Ontario. And if you donít live within reach of CHML, fear not, for CHML streams at http://www.900chml.com/
On Christmas Eve (and a few other times through the holidays) one can hear A Paul Reid Christmas. To my mind this program is what theater of the mind is all about. For two hours, Paul takes us on a journey to Christmasís past --- evoking the memories, sounds and even the smells of Christmas in his youth. Paul Reid was a master story teller remembered fondly by those who knew him. Although he has been dead for almost a quarter of a century this annual program is his legacy.
Every year CHML gets numerous letters, phone calls and emails, enquiring whether the program will continue to be aired. It has become a CHML tradition. It is one of mine too. (It also airs on CJAD Montreal, another station where Reid worked for many years.)
After Paulís show is over, virtually all night, one can hear episode after episode of Christmas favourites from Jack Benny, The Life of Riley, Charlie McCarthy and all the great radio shows of days gone by. Itís a real treat if you love these old gems (Fred Waterer, Programming Matters, Dec ODXA Listening In via DXLD)"
Could be fun to stream during your Christmas Day celebrations.
