One thought to “Radio Drama Revival: Bradbury 13: A Sound Of Thunder”

  1. Thanks for the feature! I should mention, it’s really exciting that all of these shows are now available as high-quality MP3 downloads… My second favorite on the collection is “The Veldt,” which was actually originally done in the OTR days and seems flat and lifeless compared to McDonough’s stunning sound design and fresh adaptation. Highly recommended:
