      "Introduced me to a lost art - radio stories"

      This was a wonderful collection of both humerous abd dramatic radio presentations from the 30s, 40s, and early 50s. Great introduction to a genre I'd never heard before!

      "Good Christmas Tales!"

      I really liked this selection. There was a good variety with the old classics like A Christmas Carol (which was my personal favourite...Lionel Barrymore was excellent as Scrooge)and the comedy of Miracle on 42nd Street came a very close second for me. I also enjoyed Christmas by Injunction which had a nice little twist at the end. All in all, it is worth a listen to get into the Christmas spirit and with 6 plays for under ?4, can't be bad can it!
