The SUSPENSE story
During radio’s heyday in the 1930s and 1940s, anthology programs were wildly popular. But even among classics such as ‘Inner Sanctum’, ‘Lights Out!’ and ‘The Whistler’, one series stood out: SUSPENSE. Featuring a virtual who’s-who of Hollywood royalty, SUSPENSE ran for an unprecedented 20 years and 900-plus episodes before finally going off the air on September 30th, 1962- a date that is widely considered the end of radio’s ‘Golden Age’.
However, that wasn’t the end of the SUSPENSE story. Fifty-three years later, John C. Alsedek and Dana Perry-Hayes decided to do a revival of the show, with all-new stories and a style reminiscent of the original without being a copy. Since its premiere on Sirius XM in the fall of 2012, the resurrected SUSPENSE has aired on nearly 300 radio stations worldwide, becoming one of the world’s most popular radio dramas. It has also been nominated for several major honors, including the prestigious Peabody Award.
Recorded in Hollywood, California with an eclectic and ever-growing company of actors, SUSPENSE is a ‘Twilight Zone for the ears’- a whole new story every episode. So join us each week here on AM 880 KIXI for another pair of tales well-calculated to keep you in…SUSPENSE!
