    Only listen to one episode but I did like it. I have a feeling that I will wish that there were more episodes.

    Still listening to the episodes, but so far so good.

    Since you asked; I grew up on Mr. Chameleon (late 1940s-early 50s). I have been so grateful that the first 2 episodes were available. Some years ago I had made mention online to you that "wouldn't it be great if somehow some more episodes were discovered". I have played the original 2 so much I know each line before it is spoken. Then recently along came another set and then voila the last group. Wow! A chance to memorize some, life is good. Some people read before going to sleep, I listen to OTR. Thanks for asking, Paul
