Sound quality not Super...man.
Very old and dated. Audio very tinny.
Would only appeal to fans of the original.
A Good Listen
Short and to the point. I particularly liked the old commercials contained in the broadcast.

Cute, with a misleading title. It turns out that the FLYING MONSTER, is a rocket ship. An explosion is heard, but no one even sees the rocket ship and I am not sure that the word MONSTER is even used anywhere in the story.
HISTORY IS JUST A BUNCH OF NEWSPAPERS
It was fun hearing the old theme music , which is the same as was heard on the TV show. Like other reviewers I also like hearing the old commercials, which were all from the same company. If you liked the show, they had a new episode, three days a week.
