Columbia Workshop
Volume 2
 
 
 
An often-overlooked aspect of old time radio, overshadowed frequently by the stories told on the shows and the stars that performed them, was the fact that a crucial part of the medium was sound. Columbia Workshop, Volume 2 from Radio Archives features a program that not only paid attention to sound, but advanced how it was used on other programs then and now.
 
Developed in 1936, Columbia Workshop was truly an experiment in radio. Developed by engineer turned director Irving Reis, the purpose of the program was to take advantage of all that network radio, still only ten years old, had to offer. Believing that ‘production, not the play, was the thing’ according to a story in Time in July 1939, Reis worked to make sure that Columbia Workshop was rich with music, sound, and innovative techniques setting it apart from other programs.
 
Reis produced some cutting edge episodes, including a noise filled tour down Broadway light on story, but heavy with sounds of the street that told its tale well. The crew also tried their hand at expanding what could be done on air, such as using nine actors to perform 34 different characters in 30 minutes consisting of 22 individual scenes. These and multiple other innovations mark Columbia Workshop as a classic radio program, a true vehicle of experimentation that advanced the medium in multiple ways.
 
Listen as history is literally made on Columbia Workshop, Volume 2, restored to the best audio quality possible by Radio Archives! Available now for!
