This upload contains all 1399 episodes of the CBS Radio Mystery Theater. Hosted by E.G. Marshall (and for the last 11 months, Tammy Grimes) and produced by Himan Brown, both veterans of radio from the Golden Age, the Mystery Theater was CBS's attempt to revive radio drama from 1974-1982. Despite the small budget allocated by CBS, the show is still excellent, with great acting, quality production and many excellent stories. So join me for another adventure in the macabre. Pleasant dreams....
The dates, episode numbers and titles are believed to be correct based on available information, but any corrections are welcome.
Disclaimer: By uploading these files, I make no claim to ownership or copyright. These recordings have been acquired from publicly available sources on the Internet, and my goal has been to put together a collection of every available episode where possible. I will add to these collections if I discover new episodes or if any new episodes become available. Additionally, while I tried to put together a collection that contains the best version of each episode that I could, there may be better copies of some recordings available from collectors and dealers, and I encourage you to reach out to them if you are so inclined. We OTR enthusiasts owe a huge debt to those who have worked tirelessly to discover, acquire and preserve these recordings. My role here has been to organize the files I have, verify the dates, episode numbers and titles as best I could from available sources, and correct and rename the files accordingly. My goal is to ensure these excellent artistic expressions of our past are preserved for this and all future generations, and I hope that by uploading all of my files here in a uniform and organized system, they will be easily accessible for all.

Thanks for taking the time to upload all of these. Some fascinating episodes, especially ones based on old literary horror stories.
Mostly entertaining with the exception of the obligatory sermonising pc twee and cringe touchy feeliy ones.
Again, thanks. Really enjoy this well acted and well produced series.
Is it my imagination, or have commercials & news broadcasts “at the top of the hour” been cut from several episodes ? Love the shows, but also love the retro commercials & news.

This must have been a labour of love.
Uploading the entire series of CBS Mystery Theatre must have been a labour of love. I wish to thank you on behalf of not only myself, but also all of the other people who have not yet been entertained by these classic radio dramas from the past.
