12/5/1943 The Mysterious Traveler sets out
Each episode began with Maurice Tarplin announcing: "This is The Mysterious Traveler, inviting you to join me on another journey into the strange and terrifying. I hope you will enjoy the trip . . . that it will thrill you a little and chill you a little. So settle back, get a good grip on your nerves, and be comfortable . . . if you can . . . ."
The Mystery Writers of America gave the Mutual Broadcasting System's show an Edgar for best radio drama.
