“Back for Christmas” with Peter Lorre on XM Radio

Merry Christmas from Sirius XM Radio – and Peter Lorre!

The Radio Classics channel, Channel 82 on the XM Radio dial, celebrates Christmas week with a number of Christmas-themed old-time radio shows – including Peter Lorre’s Suspense episode “Back for Christmas”.

“Back for Christmas” will air several times during the week of Dec. 21 to 27, 2014, including the following:

“Back for Christmas” originally aired over CBS on Dec. 23, 1943. Peter plays Hubert Schumacher, a professor of botany who digs a Devil’s Garden as a bed for rare orchids in his cellar. While his overbearing wife Hermione plans their trip to America, Hubert makes plans of his own – involving a new Mrs. Schumacher and the disposal of Hermione.

Plans go awry . . . . on all fronts.
