Message Text The College of Charleston's Communications Museum at 58 George Street in Charleston, South Carolina is presenting QP later this month:

RICKLEY'S BELIEVE-IT-OR-NOT RADIO SHOW
Hosted by Rick Zender
Wednesday Evening Old Time Radio Series

March 23
QUIET, PLEASE (1947-1949)
Time/Location: 7:00 p.m., Communications Museum, 58 George Street
Considered by many to be the most creative series in the history of radio, Quiet Please was written and directed by Wyllis Cooper, the original creator of Lights Out. Ernest Chappell, the series' featured actor, set the dark and mysterious mood through a dramatic stream-of-consciousness narrative, as he took the listener into a world convincingly like our own ... but not quite real. Shhhhh ... Better slip in silently so Rickley can treat you to audio presentations of "The Man Who Knew Everything," "Calling All Souls," and "Meet John Smith, John."
