Don’t touch that dial! In March 2021 we presented the Hardboiled Radio Bundle, a new offer of vintage Old-Time Radio (OTR) crime drama from the Golden Age of Radio, 1939-51. These dozens of half-hour episodes featured Sherlock Holmes, Sam Spade, Philip Marlowe, Nero Wolfe, and the twist-filled suspense stories of Inner Sanctum, all remastered and re-engineered by publisher Nathan and Evan to sound crisp and new.

There were eleven imaginative and entertaining OTR thrillers in our Radio Sampler (retail value $33) as DRM-free MP3 audio files, from the series The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Adventures of Sam Spade, Detective, and The Whistler. (“I know many things, for I walk by night.”)

Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with twenty-eight more titles worth an additional $84, with more Sherlock Holmes and Sam Spade plus The Adventures of Philip Marlowe, The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe, and Inner Sanctum Mystery.

You can hear thousands of complete low-fidelity episodes from hundreds of OTR series at the Internet Archive and on fan sites like Old Time Radio Downloads and Old Radio World.

Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this offer’s designated charity, the Internet Archive. The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit library of millions of books, movies, software, music, websites, and more. The Archive is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts, including thousands of OTR episodes.
