For Halloween Listening — A Little (Scary) Treat

Some of you may remember radio shows and serials. You listened to the show or story but had to conjure the images, giving them texture and color. [I believe the mind’s eye provides the best imagery and special effects.] I was born in 1959 and at that point TV had begun overtaking radio as the dominant medium. In the decades since then, the visual medium (whether offline or online) continues to dominate. But this evening (or tomorrow on Halloween) I’d like to invite you to do something that might be different than what you’re used to… step back in time to December 5, 1946 (the original broadcast date)… turn out the lights and close your eyes. And listen to this scary little treat.
