Great OTR

I am hooked on OTR and Suspense is one of my favorite shows. I appreciate the narrator’s intros to each show. Suspense featured many big stars in its day and it is great to be able to hear them all.

Too many spoilers and too much jazz.

I generally really enjoy the actual shows and I'm grateful to the podcast maker for creating this podcast, but due to the above, I find that I fast forward until the show begins. Perhaps this could be resolved by speaking after the show, and also dropping the music, please. Thanks for good content.
