I like all of the "Dimension X" series, but this is one of my all time favorites. My kids even enjoyed it and wanted more.

"Excellent short story"
Near the top.
This version of Green Hills of Earth made me smile. We finally get to hear the music, even if it sounds like an old prospector singing to his jackass.
It has four separate stories. I like some time between them.
This collection features four classic, dramatized Robert Heinlein stories: "Universe", "Requiem", "The Green Hills of Earth", and "The Roads Must Roll".

"Nostalgic listen even though predictable"
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.
An elderly, invalid woman begins receiving strange, anonymous phone calls on a stormy night — phone calls, which she finds out, are routed directly through — the Twilight Zone.
