Dimension X - Sci-fi Radio Show

Strange that so little good science fiction came out of radio; they seem ideally compatible, both relying heavily on imagination. Some fine isolated science fiction stories were developed on the great anthology shows, Suspense and Escape. But until the premiere of Dimension X -- a full two decades after network radio was established -- there were no major science fiction series of broad appeal to adults. This show dramatized the work of such young writers as Ray Bradbury, Robert (Psycho) Bloch, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, and Kurt Vonnegut. In-house script writer was Ernest Kinoy, who adapted the master works and contributed occasional storied of his own.
Dimension X was a very effective demonstration of what could be done with science fiction on the air. It came so late that nobody cared, but some of the stories stand as classics of the medium. Bradbury's "Mars Is Heaven" is as gripping today as when first heard. His "Martian Chronicles" was one of the series' most impressive offerings.

These guys had a lot of shows to choose from, then their update happened, and now theres only 4 or 5, the rest need to be purchased. There are way better ones that offer more shows, while they do charge for extra episodes, they still give you a lot more to choose from.
This is a very well put together app, Taha Maddam produces the best old time radio apps in the App Store. It lets you download the programs so you do not have to stream and can leave devices in airplane mode.
This used to be a good app, now you only get 5 free episodes. I will promptly delete this and listen for free in the podcast app.
