Join us for a first-of-its-kind, audio Advent Calendar, as Charles Dickens reads A Christmas Carol in England, 1843.
Join us in 1843 at the Royal Victoria Theater in London, England! Mr. Charles Dickens will be doing a public reading of his most recent work, A Christmas Carol. If we hurry, we might just make it.
Meet Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge. A businessman of London who rules his business with an iron fist. Unfortunately, we are too late to meet his partner, Jacob Marley, for he has been dead seven years.
Fred, Scrooge's nephew, has quite a different idea of Christmas than his uncle. He attempts to persuade Scrooge to celebrate Christmas, but Ebenezer is not an easy one to win over!
Two portly gentlemen enter Scrooge’s office to request donations for their charitable services. Christmas is meant for generosity! They are greeted less warmly than they would have hoped for.
Journey with Scrooge through Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Travel through far away lands. Experience the pain of repentance and the beauty of redemption.
The Merry Beggars is the entertainment division of Relevant Radio, a Catholic radio network in the United States with over 190 radio stations reaching a potential audience of 250 million souls.
It is! 100% free. Forever. We're able to provide our shows for free due to the generous benefactors behind Relevant Radio and The Merry Beggars. Because of their vision, we're able to create original shows and provide them totally free of charge.
We will never sell or share your email address (or personal information) to anyone. If you like our programming and content, you can make a donation and support us producing new shows here.
We are adding new content monthly and, as we gain momentum, we will be adding new shows weekly. In 2022, we'll be adding living entertainment, original series, and a host of original programming. Get ready!
It's great for kids. And for adults! All of our shows are produced for the whole family. We want our shows to be enthralling to Mom, Dad, young James who's gone off to college, Sarah in grad school, and the toddler twins. That said, you know your child's sensitivity best. There may be some programs that are too intense for young children. But there will not be inappropriate content, cursing, or other such tawdry behaviors.
Insofar as audio, yes. In every other respect, not really. We spend over a year developing original scripts and have pulled in as many as 25 actors to record our full-cast productions. While some of our shows are simpler (Behind the Scenes), we aim to create immersive entertainment that transports you to galaxies far far away and into adventures you've only dreamed of.
