Creepy old radio shows are best enjoyed on strange old radios :)

You know, I've got a couple of creepy old radios that I'll have to post photos of.  I don't know anything about them, and y'all can probably tell me if they're trash or treasures.  I'll do that after Christmas!  ;)

It looks like it's about to say       "I'm sorry, Dave, I can't do that..."

Dave's not here man...  ;D
If you're a long way from home,
Can't sleep at night.
Grab your telephone,
Something just ain't right.


ROTFL!  A 2001 and Cheech and Chong reference in one post! Y'all must be as old as I am :)


If you want the motherlode of OTR programming (creepy or otherwise) visit The best collections there are done by the Old Time Radio Researchers Group (OTRR). At present, their Suspense series comprises 36 zip files, each of which extracts to a collection of shows in mp3 format (around 20-22 shows per file) along with relevant pictures, synopsis, alternate versions etc.
OTRR researches the shows, finds all the material they can about them and pulls it all together along with the best available version of each show.
There are also lots of OTR shows that haven't gotten the OTRR treatment yet. More old time radio than you can ever listen to and it's free!

Steve, just describe the description (reduntandly) of the radio as best you can.  I'll put on my private detective fedora and look for it.

Did you say it was a maybe a Zenith?  Can you further describe your assailant?

I'm not a cop.  I don't carry a badger.  Just interested.

I don't carry a badger ?

Maybe you OTTER !!!    ;D
Never met a phone I didn't like !
