We’ve got one more from Suspense this week for our strange tale. From May 3, 1954 it’s The Giant Of Thermopylae.
Merry Christmas! Our Saturday horror is a bit early this week in order to share this holiday classic on time. We hear the Campbell Playhouse adaptation of A Christmas Carol, featuring Orson Welles. This one aired December 23, 1938.
Pamela requested this little gem to help celebrate the season (in a way), and since you can’t go wrong with Peter Lorre mumbling/singing Jingle Bells it’s the perfect time to enjoy Back For Christmas. This episode from Suspense first aired December 23, 1943.
This Is Your FBI presents The Cautious Killer, which first aired February 8, 1946 to start our show out this week. Then after Believe It Or Not, it’s the Secrets Of Scotland Yard, and an episode titled Brothers Staunton.
Jay sent in one of his favorites this week from Beyond Midnight. Generally known as The Visits, I don’t believe that title to be correct according to some newer information. I believe the proper title is The House, which aired June 27, 1969. Either way, it’s a fun episode. Thanks Jay!

Theater Five begins this weeks show with The Captive Spirit from October 16, 1964. Then it’s Goodbye Mr. Bathurst from Incredible But True. We conclude with Obsession, and an episode from 1952 titled The Solitary Genius (begins 26:00).
Our strange tale comes from The Mysterious Traveler this week. This series aired over Mutual stations for nine years, its last show airing in September of 1952. We’ll hear Operation Tomorrow, which first aired April 11, 1950.
We hear from The Witch’s Tale on today’s episode of The Horror, one of the earliest surviving examples of radio horror programs first airing in 1931. The episode is titled The Troth Of Death, and aired March 11, 1937.
For over 20 years, the Lux Radio Theater presented radio adaptations of films, including the Hitchcock classic Strangers On A Train. The film was released in June of 1951, and the program we’ll hear today on December 3 of the same year.
