Written and directed by Carlton E. Morse, ILAM, (or "The Mystery"as it is known by many of its many fans, first appeared on NBC’s Pacific Coast outlets back in January 1939, went coast to coast later that fall, and appeared on-and-off over nearly every broadcast network until the final reprisal show at the end of 1953.
Fast paced, deftly scripted, and Fleischmann’s dried-yeast vitaminized with over-the-top-excitement, ILAM is still beloved by fans of radio mystery drama nearly 60 years after it first appeared over the airwaves.

ILAM appeared in two separate network radio runs (one in Hollywood, the second originating from New York City a decade later), spawned three 1940s movies, a comic strip, and a single television series pilot.
I Love A Mystery even inspired the writers of the original Hanna-Barbara cartoon, "Scooby Doo--Where Are You"!
