Radio Riel is proud to announce the availability on Mixcloud of the popular full‐cast performance by the Radio Riel Players of A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, dramatised in three parts. But this announcement is tinged with sadness as we remember Alastair Whybrow, our friend, cast member (he played Marley along with some other parts – see below) and Caledon personality, who sadly passed away in December 2014 following a valiant battle against cancer. We dedicate this broadcast to his memory, and to his family and friends in‐world and out.

Hear this Second Life Christmas classic in which residents of the Steamlands come together to add a Caledon slant to a traditional seasonal tale. Each part lasts around 30 minutes.

Part 1: Scrooge and Marley

Part 2: Christmas Present

Part 3: Christmas Yet To Come
