Horror On The Radio: Coincidence and Dead Earnest

Tales of horror come in various media formats and one that has kept fans up at night are radio dramas.  For Halloween Month, I’ll share some of my favorite horror/mystery/thriller stories from classic radio dramas. 

I have returned my dear followers with two more tales that’ll keep your hair standing on end. Today’s frightening tales are from the classic radio shows The Whistler and Suspense.

We begin with The Whistler and this episode’s titled Coincidence. It first aired on November 19th, 1945.

Here’s the synopsis: A woman commits suicide when her sister Elise steals her husband. When he rejects her, having learned the truth about his wife francia’s death, Elise burns the suicide note so it looks like murder. Occurrences transpire in such a way, coincidentally, so that a murderous thug is seen, but the husband, Ross is fingered. But at the inquest, she gets tripped up!

And here’s the our strange tale:

The following story will definitely keep you in suspense till the end! This Suspense episode’s titled Dead Earnest. This episode aired on March 24th, 1949.

Here’s the synopsis:”Ernest Bowers suffers an attack of catalepsy while crossing the street, lapsing into a coma that resembles death. Believing he was killed by a passing car, his body is sent to the city morgue… to be embalmed.

And here’s the story:

Enjoy this week’s frightening tales for they may be your last!
