Space travel and interplanetary encounters captivate science-fiction fans in X-Minus One, a sophisticated production with broad appeal, even for listeners who typically bypass sci-fi. Episodes offer seemingly impossible but unnervingly believable stories of people and places created in the minds of their authors. The highly successful program was generally considered adult entertainment but also enjoyed by older children who could understand the fantasy nature of the sometimes disturbing conclusions of select episodes.

The early episodes of X-Minus One were adapted from a then-popular magazine, “Astounding Science Fiction.” It was well done entertainment in the early months, but later original material and increasing quality of writing propelled X-Minus One to the pinnacle of sci-fi success. The program ran from April 24, 1955, to January 9, 1958, a time when the Golden Age of radio was giving way to television Many outstanding radio shows succumbed. But X-Minus One survived, and ardent sci-fi aficionados today are thrilled when they discover this enduring listening treasure.
