The Whistler
Volume 4
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!
One of the best remembered radio shows of its type, The Whistler chronicled the twists and turns in the lives of unsuspecting characters each week. Usually, regular people living day to day lives who made one horrible life changing decision were at the center of each episode, caught and strangled by their mistakes, their own emotions, their self destructive tendencies. And from a distance, almost never actively participating, never reaching out to help or to stop the inevitable doom was The Whistler. An observer who offered succinct thoughts on the rights and wrongs of those he watched committed and who, when the final shoe dropped, left listeners trembling with his creepy, lingering laugh.
Described by many as an anthology program, and others as a horror or mystery show, The Whistler indeed was all these things. In many ways, however, the program was first and foremost a crime show. What made it stand out from other programs of the same type was the use of the show’s namesake, the unseen, almost never participating observer with the eerie laugh and often chilling platitudes to share each week. The Whistler was not the first host of this type, but definitely left his mark as one of the most memorable.
Experience the weird justice of The Whistler in this astounding Radio Archives collection. Listen to twelve broadcasts, restored to sparkling digital quality as originally aired from November, 1942 to February, 1943.

The mysteries continue........ March 24, 2017
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
One of the best remembered shows from the Golden Age of Radio.  Many of the great voices of Radio can be heard on the mystery shows from this series. Gerald Mohr and his "million dollar voice" can be heard on many along with the other voices that are easily recognized.

Radio Archives has again restored these radio shows back to a sound and tonal quality probably not heard since these shows were originally broadcast on the air.  They far surpass anything available on the market and are in the slower CD speed as opposed to the inferior MP3 discs.  One hour in length, but well worth it for the sound quality produced on each disc.

Each Volume comes in a sturdy plastic case with individual sleeves for each CD giving added protection and the front of each Volume is adorned with a colorful artwork, generally relating to one of the shows within the specific Volume.
