Very Entertaining

Great selection of old time radio. You can listen to this many times before getting tired of it.

Some radio shows

This is about eight shows 30 minutes long each. Feels like they cut a number of things from the shows, since Fibber McGee episode doesn't have the standard in show ad for Johnson Floor Wax, nor is there ads or intermissions in X minus one or the gangbusters episodes, as I have heard before in other collections of those episodes. So this is a good intro to golden age of radio, but there are much better collections that span the gambit of offerings.
