The Whistler
Volume 22
 
Audio Clip
 
“I am the Whistler and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales 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 overall tone of The Whistler over its thirteen year run focused on crime and the undoing of those involved in such heinous acts. Normally average citizens, the characters portrayed in The Whistler, were often drawn to commit their crimes by one poor decision, circumstances, or even on occasion, happenstance. Sheer stupidity or lack of control often played into the series of events that would unfold and eventually destroy the characters. The Whistler’s sardonic comments, dark humor, and illicit irony kept such stories from becoming maudlin and made them great thrillers instead.
 
The one constant in every story told on The Whistler was its mysterious narrator. Never named, never described, The Whistler hardly ever interfered or even interacted in the stories of dark crime and impending death, and only did so in the first two years. Although multiple actors would portray him, no clues were ever given to who, or even what The Whistler might be. The embodiment of ironic Justice, perhaps, waiting for the final act in which the guilty paid their dues. Or some instrument of Fate, simply there to chronicle the eventual outcome of all poor decisions. Regardless, The Whistler remains one of the most evocative, mysterious characters of classic radio.
 
While the Whistler’s identity was a mystery, other voices on the program were well known by its listeners. Actors on the program included Gerald Mohr, Hans Conried, Lurene Tuttle, Cathy and Elliot Lewis, and other names especially well known in radio.
 
Thrill to chilling tales of crime told only as The Whistler can in this remarkable Radio Archives collection. The Whistler Volume 22, featuring twelve broadcasts restored to sparkling digital quality, as originally aired in 1950.
