And for those of us who go back just a bit further, don't forget "X Minus 1" , "Tales of Tomorrow", "Space Patrol", and "Tom Corbett, Space Cadet" on radio ("Tom Corbett" made it onto TV too, I think).

@Chumly,
When did that one run.

I remember as a kid watching a show which I believe was called "Dial Double Zero," and I believe it was connected to Bradbury.

Scared the ever loving hell out of me!

Some Ghost in The Machine drives a guy nuts calling him night and day, and at the end the entity is calling The White House.

Almost as scary as the scene in The Atomic Kid when Micky Rooney realizes he's in deep sh*t when he sees the dept store dummies in all the houses and stores of a town he's stumbled upon.

I had no idea of what was going on. I just knew that he saw creepy dummies and started screaming. I joined him and ran from the room.

Ever since, dummies, and puppets and dolls give me the creeps.

@MontereyJack,
itunes has them in their podcast section

you can get them at Internet Archive

the internet archive site has quite a lot of old time radio shows, there are three pages of x minus 1 and one page of dimension x, plus comedies, dramas and suspense

Thanks, 62.

Call me slow, but I just now discovered that the SciFi Channel site online streams episodes of Battlestar Galactica, season 4.5 now in progress and apparently selected previous years' episodes. And other series. Which, fortunately for me at least, means I don't have to wait til they come out on DVD to see them, since I don't have SciFi on cable. If you're in similar straits, check them out.
