    Night Watch was radio's first reality show, a program that brought live and authentic police drama to the airwaves. Each week Don Reed accompanied Officer Ron Perkins on the night watch in Culver City, California. Traveling in an unmarked car, Reed used a heavy battery-powered tape recorder, complete with a microphone cleverly concealed inside the casing of a flashlight, to participate in and record real police calls.

    In this third volume of Nightbeat, Frank Lovejoy stars as hard-nosed Chicago Star newsman Randy Stone, a reporter who looks for the human stories behind the headlines. Lovejoy's distinctive voice and manner, combined with excellent scripts and performances by radio veterans like Lurene Tuttle, Peter Leeds, and Jeff Corey, give the series an unusual and engrossing style - literally film noir for the mind.

    In the early months of World War II, radio producer Louis G. Cowan was faced with a problem. Not long before the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, Cowan had joined the radio arm of the War Department's Special Services division, where his primary duties had been to produce radio-based propaganda for civilian audiences. Now, however, hundreds of thousands of newly enlisted soldiers were in desperate need of mainstream entertainment.

    Behind the white fangs of escaped jungle beasts, lurked an unseen but hideous menace. A menace that made cravens of men and women - sending them cringing to their shattered homes under the brutal lash of fear in the city of the sleeping death. And back of the terror of a dread epidemic, Secret Agent "X" glimpsed the shadow of a criminal plot more horrible than any he had ever known.

    An underrated and long-running family series, Dr. Christian comes across today more as a quiet anthology of small-town life than as a straight medical drama, bringing the people of the small town of River's End to life through the eyes of the kindly Dr. Paul Christian. As portrayed by actor Jean Hersholt, Dr. Christian can perhaps best be described as a male Molly Goldberg with a medical degree; a gentle and well-meaning meddler who always manages to lead you in the right direction, whether you want to be led there or not.

    Burning action in the savage skies over Nazi Germany! Written as history was actually unfolding, this story mirrors the horrors of war in 1940. First Czechoslovakia fell. Then, like dominoes, Poland, Finland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Norway, and France. England was planned to be next. Day and night bombing raids over London paved the way. And against this background, "Death Has No Wings" was set.

    When Columbia Workshop debuted on CBS in 1936, the concept of network radio was still in its infancy, just 10 years old. Many within the radio business were undecided about various aspects of this new medium, including whether or not it could yield anything of value, something that can be seen as art and not simply a forgettable derivative of popular culture.

    In 1934, a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names - the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines - weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today.

Eerie Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s listeners in audiobook format.
