AUDIO: Old-Time Radio

One of my favourite commuting entertainments is old-time radio. These were the television mega-hits of their time, and are perfect for revival during the MP3 age because they are designed to be listened to. These shows are generally 30-60 minutes and include detective stories, comedy and variety shows, sci-fi adventures, quiz shows and movie/play dramatizations. Most of these shows have now fallen into the public domain and can be freely shared. Radio Lovers is one of a few websites to do this without charging fees. Here are some of my favourite shows. Multiple episodes are available. There is a lot of free listening here!

Abbott and Costello
The Saint
X Minus 1
Casey, Crime Photographer
