Tagged: Radio

Radio series (1945). The Mutual Broadcasting Network. Created and written by Robert Arthur and David Kogan. Produced by Jock MacGregor. Host and narrator: Philip Clarke. 26 30-minute episodes.

A spin-off from The Mysterious Traveler (1943-1952), this short-lived companion series broadcast remakes of some of the more popular instalments of its progenitor. Besides the narrator/host, the only recurring character was the always silent "Keeper of the Book" of past mysteries and secrets, from which each week's story was taken. Nearly all instalments were Horror or mystery-suspense, although "Beware of Tomorrow" (29 July 1945) is outright sf featuring a Robot, and "Time on My Hands" (26 August 1945) uses the fantasy concept of a pawnshop that deals in Time.
