CBS Radio Mystery Theater


E. G. Marshall


Tammy Grimes

This was probably the last of the top quality radio shows to be aired in the USA by a major network. It ran from 1974 to 1982. It started with 7 episodes a week but soon dropped to five. It ran for a total of 2,969 shows. However, many episodes were repeated and the actual number of unique episodes was only 1,399. It was hosted by E. G. Marshall until Tanny Grimes took over the hosting duties in February of 1982.

The show was created and produced by Himan Brown (of Inner Sanctum fame) and featured the creaking door make famous on the Inner Sanctum. This program has to be consided first rate in every category and I recommend it if you like mystery and suspense.
