Description
 
Suspense
Volume 17
 
 
“This is the Man in Black, here to introduce this weekly half-hour of...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.
 
A man of both taste and ambition, William Spier began his tenure with Suspense by gathering his cast and crew together and giving them the word that, from now on, they would all play an intrinsic part in the creation of each show. As with any sustained show, budgets were tight - but this didn’t mean that the people Spier had to work with didn’t have talents and abilities far greater than they had usually been given the chance to display.
 
Spier called upon musical director Bernard Hermann and, later, Lucien Moraweck to not only write and conduct cues for each show, but asked that their music play a role in each drama - almost as if it were another character. Sound effects man Berne Surrey, who was used to being giving a list of the necessary effects for each show just a few hours before the broadcast, now found himself working side by side with Spier to plot out where the various sounds would be most effective and just what they should be.
 
Spier expected nothing less than perfection from his actors, young but widely experienced radio hands such as Roger De Koven, Hans Conreid, Alice Frost, Helen Lewis, Ted Osborne, Frank Readick, Martin Gabel, Ted de Corsia, and Michael Fitzmaurice. He was also willing to risk on-air disaster by often throwing them a curve at the last minute. Spier wanted a tense, edge-of-your-seat kind of show — and the best way to get this, in his opinion, was by keeping his entire cast and crew as tense and on-edge as the audience would be. This is why Suspense grew into the radio powerhouse it became and why fans still thrill to it today.
 
Discover how this program is truly the total package, expertly written stories, top performances from radio’s best actors, quality production values, and enough terror and mystery to make it fun. Suspense, Volume 17 presents ten hours of this radio classic restored to Sparkling audio quality by Radio Archives.
