E44. The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe: The Case of the Vanishing Shells (2/2/1951)

Season 1, Ep. 44

Join host, Carl Amari, for a radio re-broadcast of The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe. Featuring vocal talent by Sydney Greenstreet.

Starring Sydney Greenstreet as Rex Stout's fictional armchair detective, Nero Wolfe. The series was based on Stout's principal characters but not his stories, airing from October 20, 1950 to April 27, 1951, on NBC, it is regarded as the series that is most responsible for popularizing Nero Wolfe on radio. The series had gained recognition through associating each episode with a notable fictional mystery author. However, these authors typically had little say in the series scripts that were associated with their name. Regardless, The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe rose to prominence through the guided efforts of famed author and series host, John Dickson Carr.

Originally airing 2/2/1951, get ready for this week's new adventure in "The Case of the Vanishing Shells," with Nero Wolfe!
