One of the scariest moments of my life occurred when I was listening to an old radio broadcast of "The Shadow". I was recording a bunch of "Shadow" shows as a gift for my dad, who was a big fan of the series. Most were pleasantly pulpy and fairly suspenseful, but one, titled "The Island of the Ancient Death" was much more intense. I was sitting in the studio, recording away, when suddenly, the actress portraying Margo Lane let loose a piercing, ear-splitting scream. I jumped bolt upright in my seat, suddenly aware of how late it was and how dark the radio station was and how empty it was and how alone I was...

Don't try to tell me that old radio dramas aren't scary.
