Hi Everyone, I found this blog that mentions a new radio show in which Mr. Lee is host of the first 50 shows?! It is hoping to air in 2009.
From the article Mr. Lee is supposed to have already recorded the shows.

If this is accurate; how wonderful!

Thanks, Helen.

Well what a great surprise this is! There really aren't enough radio shows like this these days. It will be interesting to hear the finished product.

Re: Twilight Zone Radio Dramas with Mr. Lee?!!

Hello everyone,

Very interesting news. I do enjoy listening to radio shows, and I can think of nobody better than Mr Lee to introduce the "Twilight Zone" audio dramatisations. I imagine that this will be much in the same vein as Vincent Price's "The Price of Fear" or "The Man in Black" (originally voiced by the late Valentine Dyall, Edward de Souza took on the eponymous role in modern times and the series itself was renamed as "Fear on Four"). The only hindrance I can see for those of us over across this side of the Atlantic is that the shows will be going out very late, or rather I ought to say in the early hours of the morning, taking into account the timezones difference. At least they will be made available to download, for those who wish to listen to them. Really wonderful to see Mr Lee extending his "voice work" and especially on radio, which I know from his autobiography is an area he would have liked to have worked more in. It's great to see that he's being given the opportunity of doing so. Take care everyone:

Warmest regards,

Andrés
