JIM W. WRITES:
The episodes are fantastic. I’ve been a fan of Cape Cod Mystery Radio Theater ever since I was young and I found a cassette copy of “The Curse of the Whales Tooth.” I’ve always had a strong imagination…still do, and it has made me a huge fan of radio plays, everything from The Shadow and The Green Hornet all the way up to modern productions. For as long as I can remember, I scrounged Cracker Barrel gift shops, book stores, library sales, etc., on the hunt for radio plays. Old time radio like one’s from the 30’s and 40’s were relatively easy to find, but Cape Cod Radio Theater episodes were a rare find in Tennessee. Whenever I would find one, I would spring like Captain Underhill’s cobra in the kindergarten. In my younger days I spent many years as a touring actor with various theater companies across the country, and your shows made the long road trips more bearable. I once toured the Pacific Northwest with a theater company and listened to “The Buoy,” and the one about the fisherman who has a crew member try and murder everyone on board….until the killer is eaten by sharks. After listening to those, whenever I would hear a boat in a harbor or the clang clang on actual buoys out in the water, I would remember the show and get fresh chills. Plus, “Playback,” and “The Caller On Line One,” made sleeping in the dark a difficult thing to do for a night or two.
I guess you could say that I’ve been a fan of Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater for as long as I can remember, and plan to purchase another couple of episodes after I send off this emal. So, again, thank you for all that you do. Thank you for being an entertaining release from the daily stresses of life which allow me to take a temporary imagination excursion to a fog filled night on old Cape Cod.
