(1933 - 34)
Close your eyes and imagine strangely
exotic violin music... the distant tinkling of a piano...
flowing from your radio into the cool evening dark of
some small town or isolated home, as the the voice of
the announcer proudly recites.....
- Model 290 - circa 1932
Brought to you by the makers of Majestic Radio, Maurice
Joachim narrated and presented mysterious stories without
the assistance of any other actors. Assisted only
by sound effects, Joachim played all the roles.

The show had a none-to-subtle, but interesting link to
selling the Majestic Radio Company's radio and tubes.
After having a significant share of the consumer radio
market in the 1920's, sales of the Majestic radios were
slipping, and the radio program appears to have been a
clever marketing ploy to increase sales, hence the opening
"In the majesty of motion, from the boundless
everywhere, comes the magic name - Majestic... mighty
monarch of the air!"
