Old Time Radio

Old Time Radio - April 2018

Mar 30, 2018

In April WXXI Reachout Radio premieres episodes of the radio series X Minus One, which aired on NBC from 24 April 55 until 9 January 58 for a total of 124 episodes with one pilot or audition story. There was a revival of the series in 1973 when radio was attempting to bring back radio drama and it lasted until 1975. The show occupied numerous time slots through out its run in the 50's and thus was never able to generate a large following.
