The Sound of Ideas takes a holiday to listen to Jonathan Winters's performance of the Charles Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol." Ebenezer Scrooge learns the error of his miserly ways in a supernatural tale from 1843, the moral of which has withstood the test of time. Some say this short story transformed Christmas into a major holiday. Before A Christmas Carol, there was surprisingly little celebration during the Christmas season. After its publication, the holiday became a high point of the year. Ohio-born Jonathan Winters recreates the story with an assist from Mimi Kennedy.
