“The Third Tower of Inverness” was actually “The Fourth Tower of Inverness”. I even remember airing that series while working at KUCI in the 70s. I still have the 1st generation reels the station received. No one there wanted them.

Boy, if somebody tries this looking at radio of the 1970's they'll have a real job on their hands. Besides those shows already mentioned, there are all the shows written and produced by ZBS. The Jack Flanders series, such as Moon Over Morocco, The Third Tower of Inverness, were produced throughout the 70's and into the 80's. Plus radio shows like Chicken Man. In the 80's ZBS produced the Ruby, the Galactic Gumshoe shows. I"m pretty sure ZBS is still producing shows. I don't think most here would lump them in with OTR, but they were definitely influenced by OTR but modernized. They were/are legitimate radio theater though, and I thought very well written and produced. I always lumped them in with NTR myself.
The beauty of writing a "taxonomy" article about a non-sciece subject is that the author gets to draw all the lines and set all the labels himself or herself. That's freedom!

Michael, if somebody writes an article on "The Silver Age of Radio". he or she will have the most trouble trying to decide what to include. It will be a lot of fun, but quite a challenge.

As long as we are discussing radio revivals we shouldn’t forget the Zero Hour narrated by Rod Serling.
I think the four programs that were part of the 1975 revival might be a good subject for an article entitled "The Silver Age of Radio." But the author would need to include CBS Radio Mystery Theater, and it would be a challenge to determine which of the 1400 or so episodes would be the most interesting to readers. In my opinion the best category of them is those that were based on a short story or a novel by a great writer like Henry James (there are several episodes based on his short stories).
