Publisher's Summary

Theater Five was ABC's attempt to revive radio drama during the early 1960s. The series name was derived from its time slot, 5:00 p.m. Running Monday through Friday, it was an anthology of short stories, each about 20 minutes long. News programs and commercials filled out the full 30 minutes. There was a good bit of science fiction, and some of the plots seem to have been taken from the daily newspaper. Fred Foy of The Lone Ranger fame was an ABC staff announcer in the early '60s who, among other duties, did Theater Five.

From the Old Time Radio Researcher's Group.

Loved it

I saw a previous reviewer, disliked this collection because of bad audio? I only had a couple that were a little muffled. The rest are fine! This is a great collection, and quite a bargain! 90 HOURS? Cannot beat it.
