==========
Note: I know, I know. You're thinking, "Oh, another one of these, eh?". This is a recording that I did last year for family and friends and would like to offer it up to the site. I've tagged each section and processed them in the asked for format. I know there are other versions in the catalog, but I'd really love to have this one hosted here. Thanks so much!

The miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is a cold-hearted man of business and has little time for the good humor and charity of the Christmas season. But that's about to change. A visit from his deceased business partner sets in motion a night in which Scrooge is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. Will his listen to their messages? Will he heed their warnings? Ebenezer Scrooge is about to take a Christmas journey that he won't soon forget. (Summary by Kyle Munley)

One can never have enough Christmas Carols, be right back Kyle. :)

You are set up, please fill in the titles in the MW, also note the change in the filename..
Example filename
christmascarol_##_dickens.mp3
We require lowercase in the filename and underscores just keeps things standard.
There isn't a requirement for your initials in a solo project. :wink:

Oh no...I would feel like a Scrooge if this deprived students from a chance to do the book.
