Dimension X was first heard over NBC on Apr. 8, 1950 and
ran until September the 29th, 1951. Although not the first adult science fiction
radio series, Dimension X is remembered because of the quality of the
shows. Some of the writers whose works were dramatized
were Ray Bradbury, Robert Block, Robert A. Heinlein, Isaac Asimov and
These stories were adapted for radio by in-house script writer
George Lefferts. Cast regulars were Joe Desantos, Wendell Holmes,
Santos Ortega, Joseph Julian, Jan Minor, Roger Decovan, John Gibson,
Ralph Bell, and many others. The narrator was Norman Rose.
This show dramatized the work
of such young writers as Ray Bradbury, Robert (Psycho) Bloch, Robert Heinlein,
Isaac Asimov, and Kurt Vonnegut. In-house script writer was Ernest Kinoy, who
adapted the master works and contributed occasional storied of his own.
It was one of the first shows to be recorded on tape. This
was so new that one show, "Mars is Heaven", had to be re-recorded
3 times because the engineer kept erasing the tape while editing it.
Many of the scripts for DIMENSION X were used in its successor,
X MINUS ONE, which ran Apr. 24, 1955 through Jan. 9, 1958. Below
