Love ❤️ Alan Ladd

Love box 13 short stories love the voice of Alan Ladd so happy to to be able to listen to these

Keeper_of_tales ,

Very Happy to finally Listen to these again

I used to listen to these on cassette tape with my dad as a bonding activity when I was very young. And I no longer have the tapes or my old Walkman. So finding Box 13 and the others that this company is distributing brings back memories and makes me very happy.
