Our OTR Story – Dead Man’s Vengeance
Our main story for this week comes from the old time radio seriesThe Inner Sanctum. This has horror and mystery all rolled into one. It stars the narrator,Raymond, having his very own bout with strangeness. The quality on this one was a little beat-up, so I did some restoration work on it and it is my hope that you enjoy it. The tale is called, Dead Man’s Vengeance and first aired on October 10, 1944.
