This is a 64 KBS version of a weekly program that began on a now-defunct low power FM station (KSOW) in Cottage Grove, OR Since there seems to be some interest in the show I have decided to continue. In this connection, I will post a new show by Tuesday or Wednesday of each week. I will post a new show by Tuesday or Wednesday of each week.

In the main, each episode consists of four approximately 30-minute long programs (not always, as
sometimes I use a longer form show, so it may be 3 or fewer) and some filler to bring them in at 120 minutes.
The Avengers, South Africa:
Straight From The Shoulder (1971-73).
My Father the Cat. A story by Henry Slesar (12/57).
Inner Sanctum – The Listener (10/7/46).


Segment One And Two:

The Avengers, South Africa – Straight From The Shoulder (1971-73).

The Avengers Radio series was recorded at Sonovision Studios in Johannesberg and was transmitted between 6 December 1971 and 28 December 1973 on Springbok Radio, the English language service of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC). The episodes were adapted from both Emma Peel and Tara King episodes, (with the Tara King character changed to Emma Peel throughout.) Two British ex-partite actors played the Avengers: Donald Monat as Steed and Diane Appleby as Mrs Peel. With Hugh Rouse as the tongue-in-cheek narrator. The stories were adapted into five, six or sometimes seven fifteen-minute episode serials running Monday though Friday on Springbok Radio. Currently only 19 complete serials survive.

This program was also played in New York on station WBAI on 99.5 FM, from 1977 to the early 1990s.

Straight From The Shoulder was based on, Invitation To A Killing Produced for British TV in late 1967.





Segment Three:

My Father the Cat. A story by Henry Slesar (12/57).

Contains the final 10 min. of Straight from the Shoulder and the reading of a short story from theLibrivox project, My Father the Cat by the American writer Henry Slesar (June 12, 1927-April 2, 2002).

“He wondered if I’d told her everything, and, faltering, I had to admit that I hadn’t. She was wonderful–but human.”

The story first appeared in, Fantastic Universe for December of 1957.

Segment Four:

Inner Sanctum – The Listener (10/7/46).

Taking its name from a popular series of mystery novels, Inner Sanctum Mysteries debuted over NBC’s Blue Network in January 1941.

Inner Sanctum Mysteries featured one of the most iconic openings in radio history. First an organist hit’s a dissonant chord. Next a doorknob turns, and the “creaking door” slowly began to open. So impressive was this opening that when South African radio ran its own version of the show it was called The Creaking Door.

Every week, Inner Sanctum Mysteries told stories of ghosts, murderers and lunatics, with a cast consisting of veteran radio actors. Although Produced in New York, there were occasional guest appearances by Hollywood stars such as Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre and Claude Rains.

“Raymond”, the host, had a droll sense of humor, and an appetite for ghoulish puns. Raymond’s influence can be seen among horror hosts everywhere, from The Crypt-Keeper to Elvira, and even more so among his contemporaries on radio .”Raymond” was played untill 1945 by Raymond Edward Johnson. Then Paul McGrath took over and played “Raymond” until the show ended production in 1952.

Producer Himan Brown was so taken with the creaking door that when he produced and directed The CBS Radio Mystery Theater in the 1970s he would use it again.

Inner Sanctum Mysteries was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1988.
