X Minus One
was a half-hour science fiction radio drama series
broadcast
from April 24, 1955 to January 9, 1958 in numerous
timeslots on
NBC. The series was never able to generate a
large following.   

The writers of the magazine stories were not well known then
but now are the giants of today. These stories came from the
minds of Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and Poul Anderson to
name a few.
