Today’s horror favorite came out of a discussion in the forum. Chianti asked to hear this great episode of Suspense, starring Agnes Moorehead, titled The Yellow Wallpaper. It first aired July 29, 1948.
This show is a bit longer than usual, and brings us two fine stories beginning with Authors Playhouse and Two Of A Kind, which first aired July 28, 1944. Then it’s Incredible But True and Rescue At Sea. We’ll finish off with Studio One, and Payment Deferred which aired July 8, 1947 (begins at 32:40).
This week we revisit an episode from the South African series, SF ’68. This series aired from March, to October of 1968 before being replaced with Beyond Midnight. The episode we’ll hear, titled Quest, first aired July 5, 1968.
Strange Tales is back this week with something from Quiet, Please. From November 17, 1947 we’ll hear Kill Me Again.
The CBS Radio Mystery Theater brings us All Living Things Must Die for this episode. The story was written by Mystery Theater regular Elspeth Eric, who wrote 115 other stories for the show, and also appeared as an actress on 13 episodes. This one first aired April 29, 1974.

Donovan’s Brain, featuring Orson Welles, is our selection for today. This episode originally aired on Suspense in two parts, May 18 and May 25, of 1944. I trimmed a little off of each (1 Roma Wine commercial is enough for a week) for a smoother transition between the two.
The Whistler begins our hour of radio this week with The Alibi, which first aired October 25, 1942. Next up is Believe It Or Not with Hidden Treasure. The Sealtest Variety Theater closes this show with a halloween party thrown by Boris Karloff which aired October 28, 1948 (begins at 30:55).
