Old Time Radio's History of Horror

The Golden Age of Sci-fi & Horror Shows

From the 1930s through the 1950s, America's most imaginative horror & sci-fi stories came alive each night on radio. Listeners would experience awesome adventures, shocking thrills, and incredible flights of fantasy, all with their mind's eye. By the early 1960s, however, television had robbed radio of most of its actors, writers, and ultimately, its audience. But neither TV nor film have ever been able to invade the brains of those it entertained like radio did. It was there that radio worked its greatest magic, conjuring up strange, new worlds and amazing tales of terror, and it did it all with words, sounds, and the listener's own imagination. Join author Kurt Kuersteiner as he revisits this lost art form to examine why it was so effective at telling horror and science fiction anthologies. A special focus is given to the horror hosts who introduced (and in some cases, acted in) these classic tales of terror. If you enjoy serious science fiction and/ or dramatic horror stories, then you'll find plenty to enjoy in Old Time Radio's History of Horror!
