In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Aug 22, 2011

Did you ever hear Bill Cosby's routine about being terrified by a horror show on the radio when he was a kid, about a giant chicken heart? 

Well, that show was a real episode of Lights Out, a program that offered horror and the supernatural every Wednesday night. 

Lights Out was created by Wyliss Cooper (top photo) in 1934, and taken over by Arch Obeler (bottom photo) in 1936. 

This episode, Cat Wife, is one of the most popular shows of the series, and it was repeated several times.  This version stars Boris Karloff, and it originally aired on April 6, 1938.
