Star Trek Radio Special from 1982

Thanks to TrekMovie's John Tenuto, here is a piece of Star Trek history from 1982. The hour long radio special called "The Voyage of Star Trek" was created to promote the release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. The special ran with a then popular radio network called "The Source". The special had interviews with all the main movie cast members, the directory Nicholas Meyer, and more as they talked about the movie, the popularity of Star Trek and their characters. The recording is a combination of most of the material put together for the special including various promotional recordings so the first seven or so minutes might seem repetitive. TrekMovie has more details here. In a weird way it shows the more things change (technology) the more things stay the same (promoting movie releases).
