GREAT OLD TIME RADIO
Molle Mystery Theater
MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
The sponsor of this show, Sterling Drugs, makers of Molle Shave Cream, used it as a vehicle for advertising. In over a decade, the show went through several incarnations, beginning first as Molle Mystery Theater, then simply Mystery Theater in '48, as Sterling emphasized Bayer Aspirin and Phillips Milk of Magnesia. Several versions were broadcast in the early 50s,
As Molle Mystery Theater through 1948, the show centered around the character Geoffrey Barnes, a crime fiction expert and connoisseur who served as host. Bernard Lenrow played Barnes with a suave subtlety that foreshadowed the host of Crime Classics, a fact-based crime show that ran in '53-'54. The Molle Mystery Theater starred some of the best of New York's radio actors, including Joseph Julian, Anne Seymour, and Raymond Edward Johnson (the famous Raymond of the Inner Sanctum Mysteries, and librarian of the Crime Club.) Also occasionally appearing were film stars such as Richard Widmark and Frank Lovejoy (who does a great job as Randy Stone in the old time radio show Nightbeat.)
The shows were tight and tension filled, with a fine orchestra score and solid production values. Classic tales from well-known authors, as well as modern unknowns were presented, and the endings were often twists or shockers.
THERE ARE 46 Episodes ON 1 CD AND THEY ARE IN MP3 FORMAT. THEY WILL PLAY ON ANY COMPUTER AND SOME CD PLAYERS THAT ARE MARKED PLAYS MP3s.
