The Radioplay Hour - LIVE : Miracle on 34th Street was performed to a live audience, with audience participation, at historic Bankfoot House, situated on the Glass House Mountains, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
Unfortunately our original audio recording didn't work as well as we hoped, but we were able to use audio from video taken of the show. On this recording, which has been edited, you will hear the audience participate in creating some vocal sound effects and saying some lines.
