Episode 174 – Norman Corwin’s Curse of 589

This week we continue our celebration of Norman Corwin, audio luminary, poet laureate of radio.

We skip ahead from the Golden Age of Radio to recent memory – a series he ran sponsored by NPR called “More by Corwin.” This was all produced live with celebrity actors including, no joke, William Shatner!

Fun stuff. Enjoy this delightful tale, “The Curse of 589″ about the most classic conflict – science and magical creatures.

    What a delightful little discovery… a recent Norman Corwin production. Also so cool to hear Shatner return to radio drama. Dave and Fly appreciate it much RDR.

    Thanks David. There are a few more modern Corwin shows out there, if you’re interested contact me (email on this site) and I can provide them directly or hook you up with Richard Fish, who’s a Corwin historian, of sorts. William Shatner and Norman Corwin! Not a bad pair, not bad at all…
