Mystery House - Single Episodes
MYSTERY HOUSEMystery House -- that strange publishing firm owned by Dan and Barbara Glenn -- where each new novel is acted out by the Mystery House staff, before it is accepted for publication. Mystery House was a program in the 1950s, but not your "run of the mill"-type program. Actually, it was more of a proving ground for novels. Dan and Barbara Glenn owned a publishing company named "Mystery House" located at 70 Park Avenue, New York City. Dan and Barbara decided to test some of their novels on a real listening audience. Each episode was taken from a novel they were planning on publishing. The entire staff at Mystery House was involved, everyone doing their part, whether it was rewriting to adapt it to radio, playing the parts, or doing sound effects -- everyone joined in. Sadly, not a lot is known about this series. Only fifteen episodes are known to exist. From the Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. See "Note" Section below for more information on the OTRR.
This recording is part of the Old Time Radio collection.
as they say when it opens these are all plays done by staff at mystery house publishing before they accept a manuscript. but there are more than the 15 it says in the description. despite some sound problems these are great stories. all acted by the publishing company. good fun listening if you like the old otr recordings
Thirty-two episodes here
The description of this series laments that only 15 episodes were collected. someone found more?! thanks, energetic production worth saving.
very enjoyable listening, sound quality very good
