There wasn't a weekly "show" like many other OTR programs.

(4 Sterne)

The Mr. and Mrs. North shows popped up irregularly. They were interesting enough for me to check out the source - the books by Richard and Frances Lockridge. The books are much better than the radio programs - the quirky, playful dialogue, only hinted at in the radio programs, gets much more emphasis in the books. And the setting - New York City in the 1940s to early 1960s is something to be savored, like the very cold martinis with lemon peel that the Norths drink every chance they get. Not great mystery novels - but very enjoyable, amusing and relaxing. They will make you nostalgic for a New York City that is no more. Here are the books: The Norths Meet Murder (1940) Murder Out of Turn (1941) A Pinch of Poison (1941) Death on the Aisle (1942) Death Takes a Bow (1943) Hanged for a Sheep (1944) Killing the Goose (1944) Murder Within Murder (1946) Untidy Murder (1947) Payoff for the Banker (1948) Murder Is Served (1948) Death of a Tall Man (1949) The Dishonest Murderer (1949) Murder in a Hurry (1950) Murder Comes First (1951) Dead as a Dinosaur (1952) Death Has a Small Voice (1953) Curtain for a Jester (1953) A Key to Death (1954) Death of an Angel (1955) Voyage into Violence (1956) The Long Skeleton (1958) Murder is Suggested (1959) The Judge is Reversed (1960) Murder Has Its Points (1961) Murder by the Book (1963)

Good Shows, But Terrible Sound Transfer

(2 Sterne)

Can someone step up to the plate and process the poor audio transfers? It runs the otherwise great shows. The levels are all over the place: very low or very high. Then very muddy or very shrill. Need a professional to fix it. It's not enough to simply acquire show and post them no matter what the sound quality.

A True Professional?

(4 Sterne)

I am not sure if people realize that is run by volunteers. All professionals in their own right. After listening to a few of these stories I do agree they need some work. I re-processed one episode just to balance out those highs and lows on my own computer. I appreciate the fact that these programs need work, maybe one could volunteer to upgrade these programs. And then upload them here? I watched Mr. and Mrs. North when they were rebroadcast on of all places Christian television and was very happy to find the radio shows on here. I will download the whole set and see if there isn't any way to clean them up and send them back here. If I have the time that is.

Entertaining and Funny

(4 Sterne)

For a couple who aren't homicide detectives, death sure finds them everywhere! Mrs. North's penchant for sticking her nose in where it doesn't belong left me laughing more often than not. The audio quality on a few episodes has me straining to understand but overall it it just reminded me of growing up listening to radio and how far radio has come. Yay! One story near the end spans several episodes and the end of that story is missing. Thank you to Old Time Radio for making this available for us.

i enjoy old radio programs a ton. radio today honestly lacks hugely by comparison even if it can be dated or corny. These are enjoyable enough and i agree the books are better. i am pretty sure there is a show based on the books as well... acorntv app i want to say has it. the only problem with these recordings are the ones around 14 minutes... they cut off and are unfinished. At first I thought it was sequential and carried over in the next episode lol nope! oh well

Warm Norths

(3 Sterne)

I first heard this series in the '70s and was taken in by the combo of light romance, danger and mystery. Now, time has taken its toll and tho still good, shows its age.

Amateur-sleuthing-couple stories with a light touch

(5 Sterne)

The stories are good; the acting, very good; but the distinct pleasure in this show is the well-written repartee between the Norths.
