Episode 3 -- "The Little People", Lights Out
Welcome to Old-Time Radio Essentials, a new podcast wherein a specific episode from a selected OTR series is presented, and then discussed by three co-hosts: Pete Lutz, Jane St. John and Paul Arbisi; to determine whether or not it meets the following criteria:
1. Is it truly representative of that series? (Can anyone point to it and say, "Yes, that is what [NAME OF SERIES] was all about.")
2. Is it an episode worthy of inclusion in any and every OTR aficionado's private collection?
So with this in mind, we three bring you, as our third installment (and Jane's choice), this episode of "Lights Out" (aka "Lights Out Everybody"), from a rebroadcast in 1943 or '44. We'll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it!

"Do you dare to go down into...THE CELLAR?"
Welcome to Episode Two of our all-new horror/suspense anthology series! Our stories are either original, or inspired by, or adapted from pulp fiction and classic literature. Season One of THE CELLAR already has 17 episodes written and cast, with more to come. Expect eerie or suspenseful tales from authors such as Ray Bradbury, August Derleth, Henry Kuttner and Robert E. Howard! Not only these, but you can expect an audio adaptation of a Eugene O'Neill play, AND Pete Lutz's own adaptation of a Lon Chaney-starred silent film. The possibilities are endless, the thrills are non-stop, and the stories are the best possible ones we could find.
With that in mind we proudly present Paul Witcover's tale, "Moonlight Becomes Magenta", adapted by my friend and fellow audio dramatist Mark Slade. Set in old Mexico, we hear the story of a young boy forced by fate to seek vengeance against the man who killed his father, and the supernatural elements that helped him do it. Viva la revolución!
