"THE VENGEFUL CORSPE"
This excellent fright tale was produced by Inner Sanctum during the 1940-50's
A women comes back from beyond the grave to seek revenge after unjustly burned for a witch, hunting the descendants of those that wronged her...
"The Thing on the Fourble Board"
Probably the most highly regarded episode of Quiet, Please! is "The Thing on the Fourble Board" (August 9, 1948), about an oil-field worker who encounters a mysterious subterranean being hiding on the derrick's catwalk.
The story effectivness has led some fans to label the episode one of the best radio horror programs ever broadcast. Richard J. Hand of the University of Glamorgan notes that "The Thing on the Fourble Board" is not only cited as the finest example of radio horror, but occasionally cited as one of best examples of radio drama as a whole. Especially effective was Cecil Roy's vocal performance as the creature. Though she performs only very briefly, Roy's vocal (barely recognizable as human) was cited by Dunning as still startling and chill-inducing even after decades.
