This week our science fiction story comes from Suspense. From March 4, 1962 we’ll hear Doom Machine.
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.
Our thriller this week was suggested by Jennifer, who asked to hear the classic Sorry, Wrong Number from Suspense. This is the first production of the show, airing on May 25, 1943, but the story would be repeated seven more times over the shows twenty year run.
Suspense fills the first slot of the show this week with an episode that came up in the forum titled The Man Who Couldn’t Lose. This one aired September 28, 1944. Next up is Incredible But True and Death Gives A Warning. John Steele, Adventurer closes out this episode with Captive, which first aired January 29, 1950 (begins at 33:52).
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.
