It has occurred to me that some of you out there may not know about some of the features of this site, so here’s a brief summary of some of what is available.  Click here the AIOHQ Technical Details.

Radio Episodes -- These pages are the heart of this website, devoted to details on every single radio episode of AIO ever created.   Right now, there are more than 450 episodes including Family Portraits. They are listed by year, chronologically, and alphabetically. Each radio episode includes:
Essential Facts.  This section lists the writer, director, production engineer, original air date, scripture reference, and theme of the episode.  The names link to a listing of every single episode that person has worked on.
Collection.  Lists the album the episode is in and links to an album listing.
Plot.  Gives a very brief summary of the plot of the episode, usually of only a sentence or two.
Important Characters. Gives a list of the prominent characters of the episode.   Click on their name to see a complete listing of all of the episodes in which they appeared.
Notes.  This could include any of the following. GOOF ALERT points out possible errors in the episode. VERSION DIFFERENCE tells a difference between the album version and the radio version of the episode (some album versions have some scenes or parts of scenes added).  Notes also include remake information, such as where certain episodes were changed and re-released.  Notes sometimes also include a few things that are interesting about the episode, or will play a large part in later episodes, such as plotlines or questions I had about the episode.

Additionally there are pages for special types of AIO programs:

KIDS RADIO Broadcasts
Imagination Station Adventures
Room Of Consequence Experiences
BTV Episodes
AIO Short Skits
Bible stories
Historical stories

The following sections are under Episodes:

Reviews. Some fan takes on the episode and what they liked and disliked.

A note on my ratings: I think that nearly all AIO episodes are superior to any other series. There is such a high level of quality for AIO that nearly every episode is amazingly better than anything else on TV or radio. However, I had to have some way to compare episodes and so I rate episodes based on other AIO episodes. I give four stars only to the very best episodes. (If you give every episode four stars, the ratings loose their meaning.) I give 3 1/2 stars to the nearly perfect episodes and 3 stars to episodes I really liked. 2 1/2 stars are decent episodes, but don't rise to the level of memorable. 2 stars are average episodes, but not really that original or interesting. 1 1/2 are episodes that I don't like that well for some reason and 1 star episodes are just plain bad.  I also do not intend the ratings to be a "recommendation" for or against the episode.  All AIO episodes are worthy of listening.

If the review says SPOILER WARNING it means that if you have not listened to the episode yet, something in the review may make the episode less exciting or "edge-of-your-seat".  Since all reviews do this to some extent, I only apply the warning to reviews that reveal major plotlines.

Note: Starting with the fall of 2000, the reviews are "consolidated" or capsule reviews from all sites.
Storylines keeps track of the current storylines.
