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.Read more ›

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.
