The Mercury Theatre on the Air

The Mercury Theatre on the Air
The finest radio drama of the 1930’s was The Mercury Theatre on the Air, a show featuring the acclaimed New York drama company founded by Orson Welles and John Houseman. In its brief run, it featured an impressive array of talents, including Agnes Moorehead, Bernard Herrmann, and George Coulouris. The show is famous for its notorious War of the Worlds broadcast, but the other shows in the series are relatively unknown. This site has many of the surviving shows, and will eventually have all of them.

Someone was bitchin' about a lack of 30's radio shows (Eb) so here ya go. Here is a direct link to the torrent. WARNING! The files total 1.7GB so make sure you have some space!
