Tonight brings our final episode of Quiet Please for this year’s edition of the Spooktacular. It’s a rather strange taste of the macabre as a near penniless writer takes a room, in an ancient house, with an elderly man and his daughter. But why does the author only hear the girl but never see her?
I wish the sound quality was much better with this recording but when it comes to Quiet Please we have to take what we can get. You can certainly make out the goings on but I will mention the payoff isn’t spelled out so it pays to pay attention.
Turn out the lights and give a listen to Clarissa on Quiet Please as it aired April 19th, 1948.

On a quick side note, most visitors to TGG probably don’t know I ran an old time radio website quite a few years back and I have tens of thousands of radio shows in my collection. Each of the programs I’ll share during the Spooktacular have had their audio personally cleaned up by me to remove many of the pops, crackles, and hisses so common with old time radio recordings. These aren’t pristine by any means but keep in mind the original broadcasts you’ll be hearing are anywhere from fifty to eighty years old…
