X Minus One is widely considered one of the best science fiction radio series to ever be broadcast. Featuring stories written by Ray Bradbury, Clifford Simak, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and other science fiction writing luminaries, X Minus One set the bar for excellence in radio drama.
Noted for its superb acting and directing, and original music scores, X Minus One was hailed by critics for its stories of intelligence, heart, and sheer "scare" factor as each weekly episode transported the listener to other worldly dimensions.
These 32 episodes from season one (actually, 31 episodes as one episode was a repeat, and has been replaced here with the charming NBC Radio promotional jingle as a placeholder) have been digitally remastered and are commercial free.

The stories are interesting and the list of authors is impressive. I couldn't listen to much of the series as the repeat of the intro and end titles got to me. It should be noted that the levels of sound aren't conducive to comfortable ear piece listening; very soft to very loud, with some startling volumes.
An interesting part of radio/SF history, but a little goes a long way.
"Great old radio scifi"
Great old radio scifi from the twilight zone mold. What else is there to say about scifi and old radio
"Break it UP!"
The entire buncha vignettes are put into 2 piles; there needs to be a finer chaptering.
Other than that, these are some of the finest stories ever!
These are classic stories!
"A real slice of life."
Great shorts, fun commercials, classic music, and foley work. 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20....really a minimum?
"Old but entertaining"
Great stories. They have stood the test of time amazingly well, but then the writers are some of the best Sci-Fi storytellers ever. I recommend this to any classic Sci-Fi fans, you will love this. Some great original plots and some nice light comedy as well.
