Suspense starts things off this week with their episode from July 18, 1956 titled The Man Who Threw Acid. Next is Believe It Or Not and Great Talent. The Whistler ends this episode with Last Request, which first aired October 17, 1954 (begins 27:25).
We hear from Exploring Tomorrow on this weeks show. Country Boy, the second episode of the series, first aired December 18, 1957. The closing credits had been removed from the file, but I believe the story is complete.
Kind of a special show today. Jon requested any headless horseman stories I was able to find, and as luck would have it there are a couple. First, from CBS Radio Mystery Theater is The Headless Hessian, which first aired September 23, 1975. Then it’s Favorite Story with The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow from May 29, 1948.
The New Adventures Of Nero Wolfe starts things off today with Dear Dead Lady from November 3, 1950. Then after Believe It Or Not, it’s Broadway Is My Beat and The Silks Bergen Murder Case, which first aired August 18, 1949 (begins at 31:23).
It’s another horror favorite today, this time coming from Diane who wanted to hear Cat’s Cradle by the Price Of Fear. Come back Saturday for another fine episode of The Hall Of Fantasy.
This weeks show begins with NBC Short Story and Scuttlebutt, which first aired May 16, 1952. Then it’s The Heat Of Anger from Incredible But True. Lightning Jim closes this show out with Jesse James Helps The Marshal, also from 1952 (begins at 34:06).
Theater Five aired on the ABC network five days a week at 5:00 PM from August 1964, to July of 1965. From this series we’ll hear Incident At Apogee, which first aired August 28, 1964.
We’ll hear the 32nd episode from The Lives Of Harry Lime on today’s show. Turnabout Is Foul Play first aired March 7, 1952. The audio quality is pretty horrendous on this one – consider yourself warned. It’s included here only to offer a complete set of this series.
