Classic Sci-Fi Radio Play



  • Welcome to the "Classic Sci-Fi Radio Play" page.
  • Every week or so a different science-fiction themed radio play will be featured for your enjoyment.
  • This is food for the imagination and was a popular form of entertainment before the widespread use of television.
  • Sit back, relax and enjoy………..


Here we have for your consideration two radio plays featuring astronauts whose missions take them on very different paths toward very different fates…..




The Cave Of Night 
(X Minus One -1956)

A U.S. astronaut is stuck in space, marooned forever to travel through the “cave of night” with no way of getting back down to earth.




The Parallel 
(“The Twilight Zone” radio series)

“In the vernacular of space, this is T minus one hour. Sixty minutes before a human being named Major Robert Gaines is lifted off from the Mother Earth and rocketed into the sky, farther and longer than any man ahead of him. Call this one of the first faltering steps of man to sever the umbilical cord of gravity and stretch out a fingertip toward an unknown. Shortly, we'll join this astronaut named Gaines and embark on an adventure, because the environs overhead—the stars, the sky, the infinite space—are all part of a vast question mark known as the Twilight Zone.”
