Shows similar to Operation Luna, The Red Planet etc

Postby lottoman » Tue Jul 14, 2020 9:40 am

I just finished the Operation Luna series and its various iterations.
Terrific stuff!

Are there any more similar type shows--not necessarily sci-fi--that are episodic like those shows?
Thank You for any suggestions.

Neither Operation Luna and Red Planet were "old time radio" shows. They appeared as novels (or movies) much after the end of "the golden age of radio":

Old time radio had several "episodic" programs. Some were early science fiction offerings. For more information (and examples), visit
