On the podcast this week we premier a new series to the show called, Five Minute Mysteries. Also, it wouldn’t be right to blog about “Quiet, Please!” and not have one of their amazing programs. We have creepy one! Do you believe in coincidences? I don’t. B. Wilson sent us a story that is very strangely similar to our OTR tale. You have to check this out. Quiet, please! was an OTR fantasy and horror series created by Wyllis Cooper and Earnest Chappel. It was first broadcast in 1947 and ran until 1949. The series was lost to time until Chappel's widow found a box of original transcriptions of the show. A total of 89 episodes have been recovered. The only downside is that the sound quality fluctuates a lot. During the golden age of radio, stations would reuse these discs and over time the quality would become rough. In some cases, you can even hear remnants of old recordings on them. Even so, it was an amazing discovery for OTR horror. Our story suffers from the bleed through of a previous use. If you listen closely you can hear ghostly voices in the background. It a strange tale, listen to it and let me know what you think. It is called Some People Don’t Die and it first aired on December 8, 1947.
