The CBS Radio Mystery indeed heralded the revival of the Golden Age of Radio.


With the fine actor E. G. Marshall as the host, the series brought back those great days of mystery, suspense, drama and a touch of history. At first it aired daily, a monumental task when you consider this. But after some six years it went to five times a week. Mr. Marshall hosted the series until its final year when Tammy Grimes took over the chore on Feb 1, 1982.


For the most part long-time radio personalities were heard with a smattering of TV and movie actors doing their part. Almost all of the storylines were newly written and produced, but there were some adaptations based on novels by Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Dickens, Victor Hugo, O. Henry, Nathaniel Hawthorne to name a few. The end of the series came quite quickly in early December 1982 with re-runs filling in the balance of the year.

Selected recordings from Libris Vox volunteers reading classics in the public domain.
