3 Responses to Dann, Sam


Sam Dann was one of the workhorse writers for Mystery Theater. His writing was consistently fantastic. A pleasure to listen to.

Sam, your tantilizing stories kept me up late nights,on the edge of my seat, even though I had school in the morning. Thank you for opening my imagination thru radio. You and the actors here on the RMT are truley talented and yet grossly unappreciated. If I could, I would give you an Oscar! Thanks a million!

Did Sam Dann ever have a day off, get tired, or simply take a break? He seemed to write as if it were as simple as boiling an egg. I am very, very impressed.
