Summary

Summary

The CBS Radio Workshop aired from January 27, 1956, through September 22, 1957, and was a revival of the prestigious Columbia Workshop from the 1930s and 1940s. Creator William Froug launched the series with a powerhouse two-part adaptation of Brave New World and booked author Aldous Huxley to narrate his famous novel. “We’ll never get a sponsor anyway,” CBS vice president Howard Barnes explained to Time, “so we might as well try anything.”

The CBS Workshop regularly featured the works of the world’s greatest writers, including Ray Bradbury, Archibald MacLeish, William Saroyan, Aldous Huxley, Lord Dunsany, and Ambrose Bierce. This collection contains sixteen dramas starring Alexander Scourby, William Conrad, Parley Baer, Mary Jane Croft, Stacy Harris, Alan Reed, Daws Butler, Virginia Gregg, Ben Wright, Howard McNear, Edgar Barrier, June Foray, Hans Conried, Joseph Kearns, and Jeanette Nolan.
