Arch Oboler

Devil and Mr O was created by Arch Oboler as part of the famous Lights Out series of radio programs. His first version of the radio macabre portrayals were produced during the early 1940's. The Lights Out program was already a hit across the nation as the first horror series that made people wince, scream and "re-think" their dinners. When Oboler took over the creation of the series, he wasted no time in presenting his talent for the weird and fantastic to the American audience. If the dialog and storyline did not draw you to the edge of your seat, the sound effects were sure to place you there. Arch Oboler is Mr. O.,your host.

Arch ObolerAlley Cat
"It is later than you think" opened the program. Mr. O brought this program, as well as the others, to the radio audience. Alley Cat starts with Linda hanging out with her friends at her home, when her husband Johnny shows up and kicks out her friends from their home. The couple turns from intense anger to amorous affection...or so it seems.

Where are You
Mr O begins this horrisode about how he came to write this particular play. He describes having met a young couple in love and their inspiring him to pen this play. The story begins with Michael and Eve going up the elevator wanting to discuss nothing but their love...and the trip going up. The world is going crazy with WWII happening, but all they want to do is head up to the top of the building...the Empire State Building... and see the wonders of the world from a higher perspective. Their love is all they focus on as the world goes on...their excitement is based on their new life together. This is their honeymoon and...well why don't you find out what happens next.

These programs are but a couple of the many that Arch Oboler presented to the airwaves. Each one a different nuance and way of drawing the listener in and keeping him there. Mayhem, murder and much more were the illustrations brought out with each episode that demanded you full frightened attention.
