“Another case for Nick Carter, Master Detective!”

As I write this post, I’m staring at three copies of a CD collection containing eighteen episodes of the OTR series Nick Carter, Master Detective (pictured to your left). I received these as freebies a good while back from Radio Spirits’ Mark Tepper, who mistakenly thought I contributed the liner notes to the collection—it’s actually a re-release of a set that was previously available only on cassette. (I did have four copies…but I gave one to my good friend and Oldie compadre Rodney Bowcock.) Faithful TDOY readers might remember an essay I wrote on this long-running Mutual radio series (1943-55) back in the halcyon Salon Blog days.

Because these three copies have been on my desk for what seems like an eternity and are serving no other purpose that gathering dust, I have decided to award these fabulous prizes to three lucky individuals who need only submit their mailing addresses to me via e-mail. I will send the CDs to the winners via Media Mail…because I’m currently pinching pennies here at Rancho Yesteryear. Now, I’m optimistically expecting a good-sized response to this contest, so the winners will be chosen via a random number generating system…but should it happen that I only get three entries—well, it will be the easiest contest those three people ever entered.

The deadline to stake your claim to one of these is midnight on Thursday, May 20, 2010—Friday morning, once I’ve rose and shone, I will select the winners and notify them via e-mail. So if you’d like to get some free old-time radio or are a big pulp detective fiction fan, you don’t want to miss out. (One entry per person, please.) It’s all part of the fun here at Thrilling Days of Yesteryear!

I'm in, Ivan. This would be a fab addition to my OTR collection.
