    Go back in time and listen to an original radio broadcast

    I love to listen to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson and how they figure out ¿who done it¿. This audiobook was especially good since it allowed you to ¿go back in time¿ to when you parents and grandparents listened to his stores on the old RCA Radio. I learned several things by listening to this. 1. Sherlock Homes had a brother. I had never heard about any family of his in any of the stories I had listened to or read. 2. Two different actors portrayed Sherlock Holmes. I never knew there was any other actor than Basil Rathbone. 3. Radio is no different from TV today when it comes to commercials. They are all LOUD! I had to turn the CD player down when the story broke for commercials. 4. I learned about Petrie Wine and Kreml Hair Cream until I felt I could sell for these companies. This, of course, was because I was listening to one program right after the other rather than as the original broadcasts which were one a week. The music and sound effects were very well done. The actors were exceptional because they only had their voices to portray the story. As we all know, radio is an audio media without video to lend to the acting. I could picture them as if I was watching them on stage. This CD contains 12 of the Sherlock Holmes stories. I may just acquire another CD of these remastered, original broadcasts because this one held my attention to the very end.
