May the 4th be with you, Radio Nerd.
A few years after 'Star Wars' was released, NPR decided to try and create a 'Star Wars' radio drama, and they did.
Here's a 're-release' of the original 14 hour radio drama. Click HERE to listen now.
-George Lucas sold the radio rights, original music and sfx for $1 so NRP could create this series.
-NPR co-produced this series with the BBC (they had more experience with radio dramas)
-The series was on the air from 1981-1996
