I'm grateful that someone is posting old time radio and I enjoy the show Gunsmoke. However, I am less pleased with the audio quality. Granted the tapes are old and there's only so much clean up one can do without completely remastering them but the audio is fuzzy & hard to hear sometimes. Worse, is when the show is interrupted by a sudden jump; sometimes backwards sometimes forwards. I have to assume the shows aren't like that in their original form. The quality is good enough for a free podcast but it's nothing I would ever pay for.
I think these shows are very entertaining. Great to listen to, very captivating. Each episode is like its own show. Amazing quality. I'm only 13, but i love to listen to these shows that my grandparents listened to, especially Gunsmoke!
This series is widely considered to be the best of the old-time radio programs. It's a feast for the imagination, yet perfectly accessible popular entertainment. An ideal companion for a long car ride!
My dad loved the Gunsmoke TV show so when I found out there was a podcast I gave it a shot. I found out that the old radio show is even better than the TV show! If you are a Gunsmoke fan I highly recommend it, or if you're just an old time radio fan. The only thing I don't like about it is the music is much louder than the dialog and if you download a couple episodes you'll know what I mean.
