The Star Wars series is still revolutionary radio drama.
I was the Executive Producer of the original 13-episode STAR WARS radio series, created in association with National Public Radio, Lucasfilm, and the BBC. I conceived the concept of the series in 1978 as a way to demonstrate how I thought radio drama should be produced in America. I had the odd -- and looking back now -- revolutionary idea that radio drama was a highly visual medium, not a verbal "talking heads" affair.
Why STAR WARS for this experiment? I was looking for a subject that could attract a large audience for radio drama again, like the audiences that listened as I did when I was very young to THE SHADOW, SUSPENSE, THE GREEN HORNET and other great radio series of the 1940's. The stunning first STAR WARS film had just been released and I was amazed by it from the opening credits on.
John Houseman, the actor and producer, set me thinking in the direction that lead eventually to the "force" and all that went with it. I had asked him how I could attract a large audience again for radio drama. He thought for a minute and said, "Create a scandal." And what better way to create a scandal that to announce that we would adapt the most visual Hollywood film ever made for -- of all things -- radio.
In radio drama, visual images and action are created by sound effects. Done well, there's no need for dialogue to tell us what's happening. Lucasfilm had given us use of all the sound effects created for the film. So I insisted that nearly every scene have underneath it the sound or ambience of all the movement and action taking place. This was not an idea that everybody loved at first sight, because it was so different from how contemporary radio drama was being produced. But the results told the tale: after it premiered in 1981, the original 13-episode series was credited with raising the audience for National Public Radio stations by 40 per cent. After that, the series was broadcast by public radio systems in Canada and Australia, and everywhere else by the BBC World Service.
The first thirteen episodes cover the time period of the original film's story with material drawn from the screenplay, the novelization, and original material created specifically for the radio series. Luke and C3PO are played by the stars who created those characters in the film.

Important about the COLLECTOR'S EDITION: it contains the following special tracks: comments from four of the principals, the speederbike scene without sound or music added, then with all the effects, for comparision, two public radio membership spots by Tony Daniels (C3PO), and the touching "Message for Brian." For me, "Message for Brian" was worth the extra all by itself. (Brian Daley, the writer, was ill with pancreatic cancer when this was recorded, and the cast recorded this "get-well card" for him, only to find that he died within 24 hours of the completion of the recording sessions.)
Unfortunately, Brian never got to hear this message. But the radio dramas he created, which are now dedicated to him, are a great monument to his efforts. I would recommend this set to anyone who is a real fan of the Star Wars universe.

Zur Info, diese Box gibt es in 2 Ausführungen, einmal die "Normale" wie ich sie auch habe, und einmal die streng lim. Box mit einer CD mehr. Man muss selbst entscheiden, ob diese Bonus CD den wesentlich höheren Preis wert ist, mir reicht die normale Box jedenfalls sehr und ich freue mich, nach fast 14 Jahren Suche, diese endlich gefunden zu haben!
