AUDIO: X Minus One – Bradbury Twofer!

Posted in Audio, Books, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 11, 2012 by ghostradioworld

We continue our Ray Bradbury tribute with a very special episode of the series “X Minus One”.  This features not one but two!  Count ’em two adaptations of Bradbury stories.  The first is “There Will Come Soft Rains”.  Bradbury’s classic tale of nuclear holocaust.  He discusses both the story and this radio adaptation in the interview posted yesterday.  Next up his “Zero Hour”.  Another end of the world scenario.  But this time involving children.  Chilling stuff.  We love this episode.  But, given recent events, we got quite wistful when the narrator referred to Bradbury as a “young writer”.  The episode originally aired on December 5, 1956.

If you loved “Zero Hour” but were left wanting more, you can listen to a longer adaptation from the radio series “Suspense” here.

More of our tribute to Ray Bradbury.  This time instead of a story we get to hear Bradbury talking about his life and work.  He offers great advice not only about writing.  But about life itself.  This was prepared as a promotional piece for the radio series “Bradbury 13”, and it has become an episode of the series when it has been repeated.  It was recorded in late March, 1984.
