Looking for LPs (albums) of bradbury stories.

Anyone have information about where I can get Bradbury stories on records or LPs? Does anyone have any they want to part with? I am a teacher who wishes to use this medium as part of my literacy instruction.

Besides the audio recordings read by Bradbury himself and the "Bradbury 13" and other radio plays, Burgess Meredith and Leonard Nimoy DEFINITELY recorded readings of Bradbury stories. Copies are probably easily obtained at online auctions such as eBay.

Wow, I'm re-opening a thread from over five years ago...

To report that someone has posted MP3s of the Burgess Meredith reads Bradbury LP. That someone is Zombie Astronaut, who always has weird and wonderful old radio stuff on his site.

Here's a direct link to Burgess:

And Zombie's home page is here:

hmm, here's an old time radio show, Radio City Playhouse, that shows Ray as one of the writers. Wonder which episodes are his? The mp3 downloads are free.

steven, if you have acccess to a cassette player, there was a four cassette boxed set released around 1985 called RAY BRADBURY HIMSELF READS 19 COMPLETE STORIES on the Audio Editions label. While it is out of print, new and used copies of this set of cassettes can still be found on amazon.com: just type in "Bradbury Reads Bradbury" as a search term. This set of cassettes was in turn a re-issue of a series of six LP's called BRADBURY READS BRADBURY, released on LP in the 1970's by Listening Library, Inc. Unfortunately, those six LP's are rare and expensive collector's items, and more difficult to find than the cassettes. I do not believe these readings By Ray Bradbury have been released yet on CD, although there is a boxed set of CD's currently available which has him reading his novel FAHRENHEIT 451. Good hunting!

fanboy, the Bradbury episodes are "The Wind" and "The Lake". The scripts are actually by Harry W. Junkin, based on the Bradbury stories.

"The Lake" isn't listedon that web page, because it's part of an episode entitled "Duet".

Everyone, for info on Bradbury audio stuff (radio and commercial recordings) check out my site, specifically this page.

Not sure if this has been posted before. The album "Now, Listen!" from DJ Food & DK has a track with Leonard Nimoy performing Marionettes Inc. I'm guessing that the Nimoy part was sampled from a previous recording but I'm not sure.

DJ Food -Marionettes Inc.

Thanks. Wasn't aware of this LP. It would be interesting to listen to the full recording, but it seems destined to remain part of the Vinyl Museum. Hopefully, it will be made available in the future as a CD or MP3 file.
