Under "I did not know this. . . "

"(Orson) Welles's first radio performance was on the Todd station, an adaptation of Sherlock Holmes that he also wrote."


  1. I have the record (Radiola MR-1036 Crime Series #4 1974) The Mercury Theatre on the Air "The Immortal Sherlock Holmes" starring Orson Welles, exactly as heard on CBS, September 25, 1938. (Twelfth Show of the Series - Plus late news bulletins from Europe on the War situation. - but I no longer have a record player!

    1. However, the one I refer to is from around 1926-1930 and was done while he was at Todd Seminary.
      To have either would be a treat.
