Back before the days of television, home theaters, and *gasp* the Internet... Electronic home entertainment came primarily from the radio. Nowadays we mainly associate radio with pop music and talk show personalities, but back in the 1940's narrative radio dramas were very popular. These shows featured voice actors, music, and sound effects to get their listener's imaginations to fill in imagery that radio could not provide.

Here's a good one for a cold winter night... Dim the lights and enjoy this classic episode of The Sealed Book called "The Ghost Makers".
