"Five nights of exceptional entertainment every week!"
Produced and directed by Elliott Lewis and Fletcher Markle, The Mutual Radio Theater was a bold experiment in reviving the art of radio drama. Big name hosts - including Lorne Greene, Andy Griffith, Vincent Price, Cicely Tyson, and Leonard Nimoy - introduced westerns, adventure tales, and productions with a light comedic touch.
These film and television stars shared the microphone with veterans of "the theater of the mind," including Arch Oboler, Frank Nelson, Harold Peary, Jeanette Nolan, Parley Baer, Tommy Cook, June Foray, and more. The result was truly evolved and exciting entertainment!
This six-hour set includes eight digitally remastered episodes and a Program Guide by Ivan G. Shreve, Jr.
