Audio quality very poor. Toward end of story it becomes too static to listen to.

Just a Little Too Dated

The performance was good and the fact that it's around to listen to is nice but for me, personally, the story line was just a little too simple. I enjoyed the Gunsmoke shows way back, but I don't think I was listening to the dialog much.
