A CBC Radio 3 Christmas Carol

xmas-blogHey now,

So, my CBC Radio 3 show, the Wrath of Khanna has a weekly literary gathering called the What’cha Readin’ Book Club. Basically we spend a month devoted to a single book and we read and discuss it together every Friday morning from 7-10 AM EST on the R3 blog.
In December we’re doing something pretty special. Aside from spending our time with the late Mordecai Richler‘s Barney’s Version, I have written and produced a satiric, radio play adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. On December 24th, the entire CBC Radio 3 Christmas Carol will be available as a podcast that people can download at cbcbradio3.com or on iTunes. But starting Friday December 3rd, I’ll be airing two or three scenes a week on my Wrath of Khanna show, which simulcasts on cbcradio3.com and Sirius 86.
The cast can be viewed below and, based on its Canadian indie-rock pedigree, this is definitely not your grandparent’s Christmas Carol. It might be a tad “inside” in many respects but the classic story is there.
So yeah, I hope you enjoy it. It’s supposed to be funny.

Happy holidays!
