I love the old Superman radio show, but this is a terrible reproduction. No mastering work has been done, the copy of each episode is filled with static and is occasionally impossible to hear. And to be explicit, I don't mean that there's a little bit of wear and static, which you would expect from an old recording - I mean to say that some episodes you can't make out even one word in five. With others you can get by if you really focus, but either way, this is not an enjoyable listening experience.
Also, to correct an error in the listing - the author Michael Teitelbaum has nothing to do with this collection. He wrote a children's book of Superman titled "I Am Superman", and the title here has been picked up for unknown reasons. This is old episodes of the Superman radio show, first aired in the 1940s. I truly love the radio show and have been hunting for the old episodes for a long time, and thought I'd hit the jackpot here, but this is a sham. It's terrible that a site named Audible would let something so inaudible be posted to their site.
Save your money.

Any additional comments?
I am a fan of old serials, radio and film. Unfortunately, the source material for these recordings is very poor. The static makes it very difficult to make out the dialogue. When listening in the car, it's almost impossible. Disappointed.

I have no issue with the story or character portrayals. The sound quality is incredibly poor...
I love the old radio dramas and have quite a few now thanks to audible. Unfortunately trying to listen to this one is terrible. You have to strain to hear what the characters are saying and really can't get into it. Not one of my better purchases.
