Quiet Please - Old Time Radio (OTR) (mp3 CD)

Regular price £4.99 Sale

Complete 91 Episodes

Quiet, Please! was an old-time radio fantasy and horror program created by Wyllis Cooper, also known for creating Lights Out. Ernest Chappell was the show's announcer and lead actor. Quiet, Please! was first broadcast by on June 8, 1947 by the Mutual Broadcasting System, and its last episode ran on June 25, 1949, by ABC. A total of 106 shows were broadcast, with only a very few of them repeats.

Earning relatively little notice during its initial run, Quiet, Please! has since been praised as one of the finest efforts of the golden age of American radio drama. Professor Richard J. Hand of the University of Glamorgan (author of probably the most detailed critical analysis of the series) argues that with Quiet, Please, Cooper and Chappell "created works of astonishing originality"; he further describes the program as an "extraordinary body of work", which established Cooper "as one of the greatest authors of horror radio." Similarly, radio historian Ron Lackmann declares that the episodes "were exceptionally well written and outstandingly acted", while John Dunning describes the show as "a potent series bristling with rich imagination."

PLEASE NOTE: This is the only surviving set of Quiet Please radio broadcasts in existence. Although there are plenty of listenable episodes in the collection, quite a few of them are of poor quality with static and muffled sound throughout. Unfortunately you will not find a higher quality version elsewhere, we have searched extensively. 

Format: mp3 CD.

Contained in: Transparent Plastic Wallet.
