Spooky Old Time Radio Shows
With Halloween around the corner, there seems no time like the present to share out some of the creepy and spooky Old Time Radio shows that are available via the Internet. Right now, Greg Bell has a great rotation of these shows on his old time radio channel (#82) on Sirius/XM or via the Internet Archive.
Here are four of my favorite horror series that you can listen to right now:
- Dark Fantasy - this was on NBC from 1941 to 1942 and features strange tales to keep you up at night. Be sure to check out the Pennsylvania Turnpike episode - a OTR classic.
- The Sealed Book - This 1945 series has always been one of my favorites. Kinda campy, but all in all, some fun ways to spend 30 minutes. Two favorites are Death at Storm House and Till Death Do Us Part.
- Inner Sanctum Mysteries - this series is well known for the creaking door - but all of them are great fun. This is also from the 1940s.
- Lights Out - This is more of the mysterious sort than straight out horror - but there are some great ones here, especially those penned by Arch Oboler. My favorite (and one I will write about later) is Profits Unlimited.
Here is the Pennsylvania Turnpike from Dark Fantasy....enjoy!
Here is Death at Storm House from The Sealed Book:
Enjoy these radio shows and Happy Halloween.
