I've collected 16 of RM's old radio shows and posted them on my Box.net site. These radio shows are in MP3 format.

This post should be in the "FAQ, Resources, and Links" forum, but only Admin can do that.

The Man in the Moon
"X Minus One" was an excellent half-hour scifi anthology series that aired on the NBC radio network in the mid 50s. This Episode, "The Man in the Moon", concerns an SOS heard during the broadcast of a Federal Missing Persons bulletin. What's so unusual about this SOS is that it's found to be originating from the moon! This episode was originally broadcast on May 29, 1955. Ross Martin plays the part of Charlie.

Marionettes, Inc.
This show is from the scifi anthology series entitled "Dimension X", and aired August 30, 1951. The story is set in 1990, and husbands that want the night out have androids that can replace them when they are away (Not a bad idea, really). Ross Martin plays the part of the B2 android in this episode.

Mother
This is an episode of "Radio City Playhouse" which aired September 11, 1948. In this program, Mary Adams is a shy woman in NYC who has no plans for New Year's Eve since she has to take care of her sick mother. A very young Ross Martin (only 28) plays Harry Wilson in this episode.

The Night before Christmas
In this episode of "Radio City Playhouse", Ross Martin plays a newspaper editor named Tex Court. This episode aired on December 25, 1949. In this amusing radio show, Tex Court (Ross Martin) sends his reporter and photographer on a quest to acquire two goats on Christmas Eve.

The 36th Man
"CBS Radio Mystery Theater" originally broadcast this episode on November 14, 1974. According to Hebrew legend, in every generation there must be 36 saintly men in the world for it to go on. Satan sets out to seduce and corrupt the newest memeber of this brotherhood. Ross Martin plays a shopkeeper named Harry Cohen, and he is featured very prominently in this radio episode...after all, he is the 36th man.

Porgy, Bess, and George
Ross Martin portrayed George Gershwin in this episode of "An American Gallery" originally broadcast circa 1961. This radio show revolves around George Gershwin's inspiration for his famous opera Porgy and Bess. In this program, you'll get the rare opportunity to listen to the singing talent of Ross Martin.

The Doll
This is another show from the "CBS Radio Mystery Theater". The plot concerns a professor who uses a voodoo doll to win the affection of a young woman. This radio show was originally broadcast on October 10, 1974 and costars Joanne Linville...you may remember her as the Romulan commander that had the hots for Mr. Spock.

File 2218
This is an episode of "Cloak and Dagger" which aired May 7, 1950.
This is the story of the WWII special governmental agency, the OSS, or Office of Strategic Services. Its mission was to develop and maintain spy networks throughout Europe and into Asia, while giving aid to underground partisan groups and developing espionage activities for Allied forces overseas. Ross Martin plays a german spy who helps an american spy infiltrate Austria.

The Bazaloff Papers
An episode of "Mr. Moto" which aired June 17, 1951.

Sabotage
Another episode of "Mr. Moto" which aired July 8, 1951.

Shanghaied
This is an episode of "X Minus One" which aired September 1, 1955. It's his wedding day and our hero is Shanghaied. He's hoping it's just a trick his buddy's have pulled on him but he's actually kidnapped to work on the spaceship on a 15-year journey. Can the rich young man bribe his way out or threaten with the authority of his father?

The Zero Hour
"The Zero Hour" was a half-hour anthology series hosted by Rod Serling in 1974. Each week, a different actor would guest star on 5 episodes of the series. On the last week that the series aired (July 22, 1974), Ross Martin was the guest star. Interestingly, these "Zero Hour" radio shows also include their original commercials. The episodes are entitled Corpse Takes the Stand, Carnival of Menace, Chicago John and the Glitter People, Smoke Screen, and The Holdout.

And STILL no word on when we will get a new video. You do remember that making Pet wait too long is NOT a good thing right?

Ross Martin made several appareances on Old Time Radio shows and Ptolemy was a dear and found some of them and posted them so we can listen to them. I have been a fan of OTR since my oldest sister got me hooked on The Shadow I have heard most of these on the radio (one of the stations in my town airs them every night)

You must be very young! Teasing of course. Not everyone knows about the radio programs that Ross did. Ptolemy, have you been able to find any of the Superman episodes he did? He was the...narrator? of the final season I think. Pettie remembers for sure which season it was.

Oh, and the Ross Interview or the Zicree interview, is an interview M. Zicree did with Ross for his book about The Twilight Zone. It is about an hour long and very nice. Zicree had photos from RM's appearances on TZ and RM was so surprised to see them. Very nice look at the real man, IMO.

Ignoring? Definitely maybe, Apple.

But how much longer can I ignore the inevitable...how much longer?
