We do a lot of traveling and trying to keep your car radio on a station is not easy. However we have become addicted to the Old Time Radio Broadcasts. We have listened to broadcast going back to the 20's, 30's, 40's, and 50's. These CD's are so interesting and entertaining. To be able to listen to Burns and Allen, Jack Benny, and Abbot & Costello is great. Not to overlook the mystery series, The Whistler, The Green Hornet, Boston Blackie. And don't forget the westerns...Try them you'll like them and they do make your trip easier on you.

These are not the best of the best radio dramas. I ordered them to use in a communications class on radio production but found most of the recordings the least desirable and not up to the production standards of the best classics. Too little good radio for too much money.

I knocked of 1 star NOT for the product, but for the way the item was packed for shipping. It was inside a bubble envelope that only covered half of it and then put in box. The cardboard cd case was smashed on one side, but it was too close to christmas to hassle with a return.

The product, however, was wonderful! My grandpa immediately put it in and we listened to old radio shows together on Christmas Eve. The shows were very funny and heartwarming, I will definitely recommend this product and other Old Time Radio Shows products

The Comedies were very good and entertaining and it was good to hear the old commericals on some of them. The Crime Shows and Space Shows were a bit hard to follow.

some of the recordings are of good quality radio theater but many in this collection are of little notable shows,poorly written and radio actors that were marginal.I have purchased other radio air checks and recording of enjoyable vintage radio this does not compare.Buyer be careful.

The residents at our assisted living facility love the radio shows! They are also just the right length for our Old-Time Radio activity.

This was purchased for a youth boating program We often find ourselves out at sea, far from internet, TV, etc.These CD's provide the perfect evening entertainment. I was a little concerned that todays tech savy teenagers would find it boring, but they actually really like it and look forward to the evening radio program! The challenge was getting them to listen to the first one, but when they did they really enjoyed it and now they're hooked! It is very appropriate for all ages.
This was a good buy and i do recomend it. The only reason that I'm not giving it 5 stars is because not every show is great, though the majority are.
In summary: Good price, good product. entertaining and enjoyable for all!
