CBS Radio Workshop
Volume 1

The Age of Classic Radio was a time of innovation and experimentation, especially in terms of radio drama. A program that took the best of what had come before it and succeeded even further in production, performance, and storytelling actually debuted at the end of Radio’s Golden Age. This tour de force of radio drama can now be enjoyed in CBS Radio Workshop, Volume 1.

A direct descendant of the Columbia Workshop, CBS Radio Workshop not only continued to push boundaries in terms of utilizing story, music, voice and more in exciting, modern ways, it broke new ground in radio drama. From having author Aldous Huxley narrate the adaptation of his Brave New World for the show’s debut to producing an interview with William Shakespeare to turning a stirring folk ballad into a mix of rhyme and performance by William Conrad in The Legend of Jimmy Blue Eyes, the CBS Radio Workshop set the standard for modern audio drama.

The man behind CBS Radio Workshop, which debuted in 1956, was William Froug. Inspired directly by the work of Norman Corwin on the original Columbia Workshop, Froug put all the pieces together to produce not only a great radio program, but shows that would inspire and move its audience as well as its cast and crew.

Blending sound effects with story, music with voice, and quality with substance, the first twelve episodes on CBS Radio Workshop, Volume 1 shows how boundless storytelling can be with audio drama.
