Murder at Midnight

MURDER AT MIDNIGHT Murder at Midnight was an old-time radio show featuring macabre tales of suspense, often with a supernatural twist. It was produced in New York and was first heard in syndication between September 16, 1946 and September 8, 1947 on WJZ (now WABC). The show's writers included Robert Newman, Joseph Ruscoll, Max Erlich and William Norwood, and it was directed by Anton M. Leder. The host was Raymond Morgan, who delivered the memorable lines of introduction over Charles Paul's effective organ theme: "Midnight, the witching hour when the night is darkest, our fears the strongest, and our strength at its lowest ebb. Midnight, when the graves gape open and death strikes!" A total of 51 episodes were produced, though the last two were never aired. Ten shows were syndicated and rerun on Mutual in 1950. Though very entertaining at its best, the series' failure can perhaps be attributed to some wildly implausible stories. Information for this audio brief came from Note - this series is being revised. The files have been pulled and will be reposted when the revision is complete.  30 November, 2018 OTRR Certification Information: Series Name: Murder at Midnight Certification Status: OTRR Certified Accurate Certification Date: December 17, 2010 Certification Version: Version 1 Number of CDs: 2 From the Old Time Radio Researchers Group.
