Murder at Midnight
Volume 2
“Midnight, the witching hour when the night is darkest, our fears the strongest, and our strength at its lowest ebb. Midnight, when the graves gape open and death strikes.”
Murder At Midnight was a thirty minute show, featuring macabre tales of suspense, often with a supernatural twist.
Louis G. Cowan, Inc., a transcribed programming house began creating a series of crime fiction dramas slotted for late night listening. It had one of the higher production and cast costs for syndicated programming for that time. Directed by Anton M. Leder and produced by Louis G. Cowan. The host was Raymond Morgan, who delivered the memorable lines of introduction over Charles Paul’s effective organ theme.
Featuring tales of the supernatural and the macabre by radio's top writers and stars. The writers included Robert Newman, Joseph Ruscoll, Max Ehrlich, Betty Caine, Carl Frank, Sigmund Miller, Winifred Wolfe, Jay Williams, Barry Hopkins, Lawson Zerbe, William Norwood, Abram S. Guiness, and Leon Meadow.
Actors include Alan Hewett, Ann Shephard, Barry Hopkins, Barry Kroeger, Betty Caine, Brad Barker, Carl Emory, Carl Frank, Charlotte Holland, Craig McDonnell, Elspeth Eric, Eric Dressler, Fess Johnson, Frank Behrens, Helen Shields, James Van Dyke, John Griggs, John Sylvester, Karl Swenson, Lawson Zerbie, Mercedes McCambridge, Paul Mann, Ruth Yorke, Vinton Hayworth, Walter Vaughn, Wendell Holmes, and William Quinn
The result is a witch's broth of shivers and suspense that will knock you for a ghoul!
Murder At Midnight was issued by several transcriptions services, and the show titles and show numbers were different on them. The shows in Radio Archives, Murder At Midnight Volume 2 came from a set of MacGregor and Ingram disks and the show numbers are taken from the disks themselves. Being syndicated, stations could broadcast the programs in any sequence, on any day of the week.
Six hours, twelve tales of Mystery and Terror, restored to sparkling audio quality by Radio Archives.

5 of 5 Murders occurring only at midnight...... May 28, 2022
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
If a macabre series of murder stories is of interest to you, this vintage radio show excels in creating episodes of this genre that are on the "campy" side, especially in having the gruesome murder always occur at the stroke of midnight, generally coming from the strokes of an old clock.  The stories are "over the top" but never fail to entertain those who enjoy primarily a good murder story in a dark and mysterious setting.The Radio Archives staff is to be complemented on the restoration of this oftentimes forgotten radio show.  The sound quality has been restored better than any of the other available sets from other sources of this mid-1940's vintage radio show.  Unique artwork is on the cover of each available Volume. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
