Yet more fun!

This selection is as good as Volume 1, and contains the same great blend of classic radio mystery and Christmas glitz. The stories in this volume are darker, on the whole, with the Dragnet episode being positively downbeat. But there's still plenty of the holiday spirit -- in the form of thoughtfulness and forgiveness, even when there can't be outright cheer.

As before, the audio quality reflects the vintage source, but it's all quite clear and easy to listen to. The original commercial breaks have been left in, so there's nothing to break the back-in-time atmosphere.

Another great radio collection to listen to any time of year!
