Sunday Night Funnies 1986 Christmas Episode

Sunday Night Funnies 1986 Christmas EpisodeA few years ago, I interviewed Rick Hodge and the first question I asked him was about the Sunday Night Funnies. The Sunday Night Funnies was an hour-long comedy show that aired on 104.5 CHUM-FM each Sunday night and I loved it.

This week, I received an email from Jay who found me after Googling 'Sunday Night Funnies'. Jay also loved the Sunday Night Funnies, particularly the annual Christmas episode. He recorded the 1986 Christmas episode to cassette on his old boombox and recently converted it to MP3. Here's the entire 1986 Christmas episode of the Sunday Night Funnies:

Thanks for sharing this with us, Jay. When Jay isn't listening to old episodes of the Sunday Night Funnies, he's busy in his workshop remaking furniture. Learn more about that at

I used to listen to the this and then Theatre of the Mind, which came on directly after.

Not sure if you remember that one - used to play old radio shows.

I don't remember very much about them except one that was called I Was a Communist for the FBI, I think. No one can say "comrade" with as much venom as a 1950s radio actor.

Theatre of the Mind would always play Miracle on 34th Street and/or A Christmas Carol after the Sunday Night Funnies special.

Fun times.

Listening to these now. Man they bring back the memories. The wife and i used to listen to this show every Sunday night.

I loved that after a certain hour profanity was allowed on the radio. It was like, ok kids, go to bed, it's adult time now. Does anyone know if this is still the case? Could they still air Eddie Murphy or George Carlin, or Chris Rock today?
