"[X Minus One] brought current SF to radio, providing adaptations of many excellent new stories and thus allowing the public to appreciate the best science fiction available at the time." (Michael Ashley, The Time Machines: The Story of the Science-Fiction Pulp Magazines)
An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
Not this story, the only sci fi in it was the fact the US banned cars and installed people movers. Mostly it was a story of union busting by portraying the union members as fanatics who would destroy what they couldn't control.
Swan Song by Robert McCammon.
This was not a narration but theatrical production for a 1950's radio play. I would definitely listen to another story from this show.
I would hope this one would never be made into a movie. Disappointing. I could see Mel Gibson play the Union buster, the head of the Engineers Union played by Christopher Walken, the visitor from another nation could be played by Keanu Reeves. The Union buster's wife could be played by anyone. Small part. Bad storyline, boring movie.
"Nothing to see here, move along."
This short story predicted urban sprawl, and our dependence on the technology that makes it possible. This radio production is very faithful to the original source material, and very well done.
