This week’s comes from the first adult oriented science fiction series titled 2000 Plus. From October 10, 1951 we’ll hear The Rocket And The Skull.
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)
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.
