This episode was written and produced for March 19, 2007. Twenty years ago from that day, radio storytelling great Arch Oboler died. I talk about Oboler and his work -- including a pair of clips from his most famous program, Lights Out -- and talk about the differences in audiences -- and producers -- between the "golden age of radio" and today.
The picture of Arch Oboler to the right was painted by portrait artist Michael Bennett, and is used here with his permission.
Theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
Those interested in Arch Oboler may want to take a look at my book, WORDS AT WAR (Scarecrow Press, 2002) which based in part on my interview of Oboler\\\\\\\'s widow discussed Oboler\\\\\\\'s Norman Corwin\\\\\\\'s, Arthur Miller\\\\\\\'s etc roles as radio writers in boosting morale within the US during World War II see my website: www dot HowardBlue dot com Howard Blue
