The CBS Radio Workshop regularly featured the works of the world’s greatest writers, including Ray Bradbury, Archibald MacLeish, William Saroyan, Lord Dunsany, and Ambrose Bierce, among others. The radio series aired from January 27, 1956, through September 22, 1957, and was a revival of the prestigious Columbia Workshop from the 1930s and 1940s.

Creator William Froug launched the series with this powerhouse two-part adaptation of Brave New World and booked author Aldous Huxley to narrate his famous novel. The Columbia Workshop radio drama was innovative in giving authors, directors, sound engineers, and composers many opportunities to experiment with the use of sound as a device for enhancing narrative. Columbia Workshop received a 1946 Peabody Award for Outstanding Entertainment in Drama.
