Series Synopsis: The Columbia Workshop was the father of experimental radio drama at CBS. The CBS Radio Workshop was its final incarnation, at its best equaling (and some believe surpassing) the original role model. The old show had established a high mark in radio history. Even in its failures it was interesting—the people behind it seemed to know that to be good an artist must have the freedom to be bad. Anything was fair game, and The CBS Radio Workshop made full use of the audio techniques pioneered by its predecessor and added a few of its own.
