    "Wish Audio Was Better"

    The audio is ok in some and really bad on other stories. If you fish through you will find a few you can actually understand and enjoy.

    "Dreadful sound quality"

    Yes I know it's a very old radio programme but you should be able to make out the words.

    Lasted about 10 minutes.
