From the 1930s through the 1950s, experimental drama had a home at CBS. The Columbia Workshop was a pioneer in the evolution of broadcast technique during the pre-World War II era. The program faded out in the swell of postwar commercialism, but as the sponsor dollars fled to television in the mid-1950s, the renamed CBS Radio Workshop came back stronger than ever. Like the original, this latter-day Workshop emphasized the role of emerging technologies in radio production, and took full advantage of the new versatility made possible by tape recording. Luxuriously-edited soundscapes underlined thoughtful, provocative dramas dealing with challenging, unusual topics. The past, the present, and the future all had their turns as grist for the Workshop -- with the network's finest directors, actors, and technicians contributing to the outstanding quality of the final product.
