Inner Santum – “Tomb It May Concern” – [Radiola]

Inner Sanctum Mysteries debuted over NBCs Blue Network in January 1941.
Every week, Inner Sanctum Mysteries told stories of ghosts, murderers and lunatics. Produced in New York, the cast usually consisted of veteran radio actors. What made Inner Sanctum Mysteries unique among radio horror shows was its host, a slightly-sinister sounding man originally known as Raymond.The host had a droll sense of humor and an appetite for ghoulish puns, and his influence can be seen among horror hosts everywhere, from the Crypt-Keeper to Elvira. It had one of the most memorable openings in radio history: an organist hit a dissonant chord, a doorknob turned and the famous creaking door slowly began to open. This record includes “The Vengeful Corpse” and “The Hermit’s Cave” both tracks run 30 minutes. This was release number 16 and it’s first pressing was in 1972. Great for Halloween or nighttime!
