Great

I really love this podcast. The content and audio quality of the shows presented in this podcast is very good, but unlike other podcast which broadcast old radio shows, the host Adam Graham makes them come alive. I really enjoy his commentary and insights into each episode. If you are looking for a pod cast for old time radio shows, this is number 1 on my list. Well done Adam!!
