"...designed to free you from the four walls of today for a half-hour of high adventure..."
 
Many of the shows dramatized on Escape have established permanent residence in the recesses of this author's memory: "Zero Hour," an eerie science-fiction tale about the end of the world; "Evening Primrose," in which a misfit removes himself from the rest of society by hiding out in a department store...and discovers to his horror the strange creatures that roam there after hours; "Poison," a sweat-inducing allegory on prejudice that develops when a man awakens to learn that a deadly snake has joined him in his bunk. "A Shipment of Mute Fate" was another of Escape's all-time classics - an African bushmaster gets loose on a passenger ship, much to the dismay of both travelers and crew - and "Leinengen vs. the Ants," in which a stubborn plantation owner must fight off an army of African ants. Perhaps the best remembered tale aired on Escape is "Three Skeleton Key," in which a group of lighthouse keepers find themselves besieged by ravenous rats. (Fans simply refer to it as "the one with the rats".)
 
During the course of its seven year run on radio, Escape was moved up and down the broadcast day and time dial a good eighteen times before the last show of the series aired. CBS kept moving its popular radio program all across a wide range of broadcast times and days, which prevented the show from obtaining long term-sponsorship. Yet despite CBS hodge-podge approach, Escape did manage to get sponsors – just not regular, long term ones. Among the companies that sponsored Escape were the Richfield Oil Corporation of New York, the Ford Motor Company, and the Chrysler-Plymouth Company.
 
This 6 CD collection of Escape, Volume 7 has been fully restored and remastered by Radio Archives for the best Sparkling sound.

by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
In that single, unguarded moment while he played his precious Stradivarius, the combined forces of the Mayor of Hell — the crooked Law and the vengeful Underworld — besieged Richard Wentworth, otherwise known as the Spider, nemesis of criminals! Mourned as dead, the Spider must start life anew, without friends or funds or hidden refuge, so that the Mayor of Hell’s bloody-handed henchmen — who judge no deed too base, who respect neither man nor God — may find their just reward — in death!
 
During the Golden Age of Pulp Fiction, three publications ranked as the most popular: The Shadow, Doc Savage, and the SpiderThe great pulp magazines of the 1930s and 40s produced a number of heroes, but none as action-oriented as the Spider. For almost exactly a decade, from October 1933 to December 1943, the Spider was the scourge of the Underworld, doling out his own particular brand of justice and imprinting his dreaded red Spider seal on the foreheads of those he has killed for the good of mankind.
 
The Spider followed the established pulp pattern of a wealthy man-about-town, Richard Wentworth III, master of disguise, dilettante of the arts, in perfect physical condition, and completely devoted to the pursuit of justice for the down-trodden, no matter what the cost to himself or loved ones. Secretly donning a decrepit black hat, a tattered black cape, a false hunch to his shoulders, a lank wig of stringy hair, an application of sinister face makeup and a pair of .45 automatics, Wentworth prowls the streets of New York as his alter-ego the Spider, chasing down criminal masterminds bent on enslaving or destroying humanity. Much of the action takes place in the tenements and slums, the poor and lower classes victimized as readily as the rich.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings the action to electrifying life. The Mayor of Hell originally published in The Spider magazine, January, 1936.

These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook. As a special bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this Horror Stories series of eBooks.
 
Horror Stories! The dark companion to Dime Mystery Magazine. Created to showcase stories too horrible for Terror Tales. The third of the triumvirate of fear pulps. This brand of fiction came to be called Weird Menace. The mystery-and-menace formula proved so successful that publisher Popular Publications produced Dime Mystery Magazine, Terror Tales and Horror Stories. These three dominated the Weird Menace genre all through the 1930s. Blurbed as “mystery-horror” stories instead of “mystery-terror,” Horror Stories was formulated differently that its companion titles. Damn the plot. Pour on the menace! This ebook contains a collection of stories from the pages of Horror Stories magazine, all written by Nat Schachner and Edith and Ejler Jacobson, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

by Will Murray and Lester Dent, writing as Kenneth Robeson, cover illustration by Joe DeVito
 
Why did a desperate man shave his head before visiting Doc Savage headquarters, only to be struck down, his pulsing brain turned to inert stone? What sinister secret did his strange slaying silence? And how was a lizard-green shadow resembling Medusa branded on Doc’s office wall?

These are only some of the questions confronting the Man of Bronze as he pursues a grisly trail of petrified corpses to post-Prohibition Chicago, whose criminal underworld is being terrorized by a serpent-haired demon engaged in a seemingly senseless slaughter spree whose ultimate target will shake Doc Savage’s men to their core.

Suspects are many, clues baffling. Death and danger lurks everywhere they turn—symbolized by the silhouette of a faceless Gorgon.

 
From the concrete canyons of Manhattan to the coal fields of Illinois, Doc Savage tracks a phantom fiend the likes of which he has never before hunted. Or is he the one being hunted? Softcover $24.95

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 16 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.
 
 
Rhapsody In Rhythm was a music show syndicated by the Transco Radio Transcription Company starting in 1936. The series consisted of 78 fifteen-minute episodes.
 
Featuring Charles W. Hamp and the Rhythm Rascals. One of several programs syndicated by Transco in the 1930s. Hamp played piano and saxophone and worked in Los Angeles radio in the late 1920s. He recorded for Columbia Records and recorded this series for Transco in 1936-37, crooning and offering up "hot jazz" arrangements of popular tunes.
 
Hamp, who played for royalty and President Woodrow Wilson, was the highest paid radio artist in 1931, and yet he is all but unknown these days. He was a sensation from the late 1920's right through most of the Great Depression, and recorded a series of Rhapsody in Rhythm shows that were distributed to subscribing radio stations across the country, thanks to the Transco Radio Transcription Company.
 
1937 proved to be a banner year for Transco, with a wide range of diverse series in distribution and, later in the year, production started on The Cinnamon Bear a series that would entertain and enthrall listeners for many decades to come.
 
Rhapsody In Rhythm discs are two-sided shellac discs, with one complete 15 minute program on each side.
 
Special sale. All Rhapsody In Rhythm transcription discs are 25% off until September 8. Buy one disc or all of them at the sale price of $26.23 each, normally $34.98.
