Hosted by Norman Rose (12 half-hour episodes on 6 CDs in a collector case)  “Dimension X” was one of radio’s first adult science-fiction series and made its mark by adapting short stories by acknowledged masters in the field, including: Isaac Asimov, Robert Bloch, Ray Bradbury, Fredric Brown, Robert. A. Heinlein, Clifford D. Simak, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. and William Tenn.  The original stories were adapted by scriptwriters, Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts, who also contributed their own original scripts. At the start of every broadcast, host Norman Rose promised us “adventures in time and space, told in future tense!”  You knew you were about to be transported from your everyday existence to somewhere completely different … maybe even a distant planet. Radio was a fertile medium for science fiction. It was easy to visit other planets, interact with aliens or fly in a rocket ship simply by using your imagination. “Dimension X” debuted April 8th, 1950 and completed its run September 29th, 1951 including a 5-month hiatus in the middle.
