Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Daley Wishes- More Star Wars Audio Drama

an1-ff-001I don’t know about you. But the thought that the new Star Wars movies could produce more NPR Star Wars audio drama makes me more excited than even for the release of the next installment- Rogue One.

For many of us who held on to the flame of radio drama in those twilight years, the NPR Star Wars written by Brian Daley┬áset flame to our imaginations exactly what a serialized version of a story could do. Forget, the modern podcast serials. Star Wars the Radio Drama stretched the original tale to tell all the stories that George Lucas couldn’t fit into a two hour feature. As this Hollywood Reporter article clarifies┬áthe extended tales tells us much more about the upcoming movie “Rogue One” than the original trilogy let slip.

I admit that I have dreams that I can be part of that team. I get a knock on my door and it’s J.J. Abrams.

“Jack,” he says. “I need you to make forty episodes- ten for each movie.” and we get in the Millennium Falcon and make our way to hidden satellite where they keep a young and rejuvinated Orson Welles, William Conrad, Vincent Price, Jack Benny, and Arch Obeler.

Hey, I’m in audio drama. I have an active fantasy life!
