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)
This week, we feature another episode from X Minus One. We’ll hear Courtesy, which first aired August 18, 1955.
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).
