Kell the owner and operator of Mystery Play Internet Radio has only one purpose and passion. To enable as many people as possible from all over the world the ability to listen and share old time radio.

MPIR Features

The Mystery stream will feature several episode of The Whistler.

The Whistler ran from 1942- 1955, on the west-coast regional CBS radio network. The show was also broadcast in Chicago and over Armed Forces Radio. On the west coast, it was sponsored by the Signal Oil Company: "That Whistle is your signal for the Signal Oil program, The Whistler."

“ the Whistler, and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales, many secrets hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows. Yes... I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak!”

Episodes of The Mysterious Traveler, The Shadow, The Chase, Suspense, Molle Mystery Theater, The Campbell Playhouse, Lux Radio Theater and more.

The MPIR Comedy stream will feature several episodes of You Bet Your Life.

You Bet Your Life is an American quize show that aired on both radio and television, hosted by Groucho Marx with announcer and assistant George Fenneman. The show debuted on ABC Radio on October 27, 1947, then moved to CBS Radio October 5, 1949 before making the transition to NBC-TV and NBC Radio on October 4, 1950. Because of its simple format, it was possible to broadcast the show simultaneously on radio and television. June 10, 1960 was the last episode aired in its radio broadcast format. The play of the game, however, was secondary to the interplay between Groucho, the contestants, and occasionally Fenneman.

Episodes of The Jack Benny Program, Burns and Allen Show, Martin & Lewis Show, My Favorite Husband, Our Miss Brooks, Fibber McGee & Molly, and more.
