    X Minus One was a half-hour science fiction radio series broadcast from April 24, 1955 to January 9, 1958 in various timeslots on NBC. Initially a revival of NBC's Dimension X (1950-51), X Minus One is widely considered among the finest science fiction dramas ever produced for radio. The first 15 episodes were new versions of Dimension X episodes, but the remainder were adaptations by NBC staff writers, including Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts, of newly published science fiction stories.

    What did you love best about X Minus One?

    Mix of styles and authors


    What about Old Time Radio’s performance did you like?

    Was a flashback to early Sci-Fi


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No,


    Any additional comments?

    Hearing the opening theme over and over got old.
    Also some of the stories were repeated.
    I know this happened in the original series, but even a quick edit should have caught this.
    Could have added some of the stories they left out instead.
