It is nice to still be able to learn things about STAR WARS, decades after the movies' releases.

I learnt today that Brock Peters did the voice of Darth Vader in some STAR WARS radio adaptations. I wasn't even aware STAR WARS had had radio adaptations, let alone that Peters had voiced Vader.

I am familiar with Peters' work elsewhere, so it would have been nice to have known all this years ago. Maybe one day I'll have the opportunity to hear his work as Vader.

Ah, the radio play. Very fond memories of listening to that at school on a small transistor radio during the school lunch break.

I had all these on old tapes that I used to listen to quite a bit. Humble Bundle did a deal a year or so ago that had all three series on digital.

Another casting difference was Perry King as Han Solo.

Adam Arkin as the Fixer. I listened to the original weekly broadcast on NPR. There is a limited edition CD set with images printed on the CDs. It is a very collectible way to own the series.

on the Graham Norton Show last week,and did a little
impression!
