Today’s horror favorite came out of a discussion in the forum. Chianti asked to hear this great episode of Suspense, starring Agnes Moorehead, titled The Yellow Wallpaper. It first aired July 29, 1948.
Donovan’s Brain, featuring Orson Welles, is our selection for today. This episode originally aired on Suspense in two parts, May 18 and May 25, of 1944. I trimmed a little off of each (1 Roma Wine commercial is enough for a week) for a smoother transition between the two.
We hear from Suspense once again this week, with an episode featuring DeForest Kelley years before he became Dr. McCoy. The episode is titled Flesh Peddler, and first aired August 4, 1957.
Next week, more from Quiet, Please!
On this episode of the show we’ll hear from Suspense. First airing October 19, 1943, Lazarus Walks was one of eight programs of this series featuring Welles.
We conclude Suspense Week with this episode based on H.P. Lovecraft’s short story The Dunwich Horror. The story was first published in the April 1929 edition of Weird Tales magazine. This episode first aired November 1, 1945.
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.
