Suspense fills the first slot of the show this week with an episode that came up in the forum titled The Man Who Couldn’t Lose. This one aired September 28, 1944. Next up is Incredible But True and Death Gives A Warning. John Steele, Adventurer closes out this episode with Captive, which first aired January 29, 1950 (begins at 33:52).
The Mystery Playhouse was produced by the Armed Forces Radio Service and featured rebroadcasts of shows from other series. This episode, hosted by Peter Lorre and featuring Boris Karloff, is titled Those Who Walk In Darkness. I don’t know what series it originates from but I think you’ll enjoy it anyway.
Our first tale of crime this week comes from Crime And Peter Chambers. We’ll hear Cemetery Attack from April 20, 1954. Then after Believe It Or Not, it’s The Private Files Of Rex Saunders and High Dividends Or Shallow Graves. That episode aired May 30, 1951.
Our horror favorite this week comes from Bob. He wanted to hear Valse Triste from Lights Out. This episode was originally done with Boris Karloff in 1938, but that recording isn’t available. The version we’ll hear features Dinah Shore, Lou Merrill, and Joseph Kearns, and aired December 29, 1942.
This week our foray into the golden age begins with Confession, and an episode from August 15, 1953 titled The George S. Decker Case. Then we Believe It Or Not with Choosy Thief. The Haunting Hour closes out this show with Murder Is My Business from May 19, 1948 (begins at 31:19)
