Tammy Grimes had a successful Broadway career and appeared in 27 episodes of CBS Radio Mystery Theater as host in the show's last season.
She starred in 27 RMT episodes, including the 5-night Nefertiti epic that premiered in 1979, before taking over as series host for a badly ailing E.G. Marshall in 1982. Besides Nefertiti, a favorite Grimes episode was "The God Killer" from 1976, in which she played a creepy murderess.
Ms. Grimes's daughter, Amanda Plummer, made five RMT appearances, including the last two installments of the 1982 Les Misérables adaptation. Ms. Plummer also had the lead in "To Be an Empress," the second-to-last RMT episode before her mother took over as host.
