Default The Little Girl in the Yellow Dress

I'll always remember the Christmas traditions I enjoyed growing up in Detroit in the 50's. One of them I recall most fondly was the family gathering around the radio [no TV back then] on Christmas Eve to listen to a drama entitled The Little Girl in the Yellow Dress. We would sit in front the fireplace, stare into the flickering flames and be absorbed listening to this delightful fantasy. I don't think it's widely known outside Michigan, but I thought readers might enjoy this retelling from the Detroit News.

I never heard of it. I came along just after T.V. was a household item and don't remember listening to the radio for anything other than the Cardinals game. Boy, do I fondly remember listening to Harry Caray and Jack Buck, and "watching" the action through their descriptions.

Regards,
Thomas
