With the recent passing of Ray Bradbury, a man whose stories were no stranger to radio, I thought we’d hear a selection from the adaptations done by X Minus One.  This series featured eight of his stories over its run, more than any other author.

We begin with Mars Is Heaven, which first aired May 8, 1955.  Then, from August 4, 1955 we’ll hear The Veldt.  The last episode aired December 5, 1956 and features two stories; There Will Come Soft Rains and Zero Hour.
