Tales of Tomorrow was a short-lived radio show wherein short
stories from Galaxy science fiction magazine were adapted into
half-hour radio dramas.
Host of the series was the famous "Raymond" - Raymond Edward Johnson. The series started on ABC and then moved to CBS. It was on the air from New Year's Day to April 9, 1953.
Galaxy editor H.L. Gold, who also wrote for the magazine, bought stories that had a psychological, sociological, or satirical bend, rather than the "earth vs. aliens" stories that were popular in other magazines.
This story, Gold's own The Old Die Rich, appeared in the March 1953 issue of Galaxy, and was broadcast on Tales of Tomorrow on March 26, 1953.
