I know this is a CBS Radio Mystery Theater group and I am as big a fan as anyone when it comes to Hi Browns "Legendary" show that ran for 8 years when Radio theater was suppose to be dead and TV was actually king; there was some great television shows during that time that did not even last 8 years but there is a great Audio Drama box set Tales From the Crypt. I am not sure if any of you have listened to it but it is great with a capital G. There is one episode "Tight Grip" that is one of the best radio theaters I have ever heard; if there had been a Himan Brown Award (and there should be), Tight Grip would surely have won it. Just wanted to share. There are if I am correct 6 episodes with one called Zombie which is an hour long the others are all half an hour; high quality with well known actors such as John Ritter and Luke Perry. Don't be put off if you don't like Luke Perry or if you don't like Tales from the Crypt this is on a different level.


Bob Kaliban portrays two people brilliantly in this episode.


Really? What a cheapskate that old Hi Brown was.
