1. The radio version of Suspense really didn’t step up the horror content until after producer William Spier moved on; Spier had an unwritten rule that the program wouldn’t be a “spook show” but he occasionally bent this to include the adaptations of The Dunwich Horror and Donovan’s Brain that you mention. Another famous Suspense horror outing during the Spier years is 1946’s “The House in Cypress Canyon,” a tale of werewolves and haunted houses starring Robert Taylor and Cathy Lewis. Great piece, Terry!
