Though novels were often adapted for radio plays, short stories
seldom made it to the air in dramatized form.
In the latter days of the Golden Age of Radio, NBC ran a weekly short story dramatization called NBC Presents: Short Story. It ran for 15 months, from early 1951 to mid-1952.
Authors represented included Steinbeck and Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ray Bradbury. Hollywood's best actors appeared in the series.
This episode, Beautiful Summer at Newport, first aired on April 18, 1951.
