Any other fans here of the OT radio drama Suspense? I just finished "Ghost Hunt" and dang was it unsettling. It was like the film Hereditary, a slow burner that induces anxiety and tension. The found footage plot device, popularized by The Blair Witch Project, plays out much better when it's audio only. I sure didn't see that ending coming either! Which episodes have you enjoyed?

Most of us probably weren't around during the heyday of radio when this show was popular.
I'm a recent convert and I have to say that it's aged well! You can find many of the episodes on YouTube if you're interested in checking the series out.

Thank you for the tip, I will most certainly check it out. Tis the season! I don't know if I want anxiety though, just suspense in fiction.

I remember my grandfather talking about the whole family sitting around the radio at night. I have never listened to any of those shows but I might just give it a try. Thanks for bringing back great memories of my grandfather.

My grandparents had the whole series on cassette tapes. Alex and I used to listen to them when we'd visit. I remember "The Hitch-Hiker" episode freaked me out. It was creepy! Try that one if you're after something spooky.

If you want to listen to old time radio. For the next 20 years maybe. This website is remarkable for the sheer volume of material. And, downloadable. Free.
