Feature Presentation - From the Sci- Fi Radio Series we bring you Vintage Season.  The original story is by Henry Kuttner and C. L. Moore, and has been selected for the Science Fiction Hall of Fame collections.  It involves a Mr. Wilson who has rented his house to some foreign visitors who have come to enjoy the excellent weather of the season.  His fiance wants him to kick them out because he also has an offer to buy the house for three times what it's worth, as long as the buyer can move in right away.  But the visitors insist on staying.  They have some remarkable gadgets in their rooms, and they all act and speak so precisely.  Why is everyone so eager to occupy this house at this time?  Mr. Wilson eventually discovers that they are all time travelers who are visiting around to the best seasons.  There is much more to discover when other visitors arrive to marvel at the Vintage Season.

The Sci-Fi Radio series has been generally unavailable since the early 90s.  Recently it turned up on Archive.org, and all 26 episodes are there.  If you'd like to hear more, take a look at (http://archive.org/details/Sci-fiRadio).
