The Martian Chronicles Part II

dimension-xThe Martian Chronicles Part II
(A new WTBC Broadcast, consisting of an hour-long audio essay featuring elements of an 29 September 1950 broadcast of Dimension X.)

Playlist & Footnotes:

And, welcome to Part II of “The Martian Chronicles” by Ray Bradbury.  I’ve veered from last week’s show a bit, and instead brought you some samples from the show we were remixing then, as well as one from 29 September, 1950, with the voices of Alexander Scourby, Dan Ocko and Joseph Julian, and a script again by Ernest Kinoy.  This story – only a few minutes of the show from August 1950 – is presented as a full 30 minute story, and offers more opportunity to introduce different songs and whatnot to the mix.  

This episode reminds me of one I did in 2012, just after the Curiosity Rover landed on Mars, and I probably cribbed some of the songs from that show, too.  Still, I think the mix is pretty excellent for this week, and I’m quite fond of the show as a whole.

Please, let me know what you think.  Drop me a line, and let me know what this all does for you.  But, most importantly:
