Great sound, as expected from Radio Archives! Even though I had all these shows, I knew these would be an upgrade, so I happily bought them. Has become a weekly series for the time being on my overnight show on WBAI - The Dustbin of History, 1 to 3am Tuesday overnights. (had to work in a cheap plug!)

Outstanding Release of an Outstanding Show
February 18, 2013
Robert G from NY United States
Orson Welles Mercury Theater is probably one of the most important OTR series ever produced. Although most notable for its infamous War of the Worlds broadcast, each and every episode in the series is fantastic storytelling for the Audio Medium.
This collection from RadioArchives is probably the only release I've ever seen that collects these great episodes and the quality is outstanding. Dracula in particular (my personal favorite for years) sounds better here than I have ever heard it and I doubt it will ever sound any better. The quality of the restoration is as amazing as the quality of the show itself.
