Podcast #1 The Mysterious Travelor
Summary: THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER first rode the rails on Mutual in 1943 and was heard for the next nine years without a sponsor. Maurice Tarplin portrayed the mysterious traveler for the entire run. The shows opened with a shrieking locomotive roaring down the tracks. You, the listener, are a passenger along with another passenger, who insists on telling you a weird tale. The tale ends as the time the train reaches the next stop, with Maurice Tarplin's promise of another tale, next time you're on the train.
