I have had the distinct pleasure of listening to Edgar Alan Poe adaptations on CBS mystery theater radio. Those adaptations are better than the original readings. EG Marshall was a great host and the music was perfect.
I remember sitting as a young kid in the Catskill Mountains listening on the tube radio after a campfire with my cousins. The tales would be spooky and sometimes we could hear rebroacasts from distant stations. There were many excellent actors including Fred Gwynne whose voice I remembered from those shows before I saw the Munsters on reruns.
Perhaps I will do the Mighty Bearkerkin Community Theatre production of The Oblong Box staring Beakerkin and the Duck along with some surprising guest cameos. The spoof will be a tribute to the classic with the expected humor and satire.
