Molle Mystery Theatre Old Time Radio Program

½ hour mystery episodes


Featuring “the best in mystery and detective fiction”

The Molle Mystery Theater began on September 7, 1943 and lasted under several different names, formats, and networks until 1954. (This collection has up to 1948.) Molle was the sponsor:

It's smooth . . . so smooth . . .

Its slick . . . so slick . . .

It's a smooth smooth slick slick shave you get


The show featured classics by masters of mystery like Edgar Allen Poe to modern authors like Raymond Chandler and William Irish. The host of the program was Geoffrey Barnes, a self described “ connoisseur of mysteries”. The program had many radio professionals in the episodes, Elspeth Eric, Joseph Julien, Frank Lovejoy, and others all appeared. In 1947 Molle dropped its sponsorship, and the program changed its name to The Mystery Theatre and was sponsored by Sterling Drugs. In 1948 it moved to CBS, then in 1951 again changed its name to “Hearthstone of the Death Squad”.
