NBC Short Stories

NBC Short Story was a commercial failure lasting only one season. However, this series proves the compatibility of short stories and radio series and is highly recommended. It utilized short stories from some of the best modern writers such as Hemingway, Steinbeck, Faulkner, and many others.

Every episode used only the very best that the literary world could offer. This collection represents a majority of the known 25 episode known to be in existence. The series was created too late in the history of Old Time Radio and unfortunately competed with the new world of television.
