For many reasons, from imperfect source recordings to careless mp3 encoding, the audio quality of classic era radio plays available on the internet varies considerably. Fortunately, different versions of an episode are likely to exist, so a decent listenable one can usually be found.

"Anyone who's ever listened to radio drama will testify to the fact that a play you hear will (remain) in your mind - twelve years later you'll remember it vividly. And the reason you'll remember it vividly is because you've done the work... it lives in your imagination."
