EPISODE DESCRIPTION
The Dead Walk At Night (Aired September 28, 1952)
The early 1940s programs opened with Raymond Edward Johnson introducing himself as, "Your host, Raymond," in a mocking sardonic voice. A spooky melodramatic organ score punctuated Raymond's many morbid jokes and playful puns. Raymond's closing was an elongated "Pleasant dreeeammsss?!" His tongue-in-cheek style and ghoulish relish of his own tales became the standard for many such horror narrators to follow, from fellow radio hosts like Ernest Chappell (on Cooper's later series, Quiet, Please) and Maurice Tarplin (on The Mysterious Traveler) to EC Comics' Crypt-Keeper in various incarnations of Tales from the Crypt. When Johnson left the series in 1946, he was replaced by Paul McGrath, who did not keep the "Raymond" name and was known only as "your host" or "Mr. Host." THIS EPISODE: September 28, 1952. CBS network, AFRTS rebroadcast. "The Dead Walk At Night". The tap...tap...tap...of a blind man's cane drives a young man to murder. The script was previously used on "Inner Sanctum" on September 20, 1942. Donald Buka, Paul McGrath (host), Milton Lewis (writer). 23:59. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
