couldn't finish it even though it's an hour

I knew I was purchasing old radio programs but if you have any sense in your head at all these will drive you crazy for their simplicity. They are not good examples of sherlock holmes - edited and cut and done in a silly fashion with irritating sounds effects. Did not enjoy.
