So much talent, so many voices. The CBS Radio Mystery Theater ran from 1974 to 1982. Prominent actors from the Golden Age of Radio, as well as film and television, performed on the series. Regular actors included Mason Adams, Ralph Bell, Kevin McCarthy, Arnold Moss, John Beal, Howard Da Silva, Keir Dullea, Morgan Fairchild, Veleka Gray, Jack Grimes, Fred Gwynne, Larry Haines, Paul Hecht, Celeste Holm, Kim Hunter, Mandel Kramer, Mercedes McCambridge, Tony Roberts, Norman Rose, Alexander Scourby, Marian Seldes, and Kristoffer Tabori.
I have started in on the initial design concepts for the first 8 cards of the series (#1 isn't shown here). The hope is that I can get at least 52 or more for the set. I am so excited to honor these actors, writers and hosts with these cards.

Casey Kasem ("The Headless Hessian," September 23, 1975)
