The Whistler
Volume 21
 
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 Whistler stood out as a rather unique crime anthology program, and not simply because of its unusual narrator. Most crime shows of the period in which The Whistler became famous either were clear whodunits, leaving the identity of the criminal until the end, or straightforward retellings of crimes and their consequences. The writers of The Whistler wrote the character in such a way that listeners could feel like they were involved in an almost illicit conversation with The Whistler, the witness to these horribly thrilling tales they heard each week. The Whistler would make pithy, sardonic comments without interfering and allowed listeners to even be somewhat complicit, watching with him as criminals received the justice due them.
 
Less host and more narrator, The Whistler, particularly after 1944, took no part in the unfolding drama. He led readers into each episode, letting the unwitting characters stumble and fall into their own mistakes and traps.
 
The characters in the stories told on The Whistler were not always bad people, but more likely just average citizens, like the show’s listeners. Regardless, the usual outcome for the protagonists was hardly ever positive. There were episodes, however, that The Whistler’s final words did not necessarily spell out death and gloom for those involved. A few shows actually ended on, if not on a happy note, at least with the possibility of hope for those involved. This actually makes The Whistler, as a whole, a show as focused on humanity itself as it is on the darker side of things.
 
Listen as The Whistler exposes the darkness of men’s souls in this chilling Radio Archives collection. The Whistler Volume 21 from Radio Archives, featuring twelve broadcasts restored to sparkling digital quality, as originally aired in 1949 and 1950.
