Sorry, Wrong Number

Starring Agnes Moorehead, this is called the most effective radio drama ever written and the best episode from the Suspense series, itself called one of the best series of the Golden Age of Radio (1920s-1950s). Mrs. Stevenson is connected into a telephone conversation between two men. She can hear the two men, but they cannot hear her. Apparently, they are plotting to murder a woman at 11:15 that night, just as a train passes outside. Mrs. Stevenson realizes she may be the murder victim. LEARN more at the Radio Nouspace website.

The Hitchhiker

Essentially, a ghost story. Driving cross country, Ronald Adams sees a strange man hitchhiking again and again. Adams becomes obsessed with finding this hitchhiker, and learning his identity. LEARN more at the Radio Nouspace website.
