Featuring Suspense and The Whistler
Hello MPIR Fans,
For your weekend listening pleasure the featured series is Suspense and The Whistler.
Suspense 1942 - 1962 One of the premier drama programs of the Golden Age of Radio, was subtitled "radio's outstanding theater of thrills" and focused on suspense thriller-type scripts, usually featuring leading Hollywood actors of the era. The series went through several major phases, characterized by different hosts, sponsors, and director/producers. Formula plot devices were followed for all but a handful of episodes: the protagonist was usually a normal person suddenly dropped into a threatening or bizarre situation; solutions were "withheld until the last possible second"; and evildoers were usually punished in the end.
The Whistler 1942 - 1955 is an American radio mystery drama which ran on the west-coast regional CBS radio network. The show was also broadcast in Chicago and over Armed Forces Radio. On the west coast, it was sponsored by the Signal Oil Company:
"That whistle is your signal for the Signal Oil program, The Whistler."
"I...am the Whistler, and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales, many secrets hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows. Yes... I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak!
The mystery stream will also play an few more episodes of The Tales Of The Texas Rangers, The Line Up, and The 21st Precinct. All to entertain you throughout the weekend.
