Science fiction author Ray Bradbury passed away yesterday at 91.
Some of Bradbury's best known works, including Farenheit 451 & The Martian Chronicles, have been adapted for television and/or the movies, allowing Bradbury the status of becoming a cultural icon in his field. In 1985, Bradbury made the move to television himself, as the host of an HBO anthology series that bore his name. Reruns of Ray Bradbury Theatre would later air on USA Network after its pay-cable run ended.
Musical director John Massari composed the theme for Ray Bradbury Theatre, and a YouTube channel bearing Massari's name uploaded the open thus......
As host, Bradbury was cordial and pleasant. I don't think he ever acted in any of the episodes aside from being host.
Rest in peace, Ray. You will be missed.
