Zero Hour.

In between Twilight Zone and Night Gallery, our man Rod hosted Mutual Radio's abortive competitor to the long running CBS Radio Mystery Theater (hosted by E. G. Marshall). The first season featured 5 thirty minute episodes running from Monday through Friday, featuring continuing stories. This format was less than popular, as many listeners would miss an installment, often the climax of the weeks' story on Friday. For the second season, self-contained episodes were used, but the show was badly promoted and died a quiet death.
There's 150 episodes split into 3 zipped files. This SHOULD keep you busy for a while......
