The Mysterious Traveler was a mystery drama anthololgy which ran for nine years (1943-1952). Each week listeners were invited to ride a passenger train in the company of a mysterious stranger (Maurice Tarplin), who always had a dark and uncanny tale for a willing ear. Created by the writing team of Robert A. Arthur and David Kogan, the series was popular enough to engender two 'spin-off' series—The Sealed Book and The Strange Dr. Weird. Both spin-offs produced no originals, only remakes of MT...

X Minus One aired on NBC from 24 April 55 until 9 January 58 for a total of 124 episodes with one pilot or audition story. There was a revival of the series in 1973 when radio was attempting to bring back radio drama and it lasted until 1975. The show occupied numerous time slots through out its run in the 50’s and thus was never able to generate a large following. X Minus One was an extension of Dimension X which aired on NBC from 1950-51. The first fifteen scripts used for X Minus One were...

One of the longest running young-adult-oriented old radio shows during the golden age of radio was the widely popular "Dick Tracy." The series aired over a period of 14 years, from 1934 - 1948, and was based on a newspaper comic strip. This juvenile police detective radio program began as a 15-minute show which was later extended to a full 30-minutes due to popular demand. The series’ central theme was crime-fighting taken to a higher level by the many mind boggling plot twists the...

6 LP boxed set from Longines Symphonette in the late 60's or early 70's (no date on package) hosted by Jack Benny and Frank Knight, this material focuses mainly on the 30's and 40's. All tracks have been processed with noise reduction software for surface noise and clicks & pops. Update (2012-05-03): in response to several complaints about the difficulty of assembling 117 files, I have re-uploaded the album as twelve complete sides. Nothing has been changed other than that. My apologies to...

Space Patrol was a highly successful franchise, packaged as a retro, juvenile serial featuring the adventures of the steely-jawed redoubtable Commander Buzz Corry and his wet-behind-the-ears sidekick Cadet Happy as they combat various 30th-century baddies across the Solar System and beyond. Originally a television series, the same actors reprised their roles for the radio version, which ran concurrently with the TV show from the fall of 1950 to the spring of 1955. [It is unclear when the radio...
