    Everyone on the program is jokingly addressed as either 'professor' or 'doctor', thereby attempting to give the impression that they have a certain lofty, highbrow distinction. However, Gene Hamilton contradicts this image when he states that the Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street is out to "give culture its lumps", which it does, in a very delightfully musical, and humorous, way.

    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.

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.

    "Doc" Turner was one of the least likely heroes that appeared in the pulp magazine stories. He was a little old pharmacist who ran a drug store in the slums of New York, where just about everyone came to him when they had problems. Oh, and what problems they had! Werewolves and vampires mixed in with extortionists and gangsters. And solve their problems he did, with the aid of his strapping red-headed assistant, mechanic Jack Ransom, and his young stock boy Abe Ginsberg. This volume features "Killer’s Circus", "The Devil’s Candlestick", and much more!

    Though the romantic drama anthology nature of Curtain Time usually eschewed any kind of "star", actor Olan Soule portrayed most of the male leads on the program, often opposite actresses like Betty Lou Gerson and Louise Fitch. (Soule later graduated to Nighter in 1943, frequently acting opposite Barbara Luddy.) Directed by Blair Walliser, with music by Henry Weber and the announcing chores handled by Don Gordon, the production offered plenty of the same fare as featured on First Nighter.

    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. By 1937, Ace Magazines tried to enter the field with Eerie Stories. Unfortunately, it didn't catch on, only lasting one issue before folding. This is that issue. Eerie Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s listeners in audiobook format.
