The CBS Radio Workshop aired from January 27, 1956, through September 22, 1957, and was a revival of the prestigious Columbia Workshop which aired from 1936 to 1943. Creator William Froug launched the series with the powerhouse two-part adaptation of Brave New World and booked author Aldous Huxley to narrate his famous novel. “We’ll never get a sponsor anyway,” CBS vice president Howard Barnes explained to Time, “so we might as well try anything.” The CBS Workshop regularly featured the works of the world’s greatest writers including Ray Bradbury, Archibald MacLeish, William Saroyan, Aldous Huxley, Lord Dunsany, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, Thomas Wolfe and Ambrose Bierce. Music was composed by Bernard Herrman, Jerry Goldsmith and others.

About the Narrator

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
