Fiction Diction Predilection 12.23.16 | A Christmas Story: The Screenplay by Jean Shepherd

Chart positions

This upload was 7th in the #college radio chart and 14th in the #comedy chart.

Join host Will Lesen for a special holiday edition of the Fiction Diction Predilection with a group reading of the shooting screenplay of "A Christmas Story" by Jean Shepherd, Bob Clark and Leigh Brown.

There's a longstanding tradition of radio drama productions of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" and as radio dramatists we love this idea. So, now that we've begun our own regular radio reading ritual, we've decided to recast the tradition to the mould of the American Christmas story by one of our finest humorists, Jean Shepherd. Shepherd, a Chicago native, began his humorist career on the radio - a medium whose influence is clear due to it's ubiquitous presence throughout the screenplay of "A Christmas Story".

We’d like to thank Emilie Bollache, Justin James, Noah Jurcin, Amy Kirsling, Rebecca Morgan, Eric Peyer, Max Phifty, Alexis Puhala, Bill Washburn & Fred Weaver and for lending their voices to the project.
