For what ever reason, the stories aren't in the order that they were recorded in, so it is a little confusing when they hint at the next episode that either already happened, or is so far down the line you'd forget. Other than that it's a good listen, The advertisement can be a little annoying at first, but there is a certain charm to the way that they did these advertisements back in the day that you just don't see anymore.
My quest for Nostalgia couldn't help save this. The 60 second long adds for West coast Wine from the middle of last century were appalling. The genius of Conan Doyle's stories was unable to help the awful presentation. Lucky it only went to air once a week - any more often would have had the audience deserting radio for marathon running.
