Hermit's Cave Old Time Radio Program

30 minute horror show

The Hermit's Cave was a radio horror anthology series. As the wind howled, the ancient Hermit narrated his horror fantasies from his cave. The show syndicated by WJR Detroit in the mid-1930s, sponsored by Olga Coal after the first two years.

The hermit was not kind to the characters he narrated, they died in gruesome horrific ways: chopped, bashed, mashed, and worse. Luckily for the audience the sound effects created by Dwight Hauser were up to the task. The cackling character of the Hermit was played by John Kent, Charles Penman, Toby Grimmer, and Klock Ryder. William Conrad produced when the show moved to KMPC Los Angeles with Mel Johnson as the Hermit (1940-42), followed by John Dehner (1942-44). The stories were written by Lou Huston and Herbert R. Connor.
