Some years ago, after buying a satellite radio, I became a fan of a channel called Radio Classics, which plays radio shows from the ‘30s through the ‘50s. One of my favorite programs is X Minus One, a popular 1950s sci-fi show which aired adaptations of short stories written by some of top writers of the time. The X Minus One Project is a collection of eight short stories adapted by the radio show. Many of the stories are haunting reminders of the fear and pessimism that permeated society during the early Cold War years. All are classics.
