A few decades ago (the 70s, maybe?) there was a series of teen books called
Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators. It was in the genre of Nancy
Drew/Hardy Boys. Seems that Random House re-published them back in the 80s
or 90s. I am writing here because I found 2 stories on mp3 - The Secret of
Terror Castle, and The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot. Download for them
is at http://www.tunneltwo.com/workshop/audio.html.
I am writing to see if any of you have other of these Three Investigators
stories on mp3? I would love to have others! I have not listened to these
two yet, but they certainly look like Nancy Drew sort of stories! I've been
told these books were even better than the Hardy Boys!

- I read those books when I was a boy. Still have them in fact. Was not
aware they were ever put on the radio.
You are correct in that they are the same genre as the Hardy Boys/Nancy
Drew. I read all the Hardy Boys and some of the Nancy Drew. The
biggest difference was that the Three Investigators were younger and
limited to bicyles and the occasional use of the Rolls Royce they won in
a contest. As I recall I have 13 titles in the series. The ones you
listed were #1 and #2 if I remember correctly.
I am travelling this week but when I get home I will download the two
shows you posted and see how they compare to the books.
Thanks for posting the links,

- I don't have MP3's and didn't know they were done on audio tapes! If you get
any please let me know. My boys loved these books. I wouldn't say they were
better than Hardy Boys. Not as long or indepth but very good on their own
