Summary
For five decades, Alan Maitland was celebrated for his resonant mellow CBC radio voice - and perhaps, most famously, for the stories he read over the airwaves in his alter ego of Fireside Al. For 19 years, Fireside Al read his favorite stories to a devoted radio audience and even though Alan Maitland died in 1999, his voice has been captured for posterity in a highly valued set of sound recordings of these magnificent performances. This nostalgic collection includes nine Yuletide-themed stories, most penned before 1920, as told by Alan Maitland during his broadcasting career with CBC Radio
