I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

  • "Freaky stories, times haven't changed"

    Overall

    Very sad. Very strange. Some stories never seem to be totally from a different time, murder of a child is one of those stories. It just seems so out of sorts, wrong. Good narration and sound quality.

  • "Werewolf and homicide"

    Overall

    This is an episode where the newspapers play into how people think. The suspect was described as a werewolf and then chaos ensues. Victims are generally women and in the wee hours. Good reason to stay home in the early AM.

    The CBS Radio Workshop was an experimental series of productions, subtitled "radio's distinguished series to man's imagination" that ran between 27 January 1956 and 22 September 1957. The premiere production was Brave New World, narrated by Huxley himself, with a complicated sound-effects score that evidently took a long time to construct, and comprised a ticking metronome, tom-tom beats, bubbling water, an air hose, a cow's moo, an oscillator, and three kinds of wine glasses clicking together.

He's film legend James Stewart in his only continuing radio role as Britt Ponsett: The Six Shooter. Here are twenty tense, exciting episodes from the 1953-54 series - including the original audition!

It starred Hollywood film and New York stage veteran Eve Arden, who specialized in playing the wisecracking friend. She often did it better than anyone else, receiving an Oscar nomination for the 1945 film Mildred Pierce. Since her skill with the wicked one-liner was beginning to lead to typecasting, Arden signed on for the lead in radio's Our Miss Brooks to find a new image.
