A Christmas Carol–along with the Proper Apologies to Charles Dickens


Dear Friends,

Though our travels have been fewer than we would have liked during the past year, we can at least offer you some refuge from the cares and woes of this world by taking you to a tavern of the mind. Through the efforts of our partner in podcasting at the Barfly Confessional and the talents of the Bleecker Street Players, we are very pleased to present this years performance of A Christmas Carol.

So pour the pints, steam the toddies, spike the eggnog, and find yourself a warm place by the fire!

Then click onto the image of old Scrooge  below to enjoy this Charles Dickens classic once more.


This year’s reading of A Christmas Carol was recorded live on December 18, 2015 during the weekly broadcast of the Bleecker Street Cafe over WDVR-FM in Sergeantsville, New Jersey.

We wish you and yours many blessings during this Holiday Season, and we look forward to sharing the continued journey of American Public House Review during the upcoming year!

Glasses Raised…Spirits Lifted…Journeys Shared

Another Bah Humbug on Bleecker Street

Scrooge and Bob Cratchit sharing a Smoking Bishop

“A merry Christmas, Bob!” said Scrooge, with an earnestness that could not be mistaken, as he clapped him on the back. “A merrier Christmas, Bob, my good fellow, than I have given you, for many a year! I’ll raise your salary, and endeavour to assist your struggling family, and we will discuss your affairs this very afternoon, over a Christmas bowl of smoking bishop, Bob!”          

– Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol (1843

Though our journeys together over the last twelve months have been to some extent curtailed because of our individual circumstances, me and my cohorts at American Public House Review  were at least able to once more gather together at year’s end to celebrate the season with yet another attempt at properly paying homage to Mr. Charles Dickens. The following version of A Christmas Carol was recorded during The Bleecker Street Cafe in the broadcast studios of WDVR-FM in Sergeantsville, New Jersey on December 20, 2013. It is with great pleasure that we share this year’s somewhat faithful adaptation of Mr. Dickens’ finest work.

So stoke the fire, stir the Smoking Bishop, and sit back and enjoy by clicking on the following links:
