It's interesting how peoples tastes vary. I love Harry Nile and Sherlock Holmes, they are my mainstays, but Kerides the Thinker is in that lot and I would least like to see that one cancelled, so it was good to see Mr. Albert's response more are on the way. My 13 year old daughter had refused to listen to the shows with us, then a few weeks ago she decided to join us and heard Kerides. She fell in love and is now hooked on the broadcasts. Kerides is going to make a great Christmas present for her! Thank you all for the endless hours of entertainment you have provided our family!

As for what series that I would least like to see cancelled: definitely Kincaid the Strange Seeker. I like the show, and reminds me a little of Scooby Doo, as well as shows like Kolchak The Night Stalker and other shows dealing with the paranormal and the supernatural. One thing though, or a couple things that I would like to see in future Kincaid episodes though are him investigating werewolves and maybe crop circles, as those are things that I don't think he's investigated yet. Oh, and I would love to see what would happen if Kincaid either dated, went on a date with someone, or got a girlfriend. I mentioned Scooby Doo in my other post; I say that because Shaggy's had girlfriends in the past, so maybe Kincaid can start dating or something along those lines in the future. Heck, maybe Kincaid's girlfriend can be a ghost, or a witch, or an alien, or a werewolf, or something like that.

Reading some of the comments on the blog, it's good to know i'm not alone as far as younger people listening to Imagination Theater and old time radio shows. My first exposure to older radio dramas of any kind was the latter 1990s when I tuned into the local NPR station(KUOW FM in Seattle) and heard a few episodes of what was called Mystery Theater. It was very well done, and later I learned the episodes were part of a series from the 70s called CBS Radio Mystery Theater. In 2002 or 2003, I started listening to Imagination Theater(in Seattle it was on the old KNWX 770 at the time) and then in 2006 I got XM satellite radio and discovered Sonic Theater where they reran IT many times during the week. In addition to that, I found that Sonic Theater was running audio dramas I had never heard before like Colonial Radio Theater on the air from Boston, new frequency from LA and others. Then they changed names to Sirius XM Book Radio, but I still listened in. When I got my first MP3 player, and then an Ipod Touch, I looked for as many old time radio and CBSRMT episodes as I could online(thankfully there were many of both of them). I still listen to IT to this day, as well as old time radio, and it has inspired me partially to create my own stories that I post online as fan fiction or fan created stories. It's pretty fun and I get to control the characters fate and what happens in each story. By the way, specifically I am 27 years of age, so while i'm not in the 25 and under category of listeners, I am in the under 30 category.

I agree with Janet, with one exception. Without dating myself too much, I'm probably in the same age group as her parents, or close to it, and got enamored with OTR (I was occasionally listening to the CBSMT when it was still in production of all things!!) and audio drama when her parents may have been in high school or younger. To me, it's good that at least some of these 'youngsters' are interested in such things. There's hope that audio dramas and OTR may still be around for decades more at least. Otherwise, take care all and best wishes. TomK

Please don't cancel any of the shows! I have an extreme fondness for Raffles TGT and MFYM especially. Admittedly, I haven't heard much of Darnburough or the Rathe mysteries to have a well-rounded opinion of those. Hilary Caine and Kerides are both amusing - there are just times when the latter's music gets annoying. My sister and I have been avid fans since 2005, having caught the last bit of a MFYM episode on the car radio. We're part of the "under 25" age bracket of listeners, so there's quite alot of us younger folks out there who love old-time radio dramas. :)

I remember discovering IT back on Nov, 23 1996, when I heard "Gravtrak 449"(wasn't till March of 03 that I finally got to hear the end). Since then MFYM episodes have been my favorites. Alas, I love Kincaid and don't really care for your westerns and crime shows, 'cept for mebbe Harry. One criticism, perhaps on an upcoming episode, Michael should have an episode where biggie can air Kincaid's work. I will be listening as long as my heart, brain and ears hold out. Thanks IT crew.

There's not enough room for my commentary for I've been a listener/re-broadcaster/collector of "Imagination Theater" since 'Episode 1' "The Thing In The Woods"/Seattle Blues", I have witnessed the growth of all these Serial Shows; I've mourned and cried the loss of the gentle giant Phil Harper; Praised the entire cast crew and especially the writers bringing fresh, clean entertainment to the minds of many who listen. ALL the series are just plainly what Americans need to resurrect the good qualities of what Entertainment was, is and should be. THANK YOU for "ALL" the series, I can hear 'Phil' shouting from the hallway in the sky "Give 'em all a stage Jim". Drew Malone Raines III, Retired USMC Talk Show Host, LISTENER and FAN.

P.S. @Bonz "If only some genuine English radio actors were available in Seattle, these productions would be far more enjoyable." I strongly disagree. I am a big fan of Britcoms on the telly but for American audiences the "accents" on the radio shows are mild enough to be easily understood, unlike those of "genuine English radio actors".

Please don't cancel any of your fabulous shows. My faves are Harry Nile and Sherlock Holmes (I know, Sherlock is not included in this poll but I like it so much I had to mention it). Thank you for all the hours of entertainment you have given me through your broadcasts. :)

The Hilary Caine Mysteries is my favorite serial. But if Movies for Your Mind includes all the non-serial plays, then I would LEAST want MFYM cancelled. Those "stand alone" plays are the ones which usually come to mind when I describe IT to friends. The wide variety of those stories is impressive. I'm not sure if MFYM stories are still made -- seems like the new productions are serials.
