Suspense
Volume 16
 
 
“We invite you to enjoy stories that keep you in…Suspense!”
 
Suspense, in many ways, is one of the only ‘perfect storms’ from Radio’s Golden Age. Thanks largely to the guiding hand of producer William Spier, the program grew into the ideal marriage of fantastic storytelling, top talent, amazing production values, and even stunning music and sound effects.
 
Acclaimed mystery novelist John Dickson Carr was one of the regular scriptwriters for Suspense. Carr is generally regarded as one of the greatest writers of Golden Age mysteries - complex, plot-driven stories in which the puzzle is paramount. He was influenced in this regard by the works of Gaston Leroux and by the Father Brown stories of G. K. Chesterton. Carr was a master of the locked room mystery, in which a detective solves apparently impossible crimes. He also created Dr. Fell, who various literary critics and scholars have dubbed as one of the three great successors to Sherlock Holmes - the other two being Father Brown and Nero Wolfe. His 1943 half-hour radio play Cabin B-13 was expanded into a series on CBS in 1948-49 for which Carr wrote all 25 scripts.
 
"If I ever do any more radio work, I want to do it on Suspense, where I get a good chance to act," Cary Grant was quoted as saying back in 1943. Grant’s great love for Suspense was due to William Spier. Spier was chief of the writers' department and director of development at CBS in 1940. As co-producer of Suspense, Spier developed the show’s thriller/chiller/macabre genre into a formula with human drama that attracted the finest of Hollywood's elite as well as the cream of radio's great actors – including Grant, Orson Welles, and many others.
 
Considered a true classic and a hallmark of entertainment from Radio’s Golden Age, Suspense still thrills and chills listeners today. Find hours of mystery, terror, and enjoyment in Suspense Volume 16, restored to Sparkling audio quality by Radio Archives.

4 of 5 Suspense and Roma Wines October 18, 2020
Reviewer: Mr J Hosha Esq from Harwich, MA United States  
I enjoy the shows and the quality is very good, but the relentless Roma Wine ads are interrupting, distracting and annoying. These and the ads on other shows may be a deal breaker. I may not purchase any more shows with ads. It's a shame they can't be edited out of the programs during the restoration process.

5 of 5 X Minus One - Volume October 12, 2020
Reviewer: Curt Fukuda from Mountain View, CA United States  
You can find "X Minus One" episodes free on the internet. But the quality is often mediocre or unlistenable. Radio Archives must have some kind of magic wayback machine, where they travel back in time and record the episodes fresh off the transcription discs. The excellent quality of their recordings unleash the wonder and awe X Minus One was intended to evoke.
