The Good Old Days of Radio Show

08-02-2024 • 39 minutos

Today's episode is one of the all-time great stories of drawn out tension, and is an excellent example of the power of the spoken word and the great unsung radio actors of the 1950s. The story is "Poison" by Roald Dahl. Jack Webb (best known for his portrayal of Joe Friday on "Dragnet") and William Conrad ("Cannon" on the 1971 TV series) are Americans in India, one of whom is trapped in bed with a deadly snake.
