THE 60 GREATEST OLD-TIME RADIOS SHOWS OF THE 20TH CENTURY

by | Read by Walter Cronkite et al.

Audio Theater • 30 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

For younger listeners, this program is a glimpse of the first half of the century; for older ones, it’s a walk down memory lane. From either perspective, Walter Cronkite has selected a comprehensive collection of the “best” of Old-Time Radio--including comedy, Abbott & Costello doing their “Who’s on First” routine; drama, Mercury Theatre doing “War of the Worlds” with Orson Welles; family listening, Jimmy Stewart in Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. Unfortunately, the sound quality varies considerably in the 60 shows--from scratchy and unintelligible to perfect quality. Overall, an excellent collection, and a wonderful collector’s item.
