Bring on more material. We have raised a family listening to your cd’s (literally). Just returned from a 10 hr vacation drive with our “kids” (now 34 & 31). Guess what we listened to all the way? They never get old but we would love more new ones!!!     Yeah, i forgot to mention that. On that 10 hr trip last week we decided to make a vacation trip to Cape Cod for no other influences other than the entertainment your series of mysteries have...

I hope everyone can link to the article I posted in the link, as follows: If the link doesn't work enter in Google or any search engine "Pair Guilty Of Mutiny And Murder Shrimp Boat Crewmen Face Life Terms In Captain's Death" + "Orlando Sentinel" I'm almost certain it describes the VERY SAME shrimp boat murder incident that Steve mentions as inspiration in the above liner notes! Please check it out because these two demons definitely pulled some Five Fathom Rip business off the coast of Florida. Aside from that, 5FR is certainly in my top 3 Steve Oney mysteries. It's just such a perfect thriller story. You can taste the brine and culture of Cape Cod within much like you can in all of the Cape Cod Mysteries but Five Fathom really nails it. And as stories go in the suspense genre, this one is so scary but so classy. Anyone,like me, who is fed up with the current torture porn out there can always reach for the antidote by pulling Five Fathom Rip off of the shelf. Good for all generations, timeless and holds up, but possibly, and sadly, peerless today. In parting I wanted to send my love and admiration to the CCRMT folks from further in land (Philadelphia, in fact). And also had a question to Steve, Debbie or whoever could answer it but if I recall correctly it seems Steve Oney indicated he was retiring Underhill and Scofield characters of course and that he had a new one he was working on? Might I guess or suggest that the formidable Peter Millan (spelling?) hopefully be the voice of this new character? He is more of a newcomer compared to the other CCRMT leading stars we all love like the amazing Stephen Russell and Neil McGarry just to name two. But Millan has been quite impressive as Helms Kriegle,Ricky Robusto and a couple others. Please Mr. Oney post an exclusive update on the mysterious new character! Well that's all for now. See yall next time it rolls in. Also just ordered The Final Case tah day! Nick in Philly...

As for the mysteries, I fell in love with Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater when a young boy in high school who struggled at times to fall asleep. I would put in a cassette into my radio/cassette player and listen, captivated. I’ve loved them since and want to introduce my young boys to the mysteries as we travel across country this summer. On a previous trip, they fell in love with Carlton E. Morse’s “The Thing That Cries...

WALLACE WARREN O’HARA (1921-2014)...

  It was with a heavy heart that I learned yesterday of the passing of Wallace W. O’Hara, known as Wally to his many  friends, known as Doctor Alexander Scofield to his legion of devoted fans and followers of Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater. I first met Wally back in 1982 when he showed up for an open audition at the Cape Cod Community College to try out for parts in our fledgling, grassroots theater group whose goal...

Annie- I just noticed this was coming from Ms. Oney, I’m assuming you are the spouse of Steven Thomas. What a pleasure to hear directly from a member of the team that kept such a cool thing alive and executed it so well. CCRMT is great example of modern storytelling and I look forward to sharing it with my young son. My parents bought me the cassette collection of your mysteries when I was about 12 and it...

To be honest I ordered Don’t Touch That Dial as much for the music as much as I did for the story, as I read that it was on the level of Shooting Star and Seven Mile Bend which I also have.  They are AWESOME.  I think music is so important in productions like this and Mark Birmingham is a...

A grandfather meets once a week over lunch with his six-year-old grandson to tell him a story he is making up about a Cape Cod mouse.  These lunchtime sessions are secretly recorded, and now, Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater listeners can hear  the wonderful results.            Not a book-on-tape.  More than a radio mystery. ‘The Mouse Made of Dough’ is a charming Christmas story and a child’s first thriller for all ages to enjoy.  ...

I'm 17 and unfortunately I missed the age of the radio drama. Captain Underhill is by far my favorite series, book, show, or otherwise. Thank you all so much for producing these tales so that I can experience some of what I missed by being born 20 years too late. I'm so thankful to everyone who helped to create the Captain Underhill Mysteries, and all of the Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater works. Thank you for your time...
