Tasteful adaptation of lengthy radio serial.
All the intro music and closing music was removed, as well as those pesky recaps.
The discreet overlayering of recent music cues definitely enhanced the soundscape.
All audio editing struck me as seamless.
This would make a nice introduction to OTR (old time radio), and it is just short enough to listen to on a commute. Say, 40+ minutes each way.
Bear in mind, however, Superman was a childrens program, so the plot was simplistic and many characters are adult juveniles.
While not a kiddie show, it still seemed aimed toward 8-12 year olds. Nothing wrong with that, especially since recent movie action fare targets 14-22 year olds.
I certainly recommend this for the curious, and hope Siebener continues with a part 2, since the next section details Superman's fight with Atom Man, the most highly regarded section of the series.
