Space Patrol fans rejoice. Well, sort of. I’ve uploaded my monstrous collection of nine episodes to the server. Reading the Wikipedia page, it looks like there are at least a hundred other episodes available, but still, it’s a start. I know absolutely nothing about this show, but I figured other people might be interested. I’ll add more episodes as I get a hold of them.
There’s a nice little reminiscing article over at wickedlocal.com. In it, the author looks back to the glory days of old time radio, reflecting on the stars and the music of the time. There’s a great part of the article mentioning that Boston University now holds a collection of four thousand old time radio shows. I found this funny because that seems to be an average amount of episodes that a typical otr fan has accumulated. This is a good read. Enjoy!
I don’t know whether I like this episode, or I hate this episode, but one thing is for certain; it kind of disturbs me. It’s not that the episode is outright scary. Actually, quite the contrary, it has a high cheese content. It’s just the premise that gives me the willies. In it, a young couple stumble into a forbidden tomb. They don’t desecrate it or do anything wrong. They just open a door that should have been left shut. Enraged by their presence, the spirit of the tomb follows the couple all over the world, driving them mad. No matter what they do, they cannot shake that creeping presence until, well … I won’t ruin the ending. Just do yourself a favor … if a tomb has a “Do not Distrub” sign hanging on it, you’d do yourself a favor to heed it.
After a week that felt like being drawn and quartered, I return back to Jezner with thirteen new shows added to the library. This is my “extensive” collection of “The Six Shooter”, starring Jimmy Stewart. I wish I can say a few things about this collection, but truthfully, I don’t even know how managed to come by these episodes. If you are into westerns and like good old Jimmy, then this show looks right up your alley

If you couldn’t tell by the lower rate of posts this month, I’m currently engaged in the busiest time of year at my day job. If I were working retail, this would be the Christmas season and although my own personal Black Friday is week behind me now, I’m fighting to get to the finish line (mid-September). That being, I started to compile a list of todos for Jezner, and I wanted to open this up to everyone who might like to contribute. Are there any features on the site that you would like to have? Are there any shows you would like to see upload onto the servers? If there’s something that can be improved, do let know. Once I get over my current hump, my plan is to create a priority list, then get things moving again. In any case, I do appreciate the input.
I find it kind of funny when going back through my Hall of Creep archive that most of the shows have been produced by Suspense. I promise that the next update will be of a different show. For the time being, here’s a show that really creeped me out back in the day. Imagine, if you will, that you are out driving in a rather derelict part of the world, and instead of taking the known route, you take an off traveled route. Now, imagine if you just heard an axe murderer escaped from the local insane asylum, and your car just happens to run out of gas. Stuck in pouring rain with no place to go, you hear a knock on the window from a woman seeking shelter in the rain. Such is premise of this show, and it is creepy. It stars Cary Grant who does a great job at freaking you out. Enjoy!
Sean mentioned this episode awhile back, and oh yeah, it is a good one. Imagine traveling to a lush jungle with half a dozen guys and discovering the equivalent of a billion dollars in uranium. Do you think your relationship would last? After all, the first one back to civilization is the one who gets to file the claim. This is the premise of this story. A group of prospectors lead by Vincent Price make the trip of a lifetime which ends not in glory, but rather, lie, deceit, and of course, a bloodbath. This is an awesome episode. Enjoy.
