The House Of Mystery
The House of Mystery was a ghost chasing type of story with a story teller who
called himself Roger Elliott. The first sounds heard were the spooky organ music
welcoming the audience, primarily children. There were two children in attend-
ance and the host would address his remarks to them and tell his story. Each
show was a dramatization of HIS personal experiences as a ghost chaser and
ghost buster. These were not terrifying or frightening stories but were intended
to amuse the kids and keep them buying Post Toasties, the sponsor.
This kids show began as a daily 15 minute broadcast early in 1945 running for
several months. Then beginning in Sep 1945 it ran for two more seasons, with
breaks for the summer, in a thirty minute format.
A very rare program, since there are less than a handful in circulation.
