Excellent Old Time Broadcasts

These are from the old Hollywood days of theatre & wonderful to listen to
for those days when you want a trip back to the past.

All round professional productions with excellent casts when Hollywood was 'Hollywood' & full of drama.

As many others have expressed; The music is AWFULLY LOUD & needs
to be recorded at least 75 decibels lower to prevent ear damage it is irritating having to turn the volume button up & down as the music makes you jump out of your skin ! This spoils the dramatic effect of the play.
