Love the stories, not the format
If you could sum up Selected Shorts in three words, what would they be?
baseball, live, endearing
What did you like best about this story?
Loved the readings! Baseball fans will laugh and tear up at the nostalgic look back at these stores. Remember, some of these were contemporary for the period this was recorded. My how some things have changed. And, how some things have not.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I loved the live performances. The audience interaction/reactions are a welcome part of each story. I did not like all the wasted intro/lead-in time. Just read the stories. Edit out the other.

Good for nostalgia, I suppose.
Any additional comments?
This is old time radio melodrama at its best and its worst. Tedious, overacting from the VERY old days of radio. I'm sure this scared the pants off people 50-60 years ago. I barely got through half. On the upside, if you are looking for a trip back to a time when horror was simplistic and radio took the time to go full-on production, then it is worth a listen... when it is half-price.
