Nowhere near the quality of Escape or Suspense
Having recently discovered the joys of old radio story broadcasts with the Escape and Suspense series in Audible and being blown away with just how good they were considering they were seventy years old in some cases I thought I'd give Inner Sanctum a try as I love horror stories. Sadly the recording quality was poor so I'm presuming these were not remastered like the Escape and Suspense recordings. Also I wish they'd lower the volume on the organ. it was the only part of the recordings that were making me jump. If be bidding off asleep then the organ music would start up and blow my ears off. Returned for my credit back sadly.

A odd couple
This show had for most its episodes the weirdest radio couple ever. The mysterious narrator known as the Host and the Lipton tea lady Mary. It’s like if a ghost and a normal house wife got together on a regular basis to talk about ghost stories and how good Lipton tea is. It has to be the strangest way to advertise a tea product.
