They actually did radio dramas of all three episodes of the original trilogy. New Hope and Empire are pretty good, Return of the Jedi not so much, I think they got a greatly reduced budget, so it is very short.
The first two though are quite good. There is a lot of background and additional "scenes" such as Vader interrogating Leah on the Death Star for the location of the Rebel Base, and some of the back story about how the Rebels learned of the Death Star, and subsequently Leah got the mission to pick up the plans, and Obi Wan....
Of course, YMMV
