    RADIO DRAMA AT ITS BEST

    Those who may remember how eagerly listeners anticipated their favorite old-time radio dramas may also recall the frissons of excitement felt when listening to 'I Love A Mystery.' Surely it was one of the most popular programs on radio. Writer/director Steven Thomas Oney has recalled that concept and now gives listeners a mystery story read by a full cast, enhanced by music and sound effects. These sound effects, I might add, are very fine, especially if one recalls those used on the radio. Remember the rattling of metal sheets for thunder? Somehow, listening can be more entertaining than seeing as it gives us an opportunity to run mental pictures through our minds - scenes of the crime, faces of the protagonists, etc. These impressions are often more compelling than what might be seen on a screen. For me, this is the case when listening to the stories presented in the Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater. Oney's protagonists, retired police captain Waverly Underhill and his pal, Doctor Scofield, are both amusing and affecting (a little reminiscent of Holmes and Watson). 'Captain Underhill Uncoils the Mystery' is a double treat as the CD holds two stories. The first, 'The Whirlpool' finds Underhill and Scofield on vacation. It's not at all as restful as they had hoped. Once a convict gets them in their grips, they may wish they'd never left home. Little do they know there's more in store - yes, a whirlpool. In 'The Cobra in the Kindergarten,' the second tale, we find that the reptile of the title is much more than your ordinary snake in the grass. There is a deadly cobra spied by a school. Underhill has never received an SOS call like this before. Will he be able to vanquish the viper? A highly recommended listening experience.
