Volume 10
"Tired of the everyday grind? Ever dream of a life of romantic adventure? Want to get away from it all? We offer you...ESCAPE!"
Of the more than 200 episodes originally broadcast, there are but a mere handful of Escape programs that are missing today — wonderful news for the novice listener, as hours and hours of great and rewarding radio drama await.
Escape featured one of radio’s most memorable openings, with either William Conrad or Paul Frees intoning, “Tired of the everyday grind? Ever dream of a life of romantic adventure? Want to get away from it all? We offer you...ESCAPE!” The orchestra would then strike up Mussorgsky’s ‘Night on Bald Mountain’ and, within seconds, the listener would be transported to a Caribbean jungle or to an icy glacier, effectively putting them in the shoes of that episode’s protagonist.
Escape benefited from an ensemble cast that included actor William Conrad – who lent his voice to 90 episodes in this gem of a series from Radio’s Golden Age. Following a distant second, actor Ben Wright lent his voice to just a mere 56 episodes. Trailing in third place for the most performances on Escape, actor Harry Bartell voiced a variety of characters in 55 episodes, while John Dehner was cast in the lead role of Escape’s two-part adaptation of ‘Earth Abides’ - a classic and sweeping post-apocalyptic science fiction novel by George R. Stewart, lent his voice to 54 episodes, coming in at fourth place for the most appearances in Escape.
Known as being the voice of Escape, actor William Conrad once estimated that he portrayed more than 7,500 roles during his long career as a voice actor during Radio’s Golden Age. He lent his distinct voice as a supporting cast member to such shows as The Man Called X, Favorite Story, The Voyage of the Scarlet Queen, The Green Lama, Nightbeat, and even Escape’s sister show, Romance. He also voiced Sheriff Matt Dillon in Gunsmoke.
Thrill to high adventure in this 6 CD Collection of Escape, Volume 10, fully restored by Radio Archives.
