A Special Broadcast of Aldous Huxley's A Brave New World on Tom Needham's The Sounds of Film

8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Tune into a special edition of Tom Needham's The Sounds of Film on Thursday at 8 PM on WUSB for a rare broadcast of A Brave New World read by the author, Aldous Huxley. The production features original music by Hollywood legend Bernard Herrmann. The novel was published in 1932 and predicted many developments in reproductive technology, psychological manipulation and conditioning, and the wide-spread use of anti-depressants. A Brave New World warns us that even a democracy has a good chance of turning into a totalitarian state if people become too complacent with their lives.

The show will also feature an exclusive interview with Robert Scheer, the editor in chief of the website Truthdig. And it will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Long Island Music Hall of Fame inductee, Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant by playing his music featured in the the 1969 film directed by Arthur Penn.
