Listened to these when I was a kid. Listen to it now when working around the house or just to relax. Can see all the action with my imagination. Far better than what I find on tv. Glad I searched the web and found it.
Love it- get more
I listened to these 4 shows while walking- made the time go by fast and they were so interesting! Wish they had more than four shows here! Reminded me of when I was a kid- I even loved those old commercials!
