This what’s me and my teenagers here these great stories without waiting through long commercial breaks on the radio when we used to sit in the car just to hear these because it was the only place that got reception. Several times each story it backs up a few seconds and repeats but it is not completely unbearable. I don’t know if this is a flaw and maybe if fixed would be better but even my teenagers don’t complain. I’m just glad that myself and my children are able to even hear these gems from an era gone bye.

Love the content, hate the app!

Just cancelled my subscription because of issues with the app. I like binging a show but the app won’t let you do it even though there’s a play all option. I was just listening to Suspense and had to pause for a moment. When I tried to resume playback, the app reloaded and all the Suspense episodes that I was listening to were gone and different ones loaded. I’ve had this happen time after time and it’s annoying. Sometimes three episodes of a series will load and then it may be 20. There’s no way to continue listening without this annoyance.

As I said, the content is awesome but the app ruins the listening experience.

What a fantastic find! I first heard it over a year ago when it was played at the end of my local radio air time, I had never heard “old time radio “ before. I am a 74 yr by old woman who has listened to radio at night since the early 60’s. Thank you for having this radio station with such history of America on in an entertaining manner while I listen before going to sleep. More people should know about RadioSpirits statiion…..When Radio Was!! Thank you again.
