"Contrary to popular belief, and to the conceptions of writers of horror stories, strange and mysterious events do not require strange and mysterious settings. One of the most remarkable occurrences in all the annals of the incredible took place on the teaming streets of New York City. It was there that the girl named Dorothy Arnold was last seen... in human form."
Short tales of monsters, scary footprints, disappearing monks,
voices from beyond the grave, and women in lakes may be incredible,
but they are TRUE!!! Listen to these exciting tales and repeat
them to dazzle your friends!
Incredible but True was a short show that dramatized unexplainable mysteries from all over the world and all time periods. Enhanced with dramatic organ music, the show was narrated by Ken Nordine.
Though some of the stories tried a little hard to add a supernatural spin, they are a fun representation of classic old-time radio. With this show, the writers sometimes took great liberties with the stories, even changing the ending to get a more dramatic outcome. But who cares, it is good OTR fun!
The show was on the Mutual Network from 1950 to 1951 and was out in two different formats--a 15 minute format and a three minute format. It was produced by Unusual Features Syndicate and appeared at different times during the week with no set schedule since it was syndicated.
