"A Logic Named Joe"
- "A Logic Named Joe" is a science fiction short story by Murray Leinster that was first published in the March 1946 issue of Astounding Science Fiction.
- The script of the story was used on Dimension X on July 1, 1950.
- The year is 1974 and the Logic machine was working so well that life was pretty easy for repairman Frank Caldwell, until on the fatal day of August 3rd when the Logic suddenly began doing everything for their users - and doing it far too well!
- As you listen to the story, think about our modern world and our own dependence on computer technology. A pretty prescient warning!
"Future Eye" (1976)
From the 30th century a temporal investigator, John Quinn is sent back in time to the year 1976 with a crucial mission: to retrieve a data crystal which contains a complete account of world history until 2976. It's a race against time to retrieve the data crystal technology before someone learns about future history which could have disastrous consequences for the future.
Quinn finds himself cast back in time on an Earth where humanity has managed to almost destroy itself and where the USA is under Japanese occupation having lost World War II. Matters become more complicated due to the fact that the data crystal has transmitted its information into 100 copies of an Almanac about to be sold to the public!
The Green Hills of Earth
"The Green Hills Of Earth" was written by Robert A. Heinlein that originally appeared in The Saturday Evening Post [February 8, 1947]. The script was previously used on "Dimension X" radio show on June 10, 1950 and December 24, 1950. It also appeared on the July 7, 1955, broadcast of the NBC Radio Network program “X Minus One.” It is a story about Reisling, a blind balladeer and Woody Guthrie-like folksinger of the spaceways: a story “found in the memories of the old-time space men, the pioneers who pushed the thundering old fashioned rockets to the far strange ports that are our common place heritage - these men know the true story of Riesling.”
