Norman Corwin, besides being one of Ray's oldest and dearest friends (Ray credits Corwin with encouraging Ray to travel to New York on the journey that resulted in the sale of THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES to Doubleday), is one of the most influential writers, producers and directors in the history of modern radio. And according to his website, Mr. Corwin's father lived to be 112! (Talk about good genes!) I remember as a college student, I was a fan of the composer Bernard Herrmann and bought an LP containing Mr. Corwin's 1945 radio show, ON A NOTE OF TRIUMPH, a show celebrating VE day for which Mr. Herrmann write the music. I bought the album for the score, but after listening to the show written by Mr. Corwin I became a huge fan of his as well. Here is a link to the website devoted to this remarkable gentleman:

Norman's big-brother is still kicking at 106.

(No male, on either side of my family, has yet to survive to 60. I'd better start getting my affairs in order.)

Little-known fact: Bradbury originally wrote Leviathan '99 as a radio drama with the intention that Corwin should direct it. Initially this was to be for NBC radio, subsequently for BBC radio.

As things turned out, Corwin didn't get to direct the BBC version (the job went to H.B.Fortuin instead).

And Lev '99 went on to become a stage play, an opera and a novella!

There's more on the history of Lev '99 here.

Incidentally, I envy anyone who is able to attend this CART event! I hope they record the performance and release it commercially. Previous productions (full catalogue here) include several very good Bradbury adaptations.

John, Thanks so very much for all your kindness Mr. B 's fans and friends. Reading the wonderful emails and especially SEEING an assortment of my Friend via photos at various functions brings back warm memories. Give him a hug from me won't you?

If anybody is going to the Festival of Books please look me up. I'll be in and around booth 635 (Vagabond Books) some time by 11:47 a.m. Weather permitting, I'll have on a black sport coat with a dragon lapel pin over a grey dress shirt.

Here is the best quote I heard today at the Festival of Books. M.G. Lord (look her up) introduced Ray to the lecture audience and she said, "We all know at what temperature paper burns but at what temperature does a Kendle melt?"

Here is a reminder about today's ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME event. I know of a few board members who are flying in from across the country to attend. If you are one of them please make sure to say howdy.
