An Anthology of Mixed Quality

The radio episodes in this collection offer a wide introduction to what was considered scary during the Golden Age of radio. Horror, like comedy, doesn't always age well, and some of these stories more corny than terrifying, but they will all be interesting to the one-time radio enthusiast.
