Aired weekly from July 4, 1980 to May 13, 1983 Produced in Edmonton, this radio drama series offered tales of the supernatural, horror and science fiction. The show often attracted negative mail due to the frightening nature of the episodes, yet it lasted for three years and produced some original dramatic episodes not heard since the 1960s. Adaptations of The Monkey’s Paw, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Body Snatchers were among the 100 episodes broadcast during its run. Producer: Bill Howell

Written by John Corcelli - October, 2007
