The Whistler
Volume 11
 
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!”
 
Some radio scholars identify The Whistler as the first storyteller of his kind on the radio. Even though he was preceded by The Shadow by about ten years, The Whistler had an all knowing aspect to him, while The Shadow and other more normal hosts of such shows had not had to that point. Also, The Whistler was less a bookend host and more of a passive observer, often bordering on seemingly being a participant, simply because of the irony laced, sometimes humorous and always on point comments he would make throughout the program. The Whistler, as a character, showed maturity in the storyteller that other shows would go on to copy.
 
Because of this and several other innovative aspects of the program, The Whistler proved so popular that in 1946, a CBS owned radio station, WBBM, started its own version of the famous series. Even though this run of The Whistler did not have Hollywood or “Whistler’s Children” at its disposal, it did make great use of local actors and actresses, drawing from a large repertory company in Chicago. Everett Clarke filled the role of The Whistler on this program, sponsored by Meister Brau beer. This connected it to the West Coast show, as Clarke also at times acted as The Whistler in the show’s original incarnation as well.
 
In full total, 692 episodes of The Whistler were produced. Approximately more than 400 have survived, meaning a majority of the series is still in existence. This is interesting because fans can truly experience the chills and thrills as listeners did originally.
 
Listen as The Whistler exposes the darkness of men’s souls in this chilling Radio Archives collection. Restored to sparkling digital quality in The Whistler, Volume 11, with original twelve CBS network Signal Oil sponsored broadcasts, as aired from March 4, 1946 to July 1, 1946.

Super November 18, 2018
Reviewer: William Burnett from Chester, MA United States  
I've bought a number of OTR volumes of shows of different genres - crime, mystery, family drama (Dr. Christian), but The Whistler is my all time favorite.  I have all the volumes they've put out now & I treasure them.  Great stories, acting & narration.

Radio Archives Service November 13, 2018
Reviewer: Dianne Lane from North Fork, CA United States  
Radio Archives has to be one of the very best small businesses online.  We have not listened to volume 11 of The Whistler yet but, as always, The Whistler will be a great collection of stories.
