MOLLE MYSTERY THEATRE - 1943 / 1952

"NBC's Mystery Theatre began airing with much fanfare on September 7, 1943. The series promised stories from the greatest classical and contemporary mystery authors--and production values to match. And it kept its promise. It was aided from the outset by the addition of an 'annotator'--as it was described in the 1940s--named Geoffrey Barnes. The annotator served in the role of expositor, filling in on the plot development as necessary and providing a back-story when needed. The apparent distinction made between a narrator and an annotator, was a matter of degree. Mr. Barnes, a distinguished and celebrated amateur criminologist in his own right, was apparently on hand to help the listener analyze and understand the various mysteries and their underlying crimes within each script.

"The program appears to have aired sustained for its first three months, with three to five sponsors beginning to make an appearance with Program #17, The Mystery of The Seven Keys of December 28, 1943. There is a circulating program titled Homicide for Hannah, that should have been the first Mollé Mystery Theatre, but there is no provenance anywhere that the initial program ever actually aired.
