Orson Welles circa 1939Drama is derived from the Greek root "action and is often used interchangeably with the word theater, which consists of both tragedy and comedy.  Used colloquially to indicate a genre, drama often refers to shows that are serious in tone.  OTRCAT selected these shows to represent our collection of Drama old time radio shows.

Most drama shows are well written and are produced with fine radio actors such as Orson Welles.  Included in this anthology is shows from the series, The Chase, in each show there is a chase scene of some kind that are equally as thrilling today.  Diamond Dramas is another themed drama show whose plot revolves around those precious sparkly gemstones, also known as a girl’s best friend.  Curtain Time, Ford Theater and Hallmark Playhouse are impeccably produced high quality radio dramas.

Other shows include in the collection deal with dramas in the past and the future.  The Fifth Horseman is a somber post-apocalyptic show concerning the theme "what if an atomic war started; anti-bomb activists created it fearful of humanity’s annihilation during the Cold War.  Lest We Forget and You Are There are both historical dramas of American and World History.

In all this is a wonderful collection of dramatic old time radio shows with a sample from many of our most popular dramatic series.
