"[X Minus One] brought current SF to radio, providing adaptations of many excellent new stories and thus allowing the public to appreciate the best science fiction available at the time." (Michael Ashley, The Time Machines: The Story of the Science-Fiction Pulp Magazines)

Beware of all X-minus One productions, they start and end with a high shrill blast to your ears. This is story is a classic and is much better in it's original form. It can be found in Alternating Currents by Pohl. This story is still good in this form and is worth a listen, but you still want to find it in print as it is not the same.
