SCIFI.radio is pleased to be able to present the remarkable science fiction radio series X Minus 1. You can tune in Fridays and Saturdays at 9:30PM Pacific time to hear the episodes, presented in their original broadcast order.
Initially a revival of NBC’s Dimension X (1950–51), the first 15 episodes of X Minus One were new versions of Dimension X episodes, but the remainder were adaptations by NBC staff writers, including Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts, of newly published science fiction stories by leading writers in the field, including Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, Robert A. Heinlein, Frederik Pohl and Theodore Sturgeon, along with some original scripts by Kinoy and Lefferts. The series aired between 1955 and 1958. There were 126 episodes.
Included in the series were adaptations of Robert Sheckley‘s “Skulking Permit,” Bradbury’s “Mars Is Heaven,” Robert Heinlein’s “Universe“, and “The Green Hills of Earth“, ” Frederick Pohl’s “The Tunnel under the World,” J. T. McIntosh’s “Hallucination Orbit,” Fritz Leiber’s “A Pail of Air” and George Lefferts’ “The Parade.”
You can see the entire episode guide on our new show page dedicated to it. It’s a lot of work entering in the scheduled air dates for all those shows, and we’re not finished with that part of it yet, but we decided not to wait – the first episode airs Thanksgiving Day!
We hope you will enjoy this classic series. It will have a home on SCIFI.radio for a long time to come.
