I wish they would make a special page for these, because not all of the links work anymore. Jill Bevilacqua has done some wonderful things, including radio dramas on St. Paul and St. Francis of Assissi that I have heard. It would be nice if they would fill out the productions with more actors in the Old Time Radio style, but that would be expensive. Highly effective, though.

If you are interested in how radio drama can serve the Church, check out episodes from the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement's popular Ave Maria radio program, which was broadcast from 1939-1969. The Friars are making them available on the internet here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/fr-bob-warren These shows were recorded in New York by professional actors and their 40-part Life of Christ is especially masterful. Their website is here: http://www.atonementfriars.org/ Hopefully they will make these available on CD, but they are free to download currently from Fr. Bob's Blog Talk Radio page.

God bless!


Thanks for the comment. The first 9 episodes now seem to be gone. I will check out the Ave Maria program.
