"He does look like Darth Vader . . . but with an afro."
Before the birth of fan radio shows with Jedi Talk or serious fan audio
dramas with Second Strike, the fan audio parody genre began (yes, even before Stormtrooper Bob). In November 1998, a man named Jay
Higgins led a small team of children and staff from the Afterschool Team Activity Club, based out of Mission Viejo, California, in
the creation of a short Star Wars audio parody, Star Wars: The Radio Play.
Its recognition is long overdue, and we at Fanworks
hope you enjoy the project as much as the staff and kids did making it.
