Lights Out, Everybody: Mystery and Horror

Lights Out, Everybody: Mystery and Horror

During the Golden Age of Radio

Radio was known as a "theater of the mind," combining words and sounds in such way that listeners could use their imaginations to create vivid—and sometimes terrifying—"pictures." 
Join radio historian Steve Darnall for a look at how radio offered "the fear you can hear" with samples from some of the medium's best-known mystery and horror show.
