Mystery House was named for "that strange publishing firm owned by Dan and Barbara Glenn, where every new novel is acted out by the Mystery House staff before it is accepted for publication."  An interesting premise, although in reality little is known about the show, including whether the publishing company or the Glenns themselves even existed.  Details are sketchy, but it appears the show began airing in 1929 and was still being broadcast as late as 1951, though not in a continuous run.  In any event, surviving episodes are rare and quite entertaining.

Please note that the audio for some episodes is of poor quality, even after extensive professional processing.  Still, we are offering them here for posterity's sake and hope you enjoy them.  Episodes are about half an hour long.
