Radio Works of Carlton E. Morse
Hello MPIR Fans & Friends,
The mystery stream is featuring some of the radio works of Carlton E. Morse. Currently the playlists features: Adventures By Morse "The Cobra King Strikes Back" 10 parts each 30 minutes.
Adventures in Cambodia.
Captain Bart Friday was a globe-trotting San Francisco-based private investigator, portrayed during the series by Elliott Lewis, David Ellis and Russell Thorson. Friday's sidekick from Texas, Skip Turner, was played mostly by Jack Edwards and occasionally by Barton Yarborough. The tales covered such areas as espionage, kidnapping and murder, along with secret Nazi bases, snake worshipers and voodoo.
I Love A Mystery "Fear Creeps Like A Cat" and "The Million Dollar Curse".
The central characters, Jack Packard, Doc Long, and Reggie York, met as mercenary soldiers fighting the Japanese in China. Later, they met again in San Francisco, where they decided to form the A-1 Detective Agency. Their motto was "No job too tough, no adventure too baffling." The agency served as a plot device to involve the trio in a wide variety of stories. These straddled the genres of mystery, adventure, and supernatural horror, and the plot lines often took them to exotic locales.
I Love Adventure 1948 several episodes placed in the play listing.
This was a 30-minute weekly adventure series which only appeared in the summer of 1948. The show continued the adventures of the I Love A Mystery series.
The play listing also includes a few interviews with the main characters. Most of the original recordings of some of these series have been lost to history, and so some of recordings are later 1948 - 150 recreations. However the true flavor of Carlton E. Morse's writing is retained. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
