What would it take to recapture the glory of the golden age of radio and still incorporate the stars and even stories of a more modern time? This query was answered extremely well in 1980 by one program, 20 of its episodes collected in Mutual Radio Theater, Volume 2 from Radio Archives!
At a time when radio drama was attempting a comeback, The Sears Radio Theater made a move and name change to Mutual, becoming the Mutual Radio Theater. Mutual answered the age old question of blending the classic with the modern by doing just that. Producing a show that put legends of the Radio Drama era to work side by side with modern up and coming stars of television and film!
The Mutual Radio Theater featured stories written by radio greats such as Arch Oboler, Norman Corwin, and Elliot Lewis. These scribes brought their formidable talents to bear on this kaleidoscopic show, providing solid scripts for every genre the show represented five nights a week. Oboler’s atmospheric twists, Corwin’s realistic, often revealing takes on American life, and Lewis’ understanding of what made listeners laugh, cry, and cringe blended well with the work of modern storytellers to make Mutual Radio Theater an instant classic.
Presenting the entire run of Mutual Radio Theater in five collections, Radio Archives proudly presents 20 Stereo episodes in Mutual Radio Theater, Volume 2! Each show is presented in the highest quality and features writing and performances from the best of classic and more modern entertainment!

Every week the Archives receives comments like this. “If Radio Archives begins offering download versions of its products, please let me know.” Radio Archives has been offering all of our audio sets in two formats for the last year. The very popular Audio CDs and MP3 Digital Downloads.
For well over a decade, Radio Archives has been known for our Sparkling audio quality of our Old Time Radio collections and it’s no wonder. We insist upon finding the absolute best quality masters, then carefully restoring them so that they retain all of the audio luster of the original recordings with none of the crackle, pops, hiss, or muffling so often heard in radio shows from other sources. Now, with Digital Downloads, Radio Archives gives you the same quality of work and restoration in each set. That’s why every classic radio collection you download from Radio Archives comes to you as a zip file containing each individual show, encoded as a mono 128 kpbs MP3 file with a sampling rate of 44,100. As audiophiles know 128 kbps Mono is the same quality as 256 kbps Stereo.
