Samhain and Radio Plays


So forgive me if I have mentioned this before--but I adore old radio plays.

He gives links to download his collection--my favourites include anything by The Mysterious Traveler, Lights Out, The Shadow(which he doesn't own), and Dark Fantasy.  He also has much of the history of the recordings, and is just overflowing with information. You can hear Boris Karloff, the master Vincent Price, and many other talented unknown actors, and find a thrill in an art that still survives today on the BBC:)
