Some of the Best Mystery Theater episodes are written by Bob Juhren. If you are new to the Series or not, it is a Must to listen to ALL Bob Juhren episodes! In fact, if you are overwhelmed by choosing which CBS Radio Mystery Theater 1,399 episodes to select, just choose all the Bob Juhren authored ones to start!!


Could not agree more with Melaine comment. Bob Juhren, by far is consistently the best of the bunch. There are other great writers just as good, but some of them still turn in only fair scripts. Bob Juhren always produces a superior writing product.


My favorite CBSRMT writer by far.


I was 14 years old, it was a rainy Saturday, and I was already gloomy. I went down to visit my father (CBS RMT writer Bob Juhren) in his den. "David,how are you this morning," he asked. "I'm feeling kind'a blah," I responded, flopping into one of the den's comfortable armchairs. "Maybe this rainy day has you down," he suggested with a smile. "Nah, I think I was already down." After a minute or so, I asked... "Dad, wouldn't it be funny if the day was all rainy and dark because I was feeling blah, instead of the other way around?" He chuckled for a second, and then his face glazed over. His brows knitted, he grabbed a blank sheet of paper, which he tossed into his typewriter, and started pecking away in a fury. I quietly left, having learned early as a child of a writer that inspiration prefers solitude. That gloomy Saturday morning conversation produced my father's script "Tomorrow, Cloudy and Cold."

David Juhren

I love your story about your father. In fact, you're not a bad writer yourself. The picture you paint with your words is very vivid.


David, your father’s stories strum a sentimental chord in me too. I was raised in the Queensbury area of New York. As I listen to the stories on CBS RMT, my local settings come to life in my mind. I’m sure you were a big inspiration for your father in more ways than you think. Do you live in Glens Falls too?

Jacob Gifford

Sorry, Jacob, I hadn't seen your question. I've always lived down state, closer to our hometown (Lower Hudson Valley). But, having spent so much time in Glens Falls since I was 15, when my parents bought a summer house on Lake Sunnyside, it is like a second hometown to me. When my father retired, my parents located there permanently.

David Juhren

In response to David Juhren: Wow! How cool. I love your Father's work. Many of his writings are my favorite CBS Mystery episodes. He had such a wonderful gift. I know you are very proud of him.


Bob Juhren wrote some great radio plays, indeed! Born: October 7, 1924, Brooklyn, New York City, NY Died: March 17, 2009, Glens Falls, NY

Dan in South Jersey

His stories are the creepiest and best, the ones where you can't always predict the ending.


BOB JUHREN is one of my favorites. He wrote some of the best shocking endings like #0265-BLACK WIDOW and #0367-THE SUMMER PEOPLE. But my favorite from him, is #1245-THE JUDGE'S HOUSE (adapted from Bram Stoker).


Permit me to toss my two cents on the Bob Juhren fan wagon: The Holiday Visit is THE BEST of ALL the other 1398 CBSRMT programs by far!! None of them envelop me with nostalgia and early childhood Christmas memories like this one does! This past Christmas eve, I listened to it 7 times in a row!! There's just something about Lloyd, Patricia and Bob that make The Holiday Visit, Christmas eve of 1974 all over again...(the last Christmas my parents were married) and the happiness it still evokes


"The Outsider" (RMT-983) is my favorite episode by far. I was a fan of this episode since it originally aired back in the 1970's. And in the years since, I'm sure I've listened to this episode a hundred times - or more. It's one if the jewels of the entire series.
