The Apple Seed, BYU Radio, July 10, 2014, featuring "Dark They Were and Golden-Eyed" by Ray Bradbury, and an interview with Bradbury 13 producer Michael McDonough
Ray Bradbury is the world’s greatest science fiction writer. Some may argue, including Ray himself, that he writes fantasy rather than science fiction. He once said that Fahrenheit 451 was his only true science fiction work. His stories may tell us very little about science, but a great deal about the netherworld of imagination buried deep within all of us. In addition to over 1000 short stories, several novels and a handful of plays; Ray Bradbury has written poetry and scenarios. He adapted the novel Moby Dick for the movies, and has seen several of his own stories made into motion pictures, as well as television radio shows. His writing has appeared in nearly every American magazine publishing quality fiction, and in over 100 anthologies of short stories.
Bradbury 13 was a series of radio adaptations of Ray Bradbury stories. The series was created by Michael McDonough, who also adapted the stories, directed and produced the programs. Bradbury 13 aired nationally on NPR Playhouse on over 250 radio stations. Ray Bradbury introduced each episode, and Paul Frees acted as the announcer of each of the thirteen stories. Original music was composed by Roger Hoffmann and Greg Hansen. Bradbury 13 has achieved a cult status with many fans over the years, especially with those who enjoy radio drama. The series won a Peabody Award and two Gold Cindy awards. (Wikipedia)
