Babe of the Worlds - A Unique Dramatic Audio Presentation of the Christmas Story
This audio drama was produced and recorded in front of a live audience on December 12, 2014 in Phoenix, AZ. This radio play was written by Jeffrey Adams from Icebox Radio Theater and was produced and recorded with permission from him.
Babe of the Worlds is the Christmas story told in a way that you've probably never heard before. Imagine that the little town of Bethlehem had a radio station. Then imagine that the events leading up to and surrounding the birth of Christ are broadcast as news reports from that radio station. That is the world that is explored in this half hour dramatic audio presentation.
