Inner Sanctum Mysteries ran from 1941 to 1952, and in those 11 years over 500 shows were broadcast.
Many old-time listeners refer to it by its signature sound effect, The Creaking Door. It was hosted by a ghoulish character who enjoyed bad puns.
The show was similar to television’s Twilight Zone, with stories that mixed humor with horror.
From September 25, 1945, here’s Inner Sanctum, and The Lonely Sleep.
