Up Next!
CRIME DOESN’T PAY
May 24, 2021. 7:30 PM

The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society presents classic plays from the Golden Age of Radio, performed in the style of a vintage radio broadcast, including commercials, music, and live sound effects. This month, the Society brings you two twisty tales of crime and punishment!

We open with “A Shroud for Sarah” from one of the golden age of radio’s most prestigious programs Suspense. An unlikely criminal mastermind plays friends and foes against each other in an ambitious game of murder and political intrigue. First broadcast October 15th, 1945.

We close with “A Guy Like Me,” a new tale by Tim Uren from the MORLS original series Dead Men’s Tales. A man hoping to abandon his life of crime pays a visit to the home of a fortune teller and his escape artist wife. But all is not as it seems when uncertain memories and an inescapable future blur together.
