A Christmas Carol With Jonathan Winters

A public radio tradition hosted by NPR's Susan Stamberg. Master comedian Jonathan Winters presents a distinctive reading of Dickens' holiday classic, with a special performing edition prepared by Dickens for his own presentations. Also featuring Mimi Kennedy. 

The world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir continues its tradition of great artistry this season, with touching arrangements of familiar carols, and surprises with lesser-known melodies that are fast becoming the new classics.
