I have been listening to 'old time radio' a bit lately because Im cool like that.
( Mind Webs is from the 70s so more old school maybe ) If you like Science Fiction you should listen to some Mind Webs episodes.


Mind Webs, a 1970's series out of WHA Radio in Wisconsin featured weekly semi-dramatized readings of science fiction short stories by some of the genre's best writers like Norman Spinrad, Arthur C. Clarke, Gordon R. Dickson, and Ray Bradbury. Many of the readings were enhanced by music, periodic sound cues, and the occasional character voice, however they are not completely dramatized. In a way Mind Webs stories are a cross between radio drama and audio books. The music is an excellent accompaniment to the performance of Michael Hansen, which leaves the listener with a sense of excitement a lot of radio dramas lack. The OTR Plot Spot has some good summaries of several of the stories.


You might not be able to find many of the short stories in print and as you can see, the show featured some awesome writers. Some of the stories are so cool. Worth a listen if you are bored.

Nice. Thanks! I used to listen to Adam Graham's great detectives of old time radio (hope I got that name right) and found I love love love old time radio! Whenever I was on break from school I'd sit and do jigsaw puzzles and listen to old noir detective programs.
