Mutual Radio Theater
Volume 2

What would it take to recapture the glory of the golden age of radio and still incorporate the stars and even stories of a more modern time? This query was answered extremely well in 1980 by one program, 20 of its episodes collected in Mutual Radio Theater, Volume 2 from Radio Archives!

At a time when radio drama was attempting a comeback, The Sears Radio Theater made a move and name change to Mutual, becoming the Mutual Radio Theater. Mutual answered the age old question of blending the classic with the modern by doing just that. Producing a show that put legends of the Radio Drama era to work side by side with modern up and coming stars of television and film!

The Mutual Radio Theater featured stories written by radio greats such as Arch Oboler, Norman Corwin, and Elliot Lewis. These scribes brought their formidable talents to bear on this kaleidoscopic show, providing solid scripts for every genre the show represented five nights a week. Oboler’s atmospheric twists, Corwin’s realistic, often revealing takes on American life, and Lewis’ understanding of what made listeners laugh, cry, and cringe blended well with the work of modern storytellers to make Mutual Radio Theater an instant classic.

Presenting the entire run of Mutual Radio Theater in five collections, Radio Archives proudly presents 20 Stereo episodes in Mutual Radio Theater, Volume 2! Each show is presented in the highest quality and features writing and performances from the best of classic and more modern entertainment!

5 of 5 What might have been... April 1, 2024
Reviewer: Ivan G Shreve Jr from Winterville, GA United States  
I remember the huge fanfare in 1979 -- it made the front page of the Sunday PARADE magazine -- about the MUTUAL RADIO THEATRE but apart from the production that featured Jim Jordan I didn't get to listen much (the station carrying THEATRE wasn't particularly diligent in the scheduling, a fate that also befell THE CBS RADIO MYSTERY THEATRE). So I'm finally getting the opportunity to revisit this wonderful program courtesy of Radio Archives...while at the same time lamenting how we let radio drama and comedy slip away from us in this country (as Virginia Gregg once remarked, "The British know a good medium when they hear it").
