Summary

Suspense went through several major phases, characterized by different hosts, sponsors, and director/producers. Formula plot devices were followed for all but a handful of episodes: The protagonist was usually a normal person suddenly dropped into a threatening or bizarre situation; solutions were "withheld until the last possible second"; and evildoers were usually punished in the end.
This is the most comprehensive collection of the great series. This show really keeps the listener in suspense! Enjoy!

Needs to be culled to eliminate programs

What would have made Suspense: Tales Well Calculated - Volume 1 better?

The programs that cannot be listened to, should be eliminated. What good is 90 hours of programing, if you have to go through 40 hours of unintelligible listening. I feel I have been cheated of my time to not get any enjoyment out my limited listening time.

What could CBS Radio Network have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Eliminate the bad recordings

How could the performance have been better?

I could not tell about the performances as I could not listen to them.

I however a big follower of radio classics on the radio and I love the Suspense recordings, so I know they do have some great performances. That is why I bought this album.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment is an understatement.

Any additional comments?

I am big classic radio program lover. I was so excited to get this collection. Much to my dismay, I could not understand or follow the programs I took the time to try.

I went through the first 10 programs and only one was I able to listen to. The others were so scratchy I could not understand or follow because there was too much distracting from the pleasure of listening to the program.

The one I was able to listen to, had problems with the sounds at times being too loud and shrill or too soft to understand. I had to turn up the volume to catch the soft parts and then when it became loud it was unbearable.

After 10 programs, I gave up and returned the album.
