Pilot Ward, and Artoo listen to the Star Wars Radio Drama 1981

A great photo! Ward remembers “This is how I listened to the NPR Radio Drama of A New Hope. We had a floor unit stereo hi-fi (behind R2) which I turned up loud, and then R2 was positioned behind me, under our piano bench and a chair making up a makeshift X-wing cockpit. I’m wearing my Dad’s one-piece, zip-up painting coveralls and a football helmet for my X-wing flight suit and helmet.”
