The Original Killer Brain in a Jar!

The original "brain in a jar" tale - Curt Siodmaks' ground-breaking cross-over SF novel "Donovan's Brain" - has not only been adapted into two pretty decent movies ("The Lady & The Monster" & of course, "Donovan's Brain") but was also adapted by the long-running radio show SUSPENSE twice as well. The first two-part version from 1944 stars Orson Welles no less, but the quality of these mp3s isn't all that great, so i've included a much tastier encode of an hour-long show from 1948. These adaptions are pretty faithful to the novel, unlike the movies, which truncate or elimate plot threads in typical Hollywood fashion.
