Mystery Theater – Five Minute Mysteries is an exciting return to the radio drama of yesteryear.
This app contains 48 episodes of the classic The Five Mysteries Program, which aired on the Mutual Broadcasting System from August 10, 1947 to March 27, 1950. Cast members included Jackson Beck, Staats Cotsworth, Michael Fitzmaurice, Timmy Hyler, Abby Lewis, Frank Lovejoy, and Ian MacAllister. The famous Rosa Rio played the memorable organ music.
Each episode presents a story -- of greed, jealousy, desperation, theft, larceny, and even... murder! All the clues needed to solve the crime are given to the audience, leaving only one question to ponder: whodunit?
This app not only catalogs the episodes of this amazing series and allows you to see which shows you have listened to, but it also lets you play along. At the crucial moment, it will ask YOU to provide the vital information needed to solve the crime; then wait in suspense to see if you are correct. If you solve the cases you will earn points, and eventually get promoted. Listen alone, or with others, it is literally fun for the whole family.
