I stopped regularly listening to Adventures in Odyssey years ago. It's not that I got too old for this radio drama for kids. Well, age wise I might be, but I still found the shows entertaining. I just had a hard time finding a radio station I could get them on. Anyway, I recently picked up their 50th collection of episodes, The Best Small Town, and listened to it on a road trip. I had a blast reconnecting with these old friends.

If you aren't familiar with this show, Adventures in Odyssey is an old fashioned radio drama. Produced by Christian organization Focus on the Family, these stories are set in the fictional small town of Odyssey. They follow the exploits of John Avery Whitaker (also known as Whit), a grandfatherly figure who runs the local hang out, Whit's End. Other adult main characters include Connie, who helps run Whit's End among other things, Eugene, the local brain, and Wooten the mailman. Over the years, a series of kids have come and gone, usually spending a year of two growing up on the radio. The episodes usually alternate between something the adult characters are dealing with and something the kids are facing. The shows are targeted for ages 8-12, so they never get too adult in nature. They are definitely Christian themed, but they rarely resort to preaching.

Unlike many collections, this one has a self-contained story that serves as an anchor for the twelve half hour episodes contained here. A magazine has selected the town to be one of the contestants for their annual Best Small Town issue. All the residents attempt to put their best foot forward to win. While Bart Rathbone, owner of the local electronics store, attempts to make his store more rustic, Connie tries to get everyone to be overly nice to everyone.

HASH(0x9e621b88) out of 5 stars Fan for a long time 29 Nov. 2008
By J. Carpenter - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've listened to Adventures in Odyssey for almost my whole life. (because im actually 11.) I was so excited when I looked on Amazon and saw that there was a new one coming out. I asked my mom to buy it, and when it came I spent most of the day up in my room listening to it. But I think this disk set is a good one to listen with the whole family. There isnt any really scary parts of this set. My only negative comment is that the first episode of the first disk is kind of boring but, listen to it anyway. It's helpful for the next few episodes. But other wise I thought it was a great Adventures in Odyssey.

HASH(0x9e621bdc) out of 5 stars Adventures in Odyssey 29 Jun. 2009

Adventures in Odyssey is a welcome friend in our family. My kids love listening to the stories unfold while riding in the car or before falling asleep at night. I appreciate the highly imaginative stories being told. It is great for my kids to listen w/their ears to the story details and fill in the pictures in their own imaginations. It develops good listening skills and promotes focus. Great tools and just plain good fun. Glad to have these CD's in our home entertainment/educational library.

HASH(0x9d294630) out of 5 stars Very good, but not as good as I expect from Odyssey 25 Nov. 2009
By Phil - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As always with Odyssey, I am expecting nothing but the very best... and I am rarely disappointed. This album just happened to have stories that were not that interesting to me. To be honest, if this was the first adventures in Odyssey that I had listened to (instead of being a fan for 10+ yrs.) I might not have bought another.

If you are new to Odyssey, I recommend instead "The Novacom Saga," a riveting mystery, which I consider to be some of their best work.

These stories are awesome and teach valuable lessons. My children have been listening to them for years starting at age 4. Another great addition to Odyssey and Whit's End.
