Top Secret

Ryan Ellett
 

We received a small set from the Cobalt Club's Geezer for distribution as a Maintained Set. The series is Top Secret, a 1950 post-war espionage program (not the early '80s Zucker Brothers film!). I've only listened to one episode so far. There are only 20 episodes in this set so just a small handful of volunteers should be able to get through the second-listening duties in short order. If you'd like a batch of shows (I usually send out 5 per listener) let me know. Anyone interested in writing a show summary or performer bio get in touch with me as well and we could have this ready for an August release!

I can listen, if you like to this show or whatever else you may have in the queue.  I don't mind trying a performer bio.. but writing one up will depend on wether or not I can find a good amount of information on the particular person.

On a side note we lost Olivia De Haviliand who died today at the age of 104.  She was one of the last survivors of the Golden age of movies.

Richard's list represents most of the episodes. The OTRR Maintained set will also have the 10-4-1940 episode and four duplicates that feature only the dramatic portions, i.e. the recordings before the music and sound effects were inserted. A total of 19 files. Martin Grams will be providing the dates from the scripts because it sounds like the generally available dates are questionable some weeks.

Do we know that there were only 19 shows.  I ask because I like to annotate the folders with the number of total shows.  Also, do we know if the missing shows are out there and/or available?

We do not know for sure, Jerry has 19 listed of which he has 17, but his numbers are not always accurate. It appears he has two partial episodes 9-1-1950 (The Drug of Death) and 9-8-1950 (Lighter than Metal) that Don does not have in this set he shared. Martin's scripts will be more definitive. Richard, you might check your copy of 9-1 called No Music. That may not be the title but rather indicate it is a rehearsal, which is what Jerry indicates his copy is. Let me know, that may be one we need to add to the set.
