Description
 
Suspense
Volume 12
 
 
“And now...another tale well-calculated to keep you in...Suspense!”
 
With a history full of twists and turns much like many of its own episodes, Suspense is a program that lives on as one of the best produced radio shows of the classic era as well as a collection of tense, well told stories.
 
Heard today, Suspense remains a true radio classic — and one for which there are very few equals. As with any series, the programs have their ups and downs but, for the most part, it’s impressive just how well these “well calculated tales” still stand up to critical ears. The best shows in the series - the legendary and much-repeated “Sorry, Wrong Number” featuring a bravura performance by Agnes Moorehead, for instance, or “Dime a Dance” starring Lucille Ball as a dance hall girl being stalked by a murderous customer - still retain their power to both shock and engross the listener.
 
Revenge was the motivation behind what many consider Suspense’s greatest episode – “Sorry, Wrong Number. “It first premiered on Suspense back on May 25, 1943. Agnes Moorehead created the role in the first performance and again in several later radio productions. It was broadcast nationwide seven times between 1943 and 1948 with Agnes Moorehead creating and re-creating all the performances. Lucille Fletcher was inspired to write “Sorry, Wrong Number” to avenge herself on a well-dressed woman with an obnoxious manner who refused to allow Fletcher to go ahead of her in the line at a local grocery on Manhattan’s East Side. Fletcher was buying food for her sick child.
 
Suspense, which aired its first episode in 1942, was one of the longest running radio programs during the Golden Age of Radio. It was one of the few radio programs that had a 20-year or more run.
 
Thrills and chills delivered by top actors giving the best performances of their radio careers await you in Suspense Volume 12 from Radio Archives. Enjoy hours of this classic program restored to Sparkling audio quality.

5 of 5 One of radio's best remembered shows......... April 26, 2019
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
SUSPENSE always intrigued the listener with each program in the series.  It holds up very well today.  The show would not have lasted for its' 20 years on radio had such not been the case.  Agnes Moorehead's performances of "Sorry, Wrong Number" probably led the list of well known shows from the series, especially in light of the number of request's from listener's that a particular show be repeated.  "Sorry, Wrong Number" probably helped Agnes Moorehead to rightly earn the title of the "First Lady of Suspense".

The Radio Archives staff has again restored this volume back to a level of audio clarity which would have rivaled the show when it was initially aired on radio.  You won't find available from other sources any other shows from the Radio Archives Library with the audio quality restoration techniques found in each of their offerings from the early 1930's into the later years comprising the Golden Age of Radio.  

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
