“I…am the Whistler...and I know many things...for I walk by night. I know many strange tales hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows.”
Radio Spirits brings you classic tales of mystery, crime and suspense featuring everyday individuals caught in a web of their own making, and tripped up by a twist of fate in the end. And heard throughout each radio play, as the events become a tangled web of crime, is that shadowy voice-of-fate, your host… The Whistler!
Dripping with sarcasm, The Whistler follows the murderers’ slow descent into destruction while cautioning listeners about the futility of the criminal act they just heard.
