Old Time Radio - Sci-Fi Favorites


© Old Time Radio Catalog via Dokumentationsarchiv Funk

This collection includes Science Fiction listener favorites from a wide range of Old Time Radio classic series. From Lights Out to favorites such as Mysterious Traveler and Quite Please Though many of these series are better known for other genres such as horror, drama, and others, their endeavors into the adaptable field of science fiction proves successful. H.G. Wells mind-boggling story The Time Machine about the 19th century scientist who discovered a way to travel through time 100,000 years into the future is performed on Escape. Lux Radio’s The Day the Earth Stood Still presents the famous story about the day that aliens invaded Earth is also included in this fine collection. Nathanial Hawthorne’s short story Dr. Heidegger's Experiment on Favorite Story questions the marvels of modern medical science and examines the consequence of a medicinal version of the fountain of youth. Also included are some very rare shows Cloud Nine and Planet Man .
Lights Out debuted in 1934 and was radio's premier horror series created by writer/director Wyllis Cooper, a innovative radio writer who worked on other notable shows such as The Emperor Builder and Quiet Please. Lights Out was one of the first old time radio shows that developed the medium of radio with distinct sound effects and dramas intended to be heard. Cooper was succeeded by Arch Oboler, one of radio's greatest dramatic talents. He brought a new level of psychological horror to radio into the scripts.
The show featured shows ranging from science fiction, fantasy, horror, to crime drama.
Mysterious Traveler had no sponsor through the entire run of the series. Written and directed by Robert Arthur and David Kogan, the radio series began on the Mutual Broadcasting System, December 5, 1943 and ran until September 16, 1952.
”Tired of the everyday grind? Ever dream of a life of … romantic adventure? Want to get away from it all? We offer you … ESCAPE! The famous opening to the show, often worded to suit the events of the moment or season, warns the intrepid radio listener of adventure that is anything but... everyday. Like its sister show on the radio, Suspense, it is considered one of the top shows ever done on radio. Producer-directors of the show included William N. Robson (Suspense) and Norman McDonald (Gunsmoke), both masters of the craft of radio realism and action adventure, laced with thrills and chills. Escape's writers (including Ray Bradbury), music and sound effects all wove magic into these half-hour episodes, many of which were based on great writer's tales.
