The Martian Chronicles Part I

martian_chroniclesThe Martian Chronicles Part I
(A new WTBC Broadcast, consisting of an hour-long audio essay featuring elements of an 18 August 1950 broadcast of Dimension X.)

Playlist & Footnotes:

It would be far too easy to ramble on and on about starting over again, and beginnings where they are arbitrary, but instead, let us say that it is good to be back, and let’s keep it that way.  

This episode features a story from “The Martial Chronicles,” by Ray Bradbury.  First broadcast 18 August, 1950 by Dimension X radio, staring Inga Adams, Roger DeKoven and Donald Buka.  Adapted for radio by Ernest Kinoy.

This also features a lot of music and other editing that I had a lot of fun with, but won’t go into right now, or it’ll take another three hours before this posts.

Please, let me know what you think.  I’m quite proud of it, if I do say so myself.
