I am a child of the OT, but until today I had never listened to the Original Radio Drama. I understand that it was the most popular broadcast on NPR ever. Even so, as a child I don't suppose I could of sat still long enough to listen to the whole thing. Never the less I have listened to the first part of it today. I must say that it's something else. Entertaining for sure. It's a little off from the movie. It starts on Tatooine with Luke and some of his friends. We learn a bit more about Luke and his Life on Tatooine. Then we learn a bit more about Liea and how she got into the Rebellion. I don't know if this counts as "official cannon" since someone wrote it other than GL, but its still Star Wars, and its still good. Especially for free. I checked it out at my local public library. Any library with a decent audio/visual section should have it. So, like Lavare Burton and Reading Rainbow "For more information on this book and more like it, check your local library."
