Old Time Radio
Volume 11
We invite you to enjoy stories that keep you in…Suspense!
“If I ever do any more radio work, I want to do it on Suspense, where I get a good chance to act,” Cary Grant was quoted as saying back in 1943. Grant’s great love for Suspense was due to William Spier. Spier was chief of the writers’ department and director of development at CBS in 1940. As co-producer of Suspense, Spier developed the show’s thriller/chiller/macabre genre into a formula with human drama that attracted the finest of Hollywood’s elite as well as the cream of radio’s great actors – including Grant, Orson Welles, and many others.
Many popular actors leaped at the chance to be cast in a role on Suspense. Spier made it a goal to take actors already stereotyped for certain roles and cast them on Suspense in parts his listeners would not expect. Peter Lorre, known often as a villain, made a turn as a cultured gentleman. Elliott Lewis, known by most radio fans as the drunken Remley in the Phil Harris and Alice Faye Show, took on the role of a deadly killer pursuing a desperate carhop, played by Judy Garland. Even Lena Horne and Dinah Shore, famous more as singers, took their turn as actors on Suspense.
Comedian Lucille Ball had a rather unexpected tie to Suspense that continued long after her performance in the “Dime A Dance” episode, which aired in Suspense in 1944. In the episode, Ms. Ball played a dance hall girl menaced by one of the gentlemen she had danced with. She was also a spokeswoman for Roma Wines. In full-color, two page magazine advertisements, Ms. Ball is quoted as saying; “It’s never too hot to be cool with Roma Wine Coolers.”
Discover how this program is truly the total package - expertly written stories, top performances from radio’s best actors, quality production values, and enough terror and mystery to make it fun. Suspense, Volume 11 from Radio Archives presents six hours of this radio classic restored to Sparkling audio quality.

The Song of Death
by Wayne Rogers writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Upon New York fell the haunting notes of the death-dirge — and those who heard it died in raving madness! For a powerful murder-musician had conquered Manhattan with his symphony of slaughter, and before this unprecedented menace the law was whipped! Only Richard Wentworth, in the Spider’s cloak of night, knew how to battle this new master of the Underworld and switch off the sinister sonata that had brought terror to a great city!
He was the champion of oppressed humanity, its shield and protector against the murderous outbreaks of the Underworld; wherever crime struck terribly, that way he hastened, taking up the challenge. The police had offered rewards totaling thousands of dollars for his capture “dead or alive.” And the Underworld hated him, and plotted his destruction with a fierceness bred of abject terror.
But the Spider was indifferent alike to proscription by the Underworld and dogged persecution by police. Evading their bullets and traps, he continued to fight his thankless battle as humanity’s paladin....
And the Spider seemed to rejoice in being outnumbered by impossible odds. Captured by a modern-day buccaneer in one epic, Wentworth shrugged off the mood of black despair when defeat seemed imminent: One man against more than a hundred pirates, of course, a hundred killers. The Spider knew that, but it did not check the wild impulse to laughter that squeezed his lungs. It was no wonder that men call the Spider mad!
Nick Santa Maria reads this exciting suspense story of murder, mayhem and mystery that perfectly evokes 1939 Manhattan. The Song of Death originally published in The Spider magazine, February, 1939.

Empire of Doom
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
America faces certain doom as its citizens fall in screaming thousands before the noxious death vapors loosed upon them by the Green Hand. How can the Spider, harried and threatened by a hundred new and deadly perils, check the rising power of the next Dictator — and lay bare the scheming, criminal mind which seeks to enslave the nation?
More just than the Law...more dangerous than the Underworld. Hated, wanted, feared by both! Alone and desperate, the Spider wages a deadly, one-man war against the supercriminal whose long-planned crime-coup will snuff a thousand lives! Can the Spider prevent this slaughter of innocents?
In Empire of Doom, Richard Wentworth, still early in his ten-year career as the arachnid-inspired defender of humanity, takes on the gravest challenge he had yet faced.
A faceless terrorist calling himself the Green Hand has unleashed a corrosive gas on the lumber town of Elkhorn, Michigan, killing its inhabitants––by stripping the living meat from their bones! His next victim will be another Michigan hamlet. And this unknown monster vows to keep snuffing out entire cities until Washington pays him a five billion dollar ransom.
But the Green Hand has reckoned without another powerful force. The Spider! Rising to the challenge, the Master of Men rushes to prevent a wave of tragedy unrivaled in American history. It does not go well. When Richard Wentworth is captured by the authorities, and both his fiance and his mentor, Nita van Sloan and Professor Brownlee, are captured as well, who will protect the people then?
A new savior rises in the form of powerful industrialist Jonathan Love, inventor of the only known counteragent to the flesh-dissolving vapor. America hails him as its latest champion. Is he the anointed leader who will save the beleaguered nation—or does Love actually want to rule it?
Nick Santa Maria provides the stupefying answers through his thrilling narration. Originally published in The Spider magazine, February, 1934.

Volume 6
The legendary Master of Men returns in two classic stories from one of the pulp era's most popular magazines. First, in "Emperor of the Yellow Death" (1935), an exotic women of the East, as deadly as she is beautiful, is servant to a criminal genius. More ruthless than any of his Mongol ancestors, Wang-ba stages a villainous uprising designed to enslave all of America. To defeat him, Richard Wentworth, alias The Spider, must face hidden death-traps, hordes of maddened gunmen and a pool of man-eating turtles. Then, in "Slaves of the Burning Blade" (1941), is a foreign sabotage ring responsible for a recent reign of terror or is a criminal genius known as The Knife really to blame? Only The Spider knows for certain, but will he survive being hounded by both the police and a vigilante band known as the Knights of Liberty so as to reveal the truth? These two exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading and feature both of the original full color covers as well as interior illustrations that accompany each story.

Transcription Discs
During radio's "Golden Age", most programs were aired live, rather than prerecorded. Luckily, many were recorded while they were being broadcast — sometimes so a sponsor, a producer, a director, or a performer could listen to them later, other times for legal purposes. Most were recorded onto 16" records, called electrical transcriptions or Transcription Discs. With the introduction of audio tape in the 1950s, transcriptions gradually became a thing of the past, with many being discarded in large quantities. As a result, with the passing of the years, they have become increasingly rare and hard to find.
Though it does take special equipment to play such a large record, many radio enthusiasts collect them. Some people are interested solely in discs from a favorite series, while others just like to own a few rare and high-quality transcription recordings to frame and hang on their wall.
Buying transcription discs has always been difficult whether it is finding them, bidding against others in an auction, watching the price quadruple in the last few seconds, or not knowing the quality of the seller or the discs. That has all changed. When you see a transcription disc on Radio Archives that you want to buy, add it to the shopping cart and we will ship it to you the same day. Our flat rate postage of only $4.00 for US orders can save you a lot of money on these heavy discs. Radio Archives has handled 30,000 transcription discs over the last 19 years and we know how to ship them safely.
Add the transcription discs you want to purchase to the shopping cart along with Old Time Radio CDs, Audiobooks, or Pulps that you want for a low $4 flat rate postage for everything in your order.
It is time to find a new home for thousands of transcription discs. Your Home.
This week when you buy any of our transcription discs, you will receive a Radio Archives Gift Certificate for the amount of your purchase. As an example, buy $500 worth of discs and receive a $500 Gift Certificate redeemable for anything on RadioArchives.com. (Gift certificates will be emailed to you on June 29th.) (Payment plans available, write for details.)

Excellent Narration of new Doc saga, Phantom Lagoon. Another fine addition to the Doc Savage collection. I confess I am partial to the original pulp stories from 1933-1939 best .... but Will Murray does a great job keeping Doc alive today.
Bill writes:
Another great audio book of Doc, Phantom Lagoon. always look forward to hearing these adventures.
Kevin writes:
Phantom Lagoon is another solid story from Will Murray (writing as Kenneth Robeson)... And, what makes these Audiobooks very enjoyable is the performance by Michael McConnohie - he makes every character distinct and I can't picture the main cast sounding any different...
