I Love a Mystery Old Time Radio Program

I Love a Mystery Old Time Radio Program
15 minute detective/adventure show (a few episodes are 30 minutes)
"No job too tough, no adventure too baffling."
I Love A Mystery was a program about three adventure seeking buddies who ran a detective agency and traveled the world. The series was written in great style by Carlton E. Morse. The show was first aired in 1939. It lasted until 1944, then took 5 years off, it came back in 1949 and stayed on air until 1952. Throughout its run it went back and forth from 15 minute to 30 minute shows.

The three friends are: Jack Packard, Doc Long and Reggie York. They met as mercenary soldiers fighting the Japanese in China. Later, they met again in San Francisco, and they formed the (alphabetically prominent) A-1 Detective Agency. Their motto was "No job too tough, no adventure too baffling." The trio would go to far off lands, explore mysteries both perplexing and supernatural, and basically just get into adventures of daring do.Each character has a clear personality (and distinct voice, which really helps in radio.) Jack is a tough, intelligent, and charismatic man. Although the three are like the musketeers, Jack can be considered the group leader. He also doesn’t trust women, and rebuffs the advances of the many, many, beautiful and exotic women that show up week after week. Doc and Reggie are slightly less edgy characters. The Texas-born Doc is a hard-fighting, boastful, high-spirited character who provides comic relief. Reggie, an Englishman noted for his great strength, competes with Doc in trying to romance the women.

Carlton E. Morse, the show’s writer, is regarded as one of the best writers in radio. He created adventures that spanned the different genres of radio, from mystery, horror, adventure, suspense, as well as placing these stories in new and interesting locales or just bizarre plotlines (the country of Nicaragua protested the storyline “Temple of Vampires”) Morse’s greatest accomplishment in the program was to create great characters with good chemistry and place them in horrible situations (horrible for Jack, Doc and Reggie, but fun for us.) Jack, Doc and Reggie were played by a number of actors over the years. Jack was played by: Michael Raffetto, Russell Thorson, Jay Novello, and John McIntire. Doc Long was portrayed by Barton Yarborough and Jim Boles. Walter Paterson and Tony Randall preformed as Reggie.
A follow-on a series, I Love Adventure, aired in 1948. It followed post-war adventures of Jack, Doc, and Reggie, now being directed by the Twenty-One Old Men of Gramercy Park, an extra-governmental organization of some power. Sadly, I Love Adventure ran for only 13 episodes.
