From the far horizons of the unknown come transcribed tales of new dimensions in time and space. These are the words that kicked off each episode of X Minus One, a sci-fi radio series that ran on NBC from 1955-1958. You can find X Minus One episodes on the Internet Archive (link embedded below) or as podcasts through iTunes.
These are stories of the future; adventures in which you'll live in a million could-be years on a thousand may-be worlds.


I like old-timey radio shows, but everything I'd ever come across had been mostly mysteries or dramas, things like Orson Welles' Mercury productions, The Many Lives of Harry Lime, a series of "prequels" to The Third Man, Suspense!, which would sometimes land guest stars like Peter Lorre, and The Shadow, which was just kinda bad. Like most of these old radio shows, there are some clunkers -- and it'll take a smarter man than me to figure out the 1950s fixation on creepy dolls -- but there are also dramatized short stories from Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Philip K. We can watch classic sci-fi movies now and recognize the markers of Cold War paranoia, the fixation with the brand-new space race, and the ignorance of what lay beyond our atmosphere, but it's not the same.
I imagine you can find them on CDs still, too, but that might be a little too much retro for one person to handle all at once.


This is vintage, present-at-the-creation type stuff, here, before these guys were really famous, let alone legends. The shows were co-sponsored by sci-fi pulps like Galaxy Science Fiction and Astounding Science Fiction, and drew from all of the writers that were being published prominently there.
