Bradbury 13 news? And a Bradbury documentary.

A company called Strategicom have contacted me, saying that they are working with Mike McDonough on licensing of Bradbury 13. It sounds as if moves are afoot - finally - to get this classic piece of radio drama officially re-released.

As I have blogged previously, Bradbury 13 (most of it, anyway) was once released on cassette, but a CD or official download version has never appeared. I hope this is now about to happen. Watch this space!


Meanwhile, I spotted a new Bradbury documentary DVD on Amazon. Ray Bradbury: Dancing Among the Muses sounds, from a customer review, a rather cheap affair. However, the producers' web page for the DVD makes it seem rather more professional. They have a trailer online (which friend Nard also found on YouTube), which includes Ray telling the familiar Mr Electrico tale. This might be worth further investigation...

Hello Phil!
This is Victor Gates from Vix Audio Show. When AOL shut down their web sites last October, my BLOG disappeared. I've finally gotten around to re-posting everything on the NING web service. Vix Audio Show #5 had the interview with Bradbury 13's Mike McDonough and the sound clips from A Sound of Thunder. The new link is-

There are also many other MP3 files I've posted there that may be of interest to your readers.
Thanks-
Victor
