Our horror favorite this week comes from the CBS Radio Mystery Theater. First airing March 12, 1974 here is A Sacrifice In Blood.
The Crime Club starts off the show this week with Fear Came First, which first aired March 13, 1947. Then, after Believe It Or Not, it’s Murder By Experts and Summer Heat, from June 13, 1949.
We’ll hear two shows featuring Orson Welles this week. First is The Glass Key from the Campbell Playhouse, an episode that originally aired March 10, 1939. Then, from the early 1950’s it’s The Black Museum and The Door Key (begins at 59:58).
Wyllis Cooper and Ernest Chapell bring us Quiet, Please for today’s horror. From May 10, 1948 we’ll hear There Are Shadows Here. As with many Quiet, Please episodes the audio quality leaves a little to be desired, but I’ve done what I can with it, and hope you’ll enjoy it.
We’ll hear from Dangerous Assignment this week, a series that ran on NBC from the summer of 1949 to July of 1953. This episode aired December 16, 1950 and it’s titled Recover Civil War Map.
Holden wrote in asking for a werewolf story, so I dug this one up out of the archive from Dark Fantasy. W Is For Werewolf first aired February 13, 1942.
