Dandelion Wine is one of those nostalgic stories that attempt to summon a true memory of childhood. Ray Bradbury is one of few authors with the magic to pull it off. This production is a full cast reading with music and sound effects. A production like this can come to grief in any number of ways, but this one works well. The boy playing the role of 12 year old Douglas Spalding is just right. It's not a replacement for reading the book, but if you can enter into the spirit of the story, I think you will love this recording. Green light.

The script for this audio drama was written by Ray Bradbury hisself. After hearing this production of his script by The Colonial Radio Theater, Ray sent them an email saying, "Dear Jerry, I've just played for the second time your production of Dandelion Wine and its fabulous. I'm so very proud of it, in fact it made me weep. In your own way you've told me that I have a chance of part of me living beyond the day that I leave this Earth. This production is simply incredible. I can hardly wait to see what you do with Something Wicked This Way Comes. I know it will be fantastic. Please thank everyone involved and let them know that they moved Ray Bradbury to believe in himself. God bless and happy new year, Ray."
