Dr. Ken Anderson, Professor of paranormal psychology, is experimenting with astral projection --- projecting his astral self to other places. He soon loses control of when he projects and what his astral self does.

A widow, living with her daughter and son-in-law, is contacted by old flame and rival for her youthful affections. He too is widowed and asks her to set aside the past and accept a visit from him as he passes through town on business. He is now very wealthy now, apparently achieving fabulous success on Wall Street and seems to want to rekindle the affair they had in the past. The son-in-law, an assistant district attorney, is suspicious and trips him up in a lie when he probes him about his stock dealings. Wanting to protect his mother-in-law from a potential shyster , he probes further and does not like what he finds.

1975. Freshman yr in high school. I always kept the radio on my nightstand next to my bed. At night I loved listening to the radio. Back in those days, WLAP A.M. played top 40 music, not this dreary talk radio format that it has now. CBSRMT always came on at 11:p.m.

This was an okay listen, but not one of my favorites. I didn't like this episode as it says that once your soul or spirit leaves your body that it is different than when it is in your body. That implies that the flesh stops the spirit from doing things it shouldn't do, which doesn't make sense to me. It was sort of interesting, but not the best.

The ending of this one left a lot to be desired. Was very anti-climactic and a total letdown.
