  •  The CBS Radio Mystery Theater! (8+ / 0-)

    Thank you for bringing that up.  No station around here ever carried it, so at night I'd try to take advantage of the "clear channel" (back when the term didn't have the baggage the brand does now) stations that I could hear in Alabama.  I specifically remember WCKY Cincinnati, WBBM Chicago and KMOX in St. Louis, all carrying that show.  I remember one in which an actor playing Mark Twain narrated one of his darker, creepier tales.

    Anyone catch CBSRMT when it was heard briefly in last year's film "Super 8"?

    •  Welcome. Come in..... (7+ / 0-)

      I got my first transistor radio around 72 and every night I would go to bed, tune into CBS Radio Mystery Theater.

      Most nights I would fall asleep during the commercial break between the second and third act.

      Some nights I would turn it off before the second act because it was too scary.

      And on a really good night I would be able to stay awake and listen to all three acts.

      Yeah, those were the days.

      Measure twice, cut three times, repeat as necessary.
