Adventures of Ellery Queen, The

The Adventures of Ellery Queen was heard on all three networks from 1939 to 1948.
With Hugh Marlowe in the title role, Ellery Queen was introduced in The Adventures of Ellery Queen on CBS radio June 18, 1939, running until September 22, 1940. In 1942, the series moved to NBC, airing until 1944. From 1945 to 1947, it was heard once again on CBS, returning to NBC in 1947 and then ABC (1947-48). The premise was that a mystery would be dramatized but then interrupted when a panel of celebrities would attempt to solve the mystery.

During the 1970s, syndicated radio fillers, Ellery Queen's Minute Mysteries, began with an announcer saying, "This is Ellery Queen..." and then outlining a case in one minute. The radio station encouraged callers to solve the mystery and win a sponsor's prize. Once they had a winner, the solution part of the spot would be played as confirmation.

  1. Hi! Although this is an excellent collection, it has several errors:

    Ellery_Queen_43-01-16_108_Mr_Short_and_Mr_Long.mp3 is actually Foul Tip" and announced as such in the opening minute.

    is actually an episode of "Author, Author" which happens to feature a Queen story entitled "Two Thousand and One Dollar Watch"

    Both of the actual episodes with the erroneous titles are identified as "lost"


  2. Well, Bob...can't argue with the price nor with the excellent selection here.
