You'll Be Dead In A Week - Part 3 of 3 (Aired November 30, 1944)
Being that it was a serial instead of an anthology series, there was no host, nor was there need for one. Announcer Gayne Whitman would recap the situation from the week before, and sometimes, the other characters would break the fourth wall and chime in with observations of their own. The announcer was very straight sounding and presented no personality of his own, but the recurring characters filled that need (especially the country sounding Skip Turner). Listening to these ongoing stories, it is very easy to see how addictive they became. The characters, the atmosphere, and of course, the spooky mysteries draw the audience right in. Whether in a foggy graveyard or one of the many far away and exotic locations-- the show was perfect for radio and stimulating the vivid imaginations of old and young alike. As Captain Friday himself would pitch it, "If you like high adventure-- the stealth of intrigue-- blood and thunder, come with me!" Show Notes From Radio Horror Hosts.
