Nice lineup tonight. Never heard the Clock before.

Again, great job on last week’s thread everyone. I was working 12+ hour days, sorry. The good news is Palm Springs is beautiful if you’re looking for a getaway.

Good morning, Vision! Glad you had a nice trip out there, a hard-working one, anyway.

Keith and I have listened to an episode of Clock before. I think I remember it being kinda weird, mystery stuff. Good lineup! Looking forward to it.

Thanks for the ping. I remember reading Michael Shayne books back in the day.

Good evening guys. Good lineup tonight.

The final program tonight seems to be considered one of the very best of the Inner Sanctum productions.

From wikipedia entry:

"...campy comedy notwithstanding, the stories were usually effective little chillers, mixing horror and humor in equal doses. Memorable episodes included "Terror by Night" (September 18, 1945) and an adaptation of "The Tell-Tale Heart" (August 3, 1941). The latter starred Boris Karloff, who was heard regularly in the first season, starring in more than 15 episodes and returning sporadically thereafter."

Oh, that will be an intense one! Poe’s Tell-Tale Heart is horrific.

Good evening everybody. Great lineup! I’m just finishing my world famous chili. We also have a little fire going on outside to say goodbye to winter. Venus and Jupiter bright in the western sky tonight.

I believe I've read all the Mike Shayne Mystery novels and have them still as a collection. Read a few as a teen. Started collecting them in the late 1980s at used book stores in towns that I would visited, then completed the collection via the web at Advanced Book Exchange.

I feel foolish. I am missing what “demark” means. Duh, on me!

But, I will say this guy sounds like a generic Johnny Dollar with the thousand-dollar bonus, if he brings the girl in on time.

I meant denmark. There was a 5 minute bit around 9:25 which was terrible.

Funny you say that. Steel, was the actor in Michael Shayne ever a JD? It sounds like it; I can think of one early episode in particular.

Ah! I missed that bit—running around doing laundry and all. I understand now.

Goodnight, Vision and Friends!

This is a creepy Inner Sanctum tale beginning!

Good for you.

Yes, Vision, it WAS good for us. Keith's chili is the best in the world, and the fire in our little fire bowl outside was really swell, and the beautiful night sky was a perfect backdrop to our listening of the Big Broadcast, which we both enjoy very much together each Sunday night with all of you. Thank you for including both of us in this thread (we hope you are still enjoying the smoking wood Keith--logitech--cut for you).

Jeff Chandler (Michael Shayne) has been heard often on the Big Broadcast as Mr. Boynton, the science teacher in “Our Miss Brooks” but he never played Johnny Dollar nor appear as a guest actor in any YTJD episode. Chandler later became a lead actor in many motion pictures.
