Need recommendations for any great episodes from this or any radio show. Preferably horror, but really any genre as long as it's great.

I used to listen to this show, and I've kind of fallen out of it. I still hail it as the greatest radio horror show of all time, but I just need some reminders of great episodes, and recommendations on episodes with only script (no original audio).

If any of you also know any other great episodes from neighboring shows such as Lights Out, Suspense, Inner Sanctum, etc. or from any other show, could you please recommend them to me.

My top 5 Quiet Please episodes (at the moment... there's probably another 10 I could as easily have chosen): Northern Lights, The Man Who Knew Everything, The Gothic Tale, Inquest, The Little Morning

I can't think of any episodes of other series that capture much of what I love about Quiet Please.... perhaps because I don't think of Quiet Please as a horror series. There were some scary episodes, but it's a multi-genre series and it's the storytelling style that binds it all togeather. I haven't found that style anywhere else.

The Quiet Please episode I really like and is the most famous is THE THING ON THE FOUBLE BOARD. In addition to the other recommendations from the previous reply, I also like THE OLDEST MAN IN THE WORLD, TANGLEFOOT, WHENCE YOU CAME, BEEZER'S CELLAR and CALLING ALL SOULS. There are so many other good episodes, but those are the ones off the top of my head.

For SUSPENSE, the classics are SORRY WRONG NUMBER, THE HITCHHIKER and HOUSE IN CYPRESS CANYON. I also like MOMENT OF DARKNESS and FUGUE IN C MINOR.

Lights Out is one of my favorites. I really like POLGERGEIST, LITTLE OLD LADY, KILL, VALSE TRISTE, SUPER FEATURE and THE SPIDER.

Inner Sanctum is OK, but I don't like it as much as the other 3. I would recommend THE VENGEFUL CORPSE, THE WAILING WALL, DEATH ACROSS THE BOARD, POTRAIT OF DEATH and MUSICAL SCORE.

I like the Witch's Tale, but some think it's dated, but some stories really creeped me out. RATS IN A TRAP, THE DEVIL'S DOCTOR, FOUR FINGERS AND A THUMB and THE MANNEQUIN are some of my favorites.

Hall of Fantasy can be good. Check out HE WHO FOLLOWS ME, THE SHADOW PEOPLE and THE CRAWLING THING.

From a horror standpoint, "One Hundred Thousand Diameters" might be the best of the ones currently available as "script only." The episode exists, but isn't circulating.

Some late Suspense episodes that play like QP stories are "The Black Door" (Nov 19 1961), "The Second Door" (May 06 1962), and "You Died Last Night" (Apr 01 1962).

Lights Out: The Flame, Knock at the Door
