The Magic of Radio Dramas

22 May

At first glance it may not seem like the subject of radio dramas fits into the theme of the ‘booklearned’ theme of this blog.  But so many radio dramas are really dramatized versions of books.  In many ways, they can be better than the film version of a good classic. It involves the imagination in an intimate and personal way, stories come alive, and it’s a great way to spend an evening with your family.  Since this blog will also be taking on a bit of an audio stint, I see fit to add reviews of and links to good radio dramas.  It’s all in the wonderful realm of story!

Off the top of my head, here are some great sources for audio dramatizations of books:
