Karen Blixen ~ Isak Dinesen (1885-1962)
The Baroness Karen Blixen, later known as the writer Isak Dinesen, lived on a coffee plantation in the highlands of Kenya for eighteen years, beginning in 1913. In 1931, after losing her farm to bankruptcy and her lover in a tragic plane crash, she left Africa for her native Denmark, never to return.  But in the succeeding years, between her brillian books of short fiction, she published two memoirs and a volume of letters about her African experience. These works, especially Out of Africa, are classics of descriptive prose -- no other writer has portrayed the African landscape in all its variety and moods, the wild animals, and the native peoples with such vividness, passion and acuity.

Edgar Rice Burroughs introduced readers to Tarzan for the first time in 1912 October issue of All Story Magazine. A classic tale of adventure, Tarzan is a timeless legend and remains one of the most recognized literary characters to this day.

After making his radio debut in 1932, this popular tale of an orphan child raised by apes in the jungle had critics cheering it as, "the most fascinating and colorful radio program they had ever heard." By incorporating both sound and his audience's imagination, Edgar Rice Burroughs was able to take his Tarzan classic to a new level that would capture the fascination of all who listened. 

Enjoy the 18 episodes that marked the beginning of this classic radio epic and be sure to listen for Burroughs' own daughter as Tarzan's love interest Jane.
