I was poking around the members' section a little while ago and thought I'd stumbled upon some previously unknown episodes of 'Dark Fantasy'. The directory in the members' section contains 77 episodes, while the OTRR (Old Time Radio Researchers group) certified collection on Archive.org contains only 28 episodes, plus .rtf files that serve as placeholders for three lost episodes. Could there really be 46 previously unknown episodes of this uber spooky series from the early '40s? Shocked

Turns out not to be the case. Sad

On closer examination, the 'bonus' episodes turned out to be from a couple of other series. All eight episodes of 'Mystery in the air' are in there, along with a bunch of episodes of 'Sleep No More'. For the record, none of the missing Dark Fantasy episodes are to be found in this 'expanded' collection.

Brad, I'll leave it to you whether the 'bonus' episodes remain in the directory. According to OTRR, the 31 known episodes are listed below. Lost episodes are indicated If anybody has copies of the lost episodes, the nice folks at OTRR would love to hear from you.
