Another from Suspense on today’s show. From October 9, 1956 we’ll hear The Digger. Next week, it’s the CBS Radio Mystery Theater!
This week we’ll begin with Suspense and The Last Days Of John Dillinger, an episode from May 10, 1954. Then we continue our Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar serial, titled The McCormack Matter, with episodes 3 and 4. Those were first heard October 5 and 6 of 1955.
Today’s horror favorite is also part of Suspense Week, and has a lot going for it! We’ll hear The Hitchhiker, a story featuring Orson Welles and written by Lucille Fletcher. This one aired September 2, 1942.
We’ll hear two from Suspense this week beginning with St. James Infirmary Blues which aired February 27, 1953 (I mistakenly said 1958 – scratch that). Then it’s a brief word from Flash Pulp. Our second serving of Suspense is titled The Copper Tea Strainer, and first aired April 21, 1949.
More from Suspense on the show this week. We’ll hear an episode from the last year of this long running series titled A Strange Day In May. This one originally aired September 9, 1962.
Suspense starts things off this week with their episode from July 18, 1956 titled The Man Who Threw Acid. Next is Believe It Or Not and Great Talent. The Whistler ends this episode with Last Request, which first aired October 17, 1954 (begins 27:25).
I received a couple of requests for these episodes of Suspense, so here they are together for a full hour from a great series. First it’s Wet Saturday, the second episode of the series, from June 24, 1942. Then we’ll hear Killjoy from Believe It Or Not. Hide And Seek comes up next, airing May 13, 1962 (begins at 31:12).
We have a suggestion from Guinn for our episode this week. It’s a production of Suspense titled My Dear Niece. The script and title were used twice on Suspense, once on January 24, 1946 and then again on November 23, 1958 (with different actors). The version we’ll hear aired in 1946.
