Believe it or not, but some of the radio play series on cassette were so popular that they got their own soundtrack tape and vinyl release!




You should listen to a few of the other tracks, too. Might give you an idea why the music was such an essnetial part of the appeal.

If you want to listen to a bit of German horror radio plays, check out this one:

"Die Insel der Zombies"...one of my faves from that period:



Here is a link to the YOUTUBE page, which offers you the chance to get a few more audio samples from the particularly influential "Gruselserie":

AND if those radio plays should really catch your interest, why not order a few of them on original CDs from "amazon.d"?

    You should try archive.org for copyright free old horror radio plays from hollywoods golden age of monster movies. Lots of Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi stuff

    Thanks for the feedback, guys!

    Believe me, I still have the whole library of sounds from those vinyl/tape horror radio plays echoing in the back of my mind.
