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.
This week it’s another adventure behind the lines with the OSS on Cloak And Dagger. We’ll hear War Of Words, which first aired September 1, 1950.
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).
This week it’s Space Patrol! This episode, titled Venus Space Factory, first aired May 2, 1953.
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.
We hear from Escape on today’s show. Featuring Paul Frees, and first airing October 22, 1947, here’s their version of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic The Fall Of The House Of Usher.
Herbert Marshall plays Ken Thurston, The Man Called X, on today’s offering. We’ll hear Dirty Racket, which first aired January 29, 1952.
