We’ve got another horror favorite this Wednesday. Giang wanted to hear The Sending, from the CBS Radio Mystery Theater. This episode first aired March 6, 1974.
The Devil And Mr. O aired in the early 1970′s and featured Arch Oboler presenting his old Lights Out episodes to a brand new generation of listeners. The episode we’ll hear first aired as The Fast One both in 1936 and 1943. Oboler presents it here as Speed, airing March 3, 1972.
Karl wrote in asking for some Bela Lugosi so, though it isn’t exactly horror, we’ll hear an episode from Suspense starring Bela today. The Doctor Prescribed Death first aired February 2, 1943. Thanks for the suggestion Karl.
