There's lots of old-time-radio (OTR) downloads available here (including "Omar" should you feel like setting up a discussion group talk about its literary merits in depth!)
Science fiction your bag? Try "The Seeing Ear Theatre"....even though they're American they've made an effort to spell theatre right and they do a damned good drama! Then of course there's that old classic "The War of the Worlds" with Orson Welles
Moving swiftly along to the weird and wonderful (usually vintage jumble sale type material)...and you can't do better than the "365 days project". As suggested by the name a new gem is posted each day this year. The parent site is worth a look too.
Look, there's loads more and not just audio......but I'll wait to see whether anyone is interested before I post the links

Re previous posting....I had to look, didn't I....just couldn't resist! Now, is that cool or what? (though I believe the blonde in the first row behind is still waiting for settlement on her small claims court action for 'intentional blinding with a microphone stand'!)

I promised Chris I'd post this...it's a science teacher thing, apparently, to mock ones peers. Personally I think it's all down to him wearing that outrageous rainbow coloured smock!Instructions/explanation for the gizmo on the right in the post below.
I'm also going to try adding 'labels' to posts, it's a way of sorting and searching for particular posts in a blog, more often used in ones that have a much larger volume of posts than this one. Just click on one of the labels at the end of the post and you'll get a full list, at least of the ones I remember to add labels to in future of course, there's also a handy list of labels on the right hand side under the archives....lecture over boys and girls, class dismissed!
