Perry Mason Audio Dramas on Sale

One show that’s been requested that we won’t be able to do on our podcast because of a lack of complete story lines is Perry Mason.  However,  a modern radio drama version of Perry Mason has been released by the Colonial Radio Theater in Boston based on the original stories by Erle Stanley Gardener.

Two of these sets are available through Audible for $3.91 (for audible members) but only through March 29 at 11 a.m. at which point they’ll return to the normal price of $4.89 each, which is still a pretty good deal compared to some of the BBC Sets out there.

I’ve not listened to the Perry Mason sets myself (though I did pick them up as part of the sale), but I have listened Colonial Theater’s Father Brown set which was a very nice professional adaptation, and I look  forward to listening to the Perry Mason.  Below are the dramas of interest:

Perry Mason and the Case of the Sulky Girl

Perry Mason and the Case of the Velvet Claws

The Blue Cross, The Secret Garden, The Queer Feet, and The Arrow of Heaven: The Father Brown Mysteries

EP0371: The Abbotts: The Dead-White Lifeboat

Claudia Morgan

A woman asks Pat to pretend to be her husband in order to save her life.

Original Air Date: April 24, 1955
