MISSING EPISODES OF THE VOYAGE OF THE SCARLET QUEEN

MISSING "SCARLET QUEEN" TREASURES
PART I OF II
By Stewart Wright
One of the great Golden Age of Radio high adventure series was Mutual's 1947-48
The Voyage of the Scarlet Queen
While it only ran for 36 broadcasts, it is fondly remembers for its
taut, action-packed scripts;
great sound effects;
stirring musical score;
sometimes over-the-top acting, and
memorable episode titles.
All but two of the broadcasts have been in circulation for many years.
Broadcasts for episodes seven and ten have not yet been found.
Early in 2016, I learned that the scripts for these Episodes exist and I gained temporary access to them.
I have written plot summaries for each of the missing episodes.
This issue of Radio Recall features the summary for
"The Ninth Niece in the Street of Weeping Women"
which was broadcast on August 14, 1947.
(The next issue will include the summary for episode ten.) . . .
These plot summaries are being published exclusively in Radio Recall
the bi-monthly journal of the Metro Washington Old-Time Radio Club;
I won't be publishing them elsewhere.
