TGG October Spooktacular 2021 – Suspense: Fugue in C Minor

An excellent gothic tale tonight with Fugue in C Minor

Tonight we’re going to enjoy a real triple treat episode of Suspense starring Vincent Price and Ida Lupino in a radio play penned by the great Lucille Fletcher. While most film studios truly didn’t like seeing just about any of their contract players appearing on radio broadcasts, Suspense was one of the few which could pull in top Hollywood talent on nearly every broadcast; especially after its first couple of seasons.

This is right about the time when suspense really hit its stride with standout episode after standout episode. Even if they weren’t all of a supernatural bend.

Here we have a bit of a Victorian age tale of the gothic which would sure to have pleased the likes of Edgar Allan Poe. Love is in the air but is there also murder in the wind? Is Vincent Price’s character simply a lovelorn widower or could he be a maniacal murderer? What dark secrets will Ida Lupino discover?

Turn out the lights and give a listen to Fugue in C Minor on Suspense as it aired on June 1st, 1944.

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…
