Hello Sucker (1952)

"Hello Sucker" was an old time radio program that was made to protect consumers from getting ripped off, scammed, or some how cheated. I find this show very humorous I hope you enjoy.

"Don't let the term 'Hello Sucker!' refer to you! Protect yourself!"

Episode: Portrait Of A Sucker (2/9/1952)

I love Lucy

I Love Lucy is one of the most popular television shows in the history of television. Unfortunately the radio show never made it past its pilot audition. Luckily the television show was a huge success. Even though the radio show didn't last i really enjoyed this episode "Breaking the lease" and i wish they did more of this program. The television and radio series "I Love Lucy" happened to be a spin-off of Lucille Ball's "My favorite husband" which was a huge success. Hope you enjoy the one and only "I love Lucy" radio show titled "Breaking the lease". Enjoy!!

Episode: Breaking the lease (2/26/1952)

Episode: Future Fear (8/15/1980)

Nightfall is the title of a radio drama series produced and aired by CBC Radio (see Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) from July 1980 to June 1983. While primarily a supernatural/horror series, Nightfall featured some episodes in other genres, such as science fiction, mystery, fantasy, and human drama. One episode was even adapted from a folk song by Stan Rogers. Some of Nightfall's episodes were so terrifying that the CBC registered numerous complaints and some affiliate stations dropped it. Despite this, the series went on to become one of the most popular shows in CBC Radio history, running 100 episodes that featured a mix of original tales and adaptations of both classic and obscure short stories. reference:
