X Minus One Publisher's Summary

X Minus One is widely considered one of the best science fiction radio series to ever be broadcast. Featuring stories written by Ray Bradbury, Clifford Simak, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and other science fiction writing luminaries, X Minus One set the bar for excellence in radio drama.

Noted for its superb acting and directing, and original music scores, X Minus One was hailed by critics for its stories of intelligence, heart, and sheer "scare" factor as each weekly episode transported the listener to other worldly dimensions.

These 32 episodes from season one (actually, 31 episodes as one episode was a repeat, and has been replaced here with the charming NBC Radio promotional jingle as a placeholder) have been digitally remastered and are commercial free.
