Aldous Huxley Reads Dramatized Version of Brave New World

We posted this long ago, and we’re doing it again because it’s just too good — too good to collect digital dust.

The CBS Radio Workshop was an “experimental dramatic radio anthology series” that aired between 1956 and 1957. And it premiered with a two-part adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s now classic 1932 novel, Brave New World. Huxley himself introduced and narrated the program, and now this classic radio drama has resurfaced online. You can listen to Part 1 here:

and Part 2 here

Or find the mp3s housed in our collection of Free Audio Books. For a little more vintage radio, don’t miss this collection of recordings from Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre on the Air.

    Wow this is incredible- thanks!  I was introduced to Huxley’s work through my High School
    teacher in a very rural town.  It was
    controversial for her to teach such works as A Brave New World but these are
    very powerful and insightful works.  Such
    literature is very important to society along with books like 1984 and A
    Clockwork Orange which are frequently banned.
