A Classic

Beware of all X-minus One productions, they start and end with a high shrill blast to your ears. This is story is a classic and is much better in it's original form. It can be found in Alternating Currents by Pohl. This story is still good in this form and is worth a listen, but you still want to find it in print as it is not the same.
