We’ll hear from Quiet, Please on this episode with their story from December 8, 1947 titled, Some People Don’t Die.  There are some scratchy areas in this one, as there are with many episodes from this series, but the sound is pretty good for the most part.

Our month of vampires stories (each Wednesday) begins with an old favorite from The Hermit’s Cave.  We’ll hear The Vampire’s Desire.  I don’t have a solid air date for this one, but it most likely came from the 1936-1947 WJR run of the series.

Next Wednesday, a vampire tale from CBS Radio Mystery Theater.
