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.
