New Adventures of Nero Wolfe, The (OTRR Certified)


Nero Wolfe, also known as the galloping gourmet, was an armchair detective. He rarely left the house; instead his assistant, Archie Goodwin, would collect the facts and report back. Nero Wolfe would probably not have taken on many cases had he not needed the clients’ money to pay for his two true passions: fine food and the collecting of orchids. The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe is based on a series of books begun in 1934 by Rex Stout. There were two previous incarnations of the radio series: The Adventures of Nero Wolfe which ran in 1943 and 1944 and The New Adventures of (aka The Amazing) Nero Wolfe which ran in 1945 to 1946. Very few episodes from these earlier series are in circulation today. There was also one later series created by the Canadian Broadcasting Company in 1982.

Many thanks to the Old Time Radio Researchers Group for preserving this great series for future generations to enjoy!

  1. Excellent quality on the Sidney Greenstreet
    Nero Wolfe episodes. Much better than what I
    have in my collection now.

  2. The links (under Miscellaneous Undocumented) to Not Quite Dead Enough, pt 1 and The Doorbell Rang, pt 2 appear to be broken. Are you able to provide these?

    Thanks for the great resource!

  3. I've enjoyed listening to some of the CBC episodes-many thanks.

  4. cheers mate,

    but the already Canadian 'cotton wool chewing' voice
    lowered down to 32kbps is far too difficult for European
    ears to understand.


  5. Very clear sound! I love this series. Thank you for sharing!

  6. By the way.....it's C.B.C......Canadian Broadcasting Corporation...not Company......and NOT CANADIAN BS......I'd appreciate a re-do of that
