This is “The Hitchhiker” from a 1942 broadcast of the radio show Suspense.  You may have seen a version of this story on The Twilight Zone.  But we like this version better.  And it stars Orson Welles!

And we feel it’s very much in keeping with the style and tone of the novel Ghost Radio.

So dim the lights, hit the play button and prepare for half an hour of spine-tingling horror.

Wikipedia has a fascinating write-up on Lucille Fletcher the author of this classic radio drama.  You can read it here.

In the dusty catacombs of the Ghost Radio archives, we have many shows like this.  So if there’s a scary radio drama you’d like to hear, request it in the comments section, and we’ll try to put it on the site.

Keep checking back at the site throughout the night.  Still more Halloween goodies to come.
