1.0 out of 5 stars Inferior Quality March 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
I went in to this purchase skeptical and I wasn't disappointed. While the quantity of programs is staggering - the quality is comparable to listening to these recordings on old scratched vinyl with a knitting needle taped to a cow horn. I would not recommend the purchase of this item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to have January 24, 2009
Verified Purchase
I gave this a 5 star rating becouse i love being able to hear programs like this that are very rarly aired on media broadcasts. Jack Benney is great and it would be tragic if this material was lost. The audio quality is not up to todays standards but what can be expected from programs of that time period.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Benny collection February 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
This collection of shows on DVD is huge- over 200 shows, and the audio quality is very good, considering the source. But- I can only get it to play in my computer or DVD player, it will not play in any portable MP3 player I have- meaning it will not play in the car. It is actually a DVD, not an MP3. If you are in Los Angeles, some of the shows were recorded at the Pasadena Playhouse, which closed just this week.

5.0 out of 5 stars 460 hours of historical fun January 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
460 hours, 39 minutes and 48 seconds to be precise. I don't know if this is EVERY Jack Benny radio show but there's enough to satisfy you. For example, there are 43 1941 shows. Did JB skip 9 weeks that year or are their a few shows missing? Don't know.

Disc includes things other than JB's radio show. For example, there are a couple of Tonight show appearances from the 1970s (audio only)

Besides the entertaining show you also get the interesting perspective of the commercials - a 1934 jello ad is something different!

Quality: Mixed. The MP3s have a very low bitrate but that's ok considering the source material. Some of shows have noise (I recognized the swooshing of a warped record on one file) but they're listenable. Others are of good quality.

These are mp3 files burned to a DVD. You'll have to copy them to a computer, Ipod, cellphone or something like that to listen to them unless your dvd player plays mp3s.
