The Mysterious Traveler
The Mysterious Traveler was a popular old time radio show ranging from fantasy to science fiction to mystery and suspense. It ran from 1943 to 1952. One of the most popular episodes to air was Behind The Locked Door, which was repeated often due its extreme popularity. The Mysterious Traveler radio show was also made into a magazine and a comic series.
