This is another example of the mystery/suspense series of the 1940s. It ran
for a year with 52 episodes. It never hard a national sponsor but was syndi-
cated for its entire run. And none of the remaining programs give credit to
the cast, writers, producers, directors or anyone connected with the show.
The Haunting Hour is a very mysterious show. First, let's
note that the Haunting Half-Hour would actually be correct, but an odd title for
the show. So Haunting Hour it was.
The second mystery is that,
like so many of the great radio talents who labored in the background, unseen
and unheralded, this show made for transcription has receded into the ethers of
old time radio without a history. That is, the Magister Ludi of Old Time Radio
himself, John Dunning, succinctly states in "On the Air, The Encyclopedia of Old
Time Radio," "There were no credits, so casts and production crews are unknown."
