I am looking for an old radio broadcast for my wonderful Auntie while she is visiting! It was a story about a boy without a name that everyone called and then he finally got a name. She first heard it at Christmas time in 1962 on a radio station from Chilliwack, B.C. It was read by Gregory Peck! She thinks it was called "Wee Hey You". That is all the info I have. I would love to be able to somehow find this for her before she goes home. She said it was the most moving Christmas story she would ever heard. Any clues?

    That story was called \"The Lullaby of Christmas,\" and was indeed narrated by Gregory Peck, originally broadcast on December 24, 1956. The story, written by Charles Tazewell, concerned a little shepherd boy in Bethlehem who was mute. His real name is Ezechial, but the indifferent people around just call him, \"aay you.\"

    The good news is that a 33 rpm record of this show is readily available through various internet memorabilia sites. EBay.com almost always has at least one listed, particularly around Christmastime (although I've seen the album of this recording alone, it is almost always packaged with the Gregory Peck story on one side, and another Christmas tale narrated by Loretta Young on the other). I didn't see any at eBay right now, but I did find a cassette version at Amazon.com, in their \"z-shops,\" selling for only $6.00. If you'd like to have a look at that one.
