Victor Hugo's Les Misérables (translated variously from French as The Miserable Ones, The Wretched, The Poor Ones, The Wretched Poor, The Victims) is an epic novel by French author Victor Hugo, and is among the best-known novels of the 19th century.  This classic tale follows the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean, during the period just after the French Revolution, as he seeks redemption from an unjust past by adopting the little servant girl, Cosette.  In 1937, Orson Welles wrote, produced, and directed this great seven-part adaptation for radio station WOR. Welles plays the part of Valjean as well as narrator in this wonderful, gripping "Living Book for the Ears" audio dramatization. A "must hear"!

Included in this downloadable collection are all seven half hour episodes of the 1937 dramatization of Les Misérables (in great sound quality) plus Eight PDF Listening & Discussion Guides in PDF format. As a bonus, we are also including an adaptation of "The Story of the Bishop's Candlesticks" plus an extra PDF Listening Guide for that program as well.

A Classic Collection of Dramatized Tales from the "Father of American Literature"!

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 April 21, 1910), better known by the pen name Mark Twain, was a humorist, satirist, lecturer and writer from the United States of America. Twain is most noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which has since been called the Great American Novel, and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. He is also known for his quotations. During his lifetime, Twain became a friend to presidents, artists, leading industrialists and European royalty. Twain enjoyed immense public popularity, and his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from both critics and peers. American author William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature."

In this collection we have compiled 11 classic radio dramatizations of Twain's stories -- some very well known, and others hardly known at all. We've also included a biographical story about Twain's life and career as well. All are great fun to listen to, and together offer a wonderful overview of the works of this great American writer.

Life on the Mississippi

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

The Man Who Corrupted Hadleyburg

Here's a great collection of episodes from the classic program, "You Are There", which re-create pivotal events in
European history. Modern reporters on the scene cover the story as it unfolds. Of course, these historic events
took place before radio - but the dialogue is believable and as factual as possible, and very much in character.
The sound effects, actors and the reporters "coverage" is presented in an exciting and thought-provoking way.
These programs are a great way to get a real taste of the significance of these historical
events, and what REALLY happened in European history.

Big Jon & Sparkie
"Where Have Our Little Dogs Gone?"

Big Jon and Sparkie (the elf who wishes he as a real boy) were the creations of Cincinnati radio personality Jon Arthur, who in the 1950s had a great children's program called "No School Today".

Their ongoing adventures were serialized in short daily afternoon episodes enjoyed by kids of all ages. This week we're bringing you a complete 10 episode story -  Sparkie's little dog Bunny, as well as every other dog in the neighborhood, are acting very strangely - and then begin to disappear!
