An excellent radio broadcast that elaborates on "It's a Wonderful Life."
28 December 1998 | by (Palacios, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a quirky and unique presentation of "It's a Wonderful Life" done as a live radio brodcast. The excellent acting done by the star studded cast, and even some goof ups because it is filmed live, add to the fun. Possibly the best part was watching the sound effects man in the background doing everything from knocking on doors to pouring out buckets of water.
