CBS Radio Mystery Theater 15 Episodes Page 7


(4.4 stars; 56 reviews)

CBS Radio Mystery Theater (aka Radio Mystery Theater and Mystery Theater, sometimes abbreviated as CBSRMT) was a radio drama series created by Himan Brown that was broadcast on CBS Radio Network affiliates from 1974 to 1982, and later in the early 2000s was briefly carried by WVXU in Cincinnati.

The format was similar to that of classic old time radio shows such as The Mysterious Traveler and The Whistler, in that the episodes were introduced by a host (E. G. Marshall) who provided pithy wisdom and commentary throughout. Unlike the hosts of those earlier programs, Marshall is fully mortal, merely someone whose heightened insight and erudition plunge the listener into the world of the macabre (in a manner similar to that of "The Man in Black" on yet another old time radio program, Suspense).

This recording is part of the Old Time Radio collection.

Sister of Death

I was a little surprised to hear voice actor Allen Reed (Fred Flintstone) in this one. Wonderful!

Excellent!

Great stories with a plethora of talented voice work that stands the test of time. The commercials and news briefs are an added bonus that really hammer home how much simpler things were then compared to 2020. Even if it did seem just the opposite at the time.
