The age of classic radio was a time of innovation and experimentation, especially in terms of radio drama. A program that took the best of what had come before it and succeeded even further in production, performance, and storytelling actually debuted at the end of Radio’s golden age. A direct descendant of the Columbia Workshop, CBS Radio Workshop not only continued to push boundaries in terms of utilizing story, music, voice, and more in exciting, modern ways, it broke new ground in radio drama, from having author Aldous Huxley narrate the adaptation of his Brave New World for the show’s debut to producing an interview with William Shakespeare to turning a stirring folk ballad into a mix of rhyme. With a performance by William Conrad in The Legend of Jimmy Blue Eyes, the CBS Radio Workshop set the standard for modern audio drama. The man behind CBS Radio Workshop, which debuted in 1956, was William Froug.
