Welcome to Fair Pickings, where you will find 1000’s of original radio broadcasts from the 1930’s through the 1960’s available on audio cassette or compact disc for your listening pleasure.
There is today, an entire generation of people who have grown up without ever hearing a radio drama of any sort, and consequently, they are not familiar with the concept of telling a story in dramatic terms without the aid of a visual element. Radio drama was the prevalent entertainment form for most Americans for over twenty years.
One of the most important and most influential of the radio dramatic anthology series was the Lux Radio Theatre, which began in 1934, and ended in 1955, well into the television era.
That it was among radio’s finest dramatic series there can be no doubt, as Lux’s staff had the efficiency to turn out a polished program every week, and the creativity to make many of these shows brilliantly effective.
Fair Pickings has the largest collection of Lux Radio Theatre shows available: nearly 700 different broadcasts, including alphabetical listing by star, plus many complete show logs, from the 1930s through 1960s.
