"Out of the past, phantoms of a world gone by speak again the immortal tale…"
Over the centuries, people have gathered in a circle to tell and re-tell their legends. Now, listeners can gather around the radio to hear stories of strange occurrences written by Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, Charles Dickens, Guy de Maupassant, Emily Bronte, and Alexandre Dumas.
Follow the sound of crashing waves, howling winds and tolling bells to tales of treason and vengeance, beasts and plague, haunted houses and curses, mystery and murder. These vintage chillers are brought to life by William Johnstone, Frank Lovejoy, Mercedes McCambridge, Eleanor Audley, Lon Clark, and more.
