Old time radio: Adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s 1950 short story "Outcast of the Stars"

Back in January 1952, the radio program NBC Presents: Short Story broadcast “The Rocket,” a 30-minute adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s short story “Outcast of the Stars” (1950, variant title "The Rocket"), which was originally published in the March 1950 issue of Super Science Stories magazine. According to old time radio aficionado Bob Camardella, the adaptation is about “a poor man who runs a junkyard [and] wants nothing more in life than to travel to Mars." Enjoy!
