EXCELLENT OLD SPOOKY STORIES

An excellent selection of creepy spooky radio drama's to entertain
you in the dark winter nights.

Each drama is different with fear at foe. Great productions that will
open your mind to the horrors that can lay at the back of one's mind.

Unfortunately as with many American Radio productions of that era
they use the musical organ to create background to heighten the horror effects. However; the organ sound effects are ABOMINABLE so loud and distracting and well OVERDONE that it slightly spoils these shows. One must try to overcome the sound effects and focus on the show's themselves. These are overall a great collection.

Great dramas, but no supernatural element.

I loved these mysteries, but there was nothing of the supernatural in them, contrary to the advertisement. I bought this audio book because of the misleading description, and would not have otherwise.

Not really "Haunting" more "Detective Noir"

"Yeah it's like this, see, I'm going to kill your wife, see... She's gettin' it tonight at midnight... And I'm gettin' all the insurance money! 5 thousand smackeroos!"

"Did you hear that? Dear, I think someone is planning to murder me! Oh I'm scared, darling!"

"Oh now don't be silly, pet! Trigger McWifeshooter would never hurt a fly, you know that! Besides I got a big golf game tomorrow, and I gotta work extra late tonite...way across town... until 2AM probably. You just find a nice book or something all by yourself until I get back..."

"Oh I don't know... maybe It's just my silly female hysteria, but if you say it's alright."

Excellent old time radio!

I'm a true old time radio fan and this is a wonderful collection of this old radio series " The Haunting Hour". The remastered sound quality is excellent too. The sound for every episode is crystal clear!I I really enjoyed every episode and hope Audible will offer more episodes from this great series:)
