Columbia Workshop
Volume 3
 
 
Conceived originally as a program to push the boundaries of network radio, Columbia Workshop became a stage for innovation in production, but also a voice for writers and actors, a voice that America listened to and can now be heard on Columbia Workshop, Volume 3 from Radio Archives.
 
Although it debuted in 1936, Columbia Workshop found its true stride in 1937 both as an innovator in radio production, but also in the quality of work it was producing. Overcoming a belief that production was more important than the play, Columbia Workshop began focusing on turning quality scripts into quality episodes. Being a CBS show, the program definitely had access to directors and writers to do just that.
 
In 1937, Columbia Workshop presented The Fall of the City by Archibald MacLeish. Both the extremely intricate production of this program as well as its message rung true with listeners and proved that radio drama could indeed be effective and brought something different than its stage and film counterparts. From this point forward, Columbia Workshop became a platform for socially conscious productions and led to the success of one of radio’s greatest writers, Norman Corwin.
 
CBS received over 7,000 plays a year while Columbia Workshop was in production. This meant that nearly every director at least once was involved with this program, contributing to the innovations as well as the groundbreaking plays that were featured every week. Columbia Workshop, Volume 3 from Radio Archives collects classic episodes of this truly historic program and is now available in Sparkling audio quality!
