We visit The Hermit’s Cave once again for this show, and hear an episode we haven’t heard since 2007 titled The Mystery Of The Thing. I’ve always seen this one listed as The Mystery Of The Strange Thing, and that’s what I say in the intro, but the Hermit has it a little different. Either way, enjoy!
Today we’ll hear two from The Black Mass, a series suggested by Troy, and one we’ve not heard from in quite a while. First is their adaptation of the Ambrose Bierce story The Boarded Window which aired February 12, 1964. That will be followed by The Haunted House, taken from a story written by Virginia Woolf.
Our horror favorite this week was sent in by Scott, who asked to hear a classic from Quiet, Please. The Thing On The Fourble Board first aired August 9, 1948.
We hear from Beyond Midnight on today’s episode. This story is based on the Charles Dickens story The Signalman, and first aired March 28, 1969. Here’s The Train.
We go way back for our horror this week. The Witch’s Tale aired from May 1931 to June 1938, and aired the show we’ll hear today on January 7, 1935. Here is The Entomologist.
Our horror favorite this week comes from the CBS Radio Mystery Theater. First airing March 12, 1974 here is A Sacrifice In Blood.
Wyllis Cooper and Ernest Chapell bring us Quiet, Please for today’s horror. From May 10, 1948 we’ll hear There Are Shadows Here. As with many Quiet, Please episodes the audio quality leaves a little to be desired, but I’ve done what I can with it, and hope you’ll enjoy it.
Holden wrote in asking for a werewolf story, so I dug this one up out of the archive from Dark Fantasy. W Is For Werewolf first aired February 13, 1942.
