Description
 
The Whistler
Volume 5
 
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 most memorable aspects of The Whistler was the theme music. Providing the opening and closing for each episode, the theme was actually whistled, setting a chill early on and cementing it in listeners as the show came to its inevitable usually doom laden end. The whistling for the theme was provided for 13 years by Dorothy Roberts, each week whistling the 37 notes that comprised the tune, thirteen to open it, eleven leading into the actual story, and 13 to end the episode. The theme’s creator, Wilbur Hatch, responsible for leading the Orchestra and composing all the music for the show, once said he believed that only one person in 20 could whistle The Whistler theme perfectly.
 
In the early episodes of The Whistler, the omniscient narrator with the creepy laugh would actually sometimes interact without actually participating in the stories. Writer-Producer J. Donald Wilson would at times have The Whistler act as the conscience of an episode’s protagonist, debating what the lead character should do next and usually pushing him or her to the deadliest decision. Then The Whistler would tell the listeners how the story played out. In 1944, this changed when George Allen became producer-director. The Whistler no longer played anyone’s conscience and the ending of each episode was fully played out, not summarized.
 
Follow The Whistler into the dark recesses of the human spirit in this thrilling collection from Radio Archives. Twelve broadcasts from 1943 restored to sparkling digital quality.
