This week, NBC Short Story begins the show with Mr. Arqularis, an episode from February 28, 1951. Next up is Incredible But True and The Phantom Army. We finish with Bob Barkley, Undercover Agent and Tyler Forest from 1946.
We were supposed to hear from 2000 Plus this week, but the episode proved too difficult to make listenable. So, how about a little Theater Five? We’ll hear Outside Time, an episode from September 1, 1964.
We’ll hear an episode from The Hermit’s Cave this week via a series for Armed Forces Radio titled Mystery Playhouse. That series took shows like Hermit’s Cave, Inner Sanctum, Molle Mystery Theater, and others, and presented them to the troops under that banner. The episode is titled Mr. Randall’s Discovery. This one sounds pretty rough, so if you’re a stickler for sound quality skip it.
Three stories from Lights Out are featured on today’s show. First off, as requested by Jenny, we’ll hear Chicken Heart. This version comes from a 1960’s record – not the original broadcast. Also from that record, we’ll hear The Dark. Those episodes had originally aired in the 1930’s, and there doesn’t seem to be any recordings of the original shows. Our third episode features Boris Karloff, and it’s titled The Dream.
This week we begin with The Eagle Murder Case, an episode from Philo Vance that originally aired July 13, 1948. Then, after Believe It Or Not, it’s Whitehall 1212 and The Murder Of Duncan Frazier, which first aired December 9, 1951.
Alan Ladd is Dan Holliday in Box 13, our first episode this week. We’ll hear Hot Box, which first aired December 26, 1948. Then it’s Believe It Or Not with Free Criminal. We conclude this show with The Lloyd Mawson Entry from the Diary Of Fate. This one aired February 7, 1948 (begins at 28:59).
We add a little international flavor with this week’s episode. From the South African series The Creaking Door, we’ll hear Don’t Go Down In The Mine. This episode originally aired June 29, 1964.
