Do you like mystery? Intrigue? Excitement? Solving dastardly crimes? Shocking turns of events? Penguins? If you answered “yes” to all these things, perhaps you should check out our three favorite episodes from The Mystery & Intrigue Show.
The Mystery & Intrigue Show was a radio program that my library hosted in collaboration with The All-Ages Show, a children’s show on WPRB 103.3 FM (Princeton University’s student-run, community-supported, independent radio). We aired six original mystery stories and kids called in with the solutions. The prize for the clever young detectives? A fabulous retro radio!
The sound files were a little too hefty for the blog platform, but you can click over to our website where they are happily streaming away. May we suggest popping some popcorn, gathering around the speakers, and settling in for some mystery-solving adventures? Parents, good news: these mysteries are completely appropriate for children of all ages.

You might also consider tuning in to the All-Ages Show. It airs Saturdays from 12:00pm – 1:30pm on WPRB 103.3 FM, and streams live from the station’s site as well. The show features cool music for kids and Paddytales, a truly fabulous radio story time.
We tune in to the show regularly, and I am especially appreciative of Paddy’s musical choices. Some children’s music can be a little tough for parents to listen to, but Paddy’s selections are always fantastic. Our family also enjoys the antics of Paddy’s co-host, Eddap (species unrevealed), who is perhaps the most contrary radio co-host on the planet. You gotta love a co-host who argues with the host, makes snarky remarks, and falls asleep on air!
