The Suspense radio show ran for over 20 years (from 1940 to its cancellation in 1962) and was still quite popular when it was canceled.

An interesting selection of stories - only one of which didn't enthrall me.

I usually play these stories when I am traveling or if I am waiting to be called for an appointment. They are also good night time listens - although it can cause some odd dreams.

Would heartily recommend.
