Aldous Huxley Narrates 'Brave New World'


I came across this Bernard Herrmann album download from the 1956 CBS Radio Workshop production of Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' with the actual radio production as narrated by Huxley himself.

It makes a nice audio CD that can be listened to on the road.

Huxley continues to be a prophetic voice that everyone should be familiar with.

  1. Dear John Q. Reader, my name is Norm...What's yours?
    (Don't ever be ashamed of your birthright...
    Remember the words of Sir Winston Churchhill, "Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing, great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.")

    Ref:"I read your column regularly, and generally agree with what you have to say, but I think you've got Barack Obama all wrong. Yes, I know, he went before AIPAC and kowtowed; he pledged to do "anything – and I mean anything" to stop Iran's nuclear program. He acts "tough" and says he's going to invade Pakistan; he gets in Russia's face. But that's all a show: you see, he has to do this stuff or else he won't get elected. Once he's safely in office, he'll do the right thing.


    John Q. Reader"

    "Once he's safely in office, he'll do the right thing."

    How long do we have to wait?


    ps: Name just one GOOD thing Obama has done for the your case, just name one-half of a GOOD thing.
