This week on From the Vault we premiere you a new radio drama from KPFK-Los Angeles host Julio Martinez and the Arts in Review Repertory Players, Keeping Christmas Well, a story about the origins of A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens. But before we get to Ebenezer Scrooge and the Cratchit family, we’ll hear a 1988 WBAI-New York radio drama production of Grace Paley’s The Loudest Voice, about a Jewish girl in 1930’s New York who, because of her clear, loud voice and expressive reading, is chosen to narrate her school’s Christmas play.
