Harum Scarum Theater is a grab bag of mystery, featuring episodes from several thrilling short-run series from the 1940s-1950s. Each weekly presentation is chosen by the luck of the draw from these five collections:

Dark Fantasy was an American radio supernatural thriller anthology series. It had a short run of 31 episodes, debuting on November 14, 1941, and ending on June 19, 1942. Its writer was Scott Bishop, also known for his work on The Mysterious Traveler. More…
