About this Old Time Radio Show

Text on OTRCAT.com ©2001-2016 OTRCAT INC All Rights Reserved. Reproduction is prohibited.

On the RoadThe culture of the open road and exploration of our great country is the epitome of the American Dream. Since the opening of continental Route 66, road trips have been a stable of American relocation and vacation travel.  The open road opens new possibilities of new places and the unknown—the perfect setting for dramatic radio shows but even some family-friendly tales.  This is a fascinating collection of the stories of life and death on American Highways. 

  • Route 66A husband throws his wife off a cliff after she threatens to report a hit and run accident in Suspense "Death of Highway 99".
  • Dinah Shore sings her hit song "Hit the Road to Dreamland" adds a musical break to the collection.
  • Lux Radio Theater presents "No Highway in the Sky" starring Jimmy Stewart and Marlene Dietrich reprising their roles from the popular film.
  • Suspense "Hitchhiker" with Orson Welles is the perfect traveling thriller show—a classic of the radio medium.
  • Big Town's "Death Rides the Highway" warns against becoming an overconfident driver, talkative driver, impatient maniac causing the tragedies on the road.  A truck driver avoids a grey convertible with a fuming mother only to crash head on into a school bus of orphans returning from a happy day in the country.

Grab your Samsonite suitcase and polka-dotted scarf and hop into your convertible, because there are hours of pavement and radio shows ahead.  These shows won’t help fill your gas tank on vacation but they will fill your mind with laughs and thrills.
