Blue Hours Reviving Horror Radio Anthology Suspense to Air on SiriusXM This FallThis latest bit of news should be music to the ears of all our readers who enjoy a bit of horror radio now and again. Blue Hours Productions is reviving the classic radio anthology series Suspense, and it will begin airing on SiriusXM Satellite Radio this fall.

The original Suspense, which ran from 1942-1962, was known as “radio’s outstanding theater of thrills” and featured a virtual ‘who’s who’ of Hollywood stars, including horror legends Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Vincent Price, and Peter Lorre. Though many of its episodes were murder mysteries, the original Suspense made many forays into pure horror, such as its adaptations of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Dunwich Horror and Curt Siodmak’s Donovan’s Brain.

The new Suspense, however, will go in a somewhat different direction, notes Blue Hours’ John C. Alsedek. “While we’ll still be doing mystery stories, we’re also going for some bone-chilling horror… real pulp-era stuff!” Among the classic stories being adapted for the initial batch of episodes are: ‘Cool Air’ (by H.P. Lovecraft), ‘The Fire of Asshurbanipal’ (by Robert E. Howard), ‘The Graveyard Rats’ (by Henry Kuttner), ‘The Return of the Sorcerer’ (by Clark Ashton Smith), and ‘The Horla’ (by Guy de Maupassant). There’s also the original ‘Essence,’ starring Skyler Caleb, Elizabeth Gracen, Dana Perry-Hayes, Steve Moulton, and Adrienne Wilkinson.

Alsedek and his partner Perry-Hayes will be drawing heavily on their highly experienced core group of voice talent, including Wilkinson (‘Xena’, ‘The Clone Wars’), Gracen (‘Highlander’), Daamen Krall (‘The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari’), and Tucker Smallwood (‘Star Trek: Enterprise’). “We’re very fortunate to have such marvelous actors and actresses to work with, along with some great guest stars; they allow us to really bring these amazing tales to life!”

Suspense will begin airing on SiriusXM Channel 80 this fall. However, complete episodes will also be available for MP3 download on the Suspense website, effective immediately.
