In 1981, NPR produced a series of radio dramas, expanding the plot from the original Star Wars. Some of the regulars voiced their parts (Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker) and some newcomers joined the radio cast (Perry King as Han Solo). In this episode, Luke and Ben Kenobi contract the services of the Millennium Falcon, "which made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs."
