DARK FANTASY was an series dedicated to dealings with the unknown.
Originating from radio station WKY, Oklahoma City, it was written
by Scott Bishop (of "Mysterious Traveler" and "The Sealed Book"
fame) and was heard Fridays over NBC stations. Keith Paynton served
as announcer. The program lasted from 1941 to 1942.
The shows covered horror, science fiction and murder mysteries.
Although the show did not become as popular as Inner Sanctum or
Lights Out, it did produce good supernatural stories to keep you
up at night.
All of our Old Time Radio Programs are in MP3 format. You
can play them on your computer, you can transfer them to MP3
players (like the IPod), but, by and large, you cannot play
them on stereos, walkmen, or car radios.
The sound quality of Old Time Radio Programs can vary greatly.
Some episodes are excellent, others you have to turn up the
volume a little and ignore the static. All of the episodes can
be listened to and enjoyed. You can listen to our free samples
to get a feel for how the programs sound.
