Post ToastiesHouse of Mystery is a light mystery and suspense show that would be acceptable for some younger listeners. The show began as a 15 minute serial, but after almost a year moved to a 30 minute format.

Roger Elliot, played by John Griggs and then later an unidentified actor, was the Mystery Man and your host to The House of Mystery. He leads the listener through a "story telling session" with kids asking questions about the tale.

"Extra thin and tender crisp" Post Toasties sponsored House of Mystery. The listeners are warned not to give their children coffee and to serve a glass of Wholesome Postum instead.

This is a rare mystery show and these are some of the few episodes known to have survived. This series is not to be confused with Mystery House or Mystery Playhouse, hosted by Pete Lorre.

    How glad I am to find this collection of the HOUSE OF MYSTERY series from 1944 or so. THE BAT BOY is here, with all the commercials, and average sound quality. This is certainly the best HOUSE OF MYSTERY show ever, and the most spine tingling. The other shows are good, but are really aimed at a child audience. CECIL (really Cecilia) ROY is prominently featured in the "child" cast, she was really an adult who did little girl and boy voices. She did the voice of Little Lulu in the 1940s Paramount cartoons, and also was the little girl on THE COMIC WEEKLY MAN radio shows. This is a short collection, as just a handful of the HOUSE OF MYSTERY shows have survived, but you must get it for THE BAT BOY if nothing else!

    A program I enjoyed in the 40s that was on Sunday afternoon was called "The House of Mystery" which featured The Mystery Man, Roger Elliot who gathered a group of children and told them of a mysterious happening, supposedly caused by some supernatural force. He would expose it for the kids as a natural cause. Really fond memories of this series.
