We start with an episode from the Columbia Workshop. !st aired 1938, "The Giant Stair" explores the disappearance of a mountain man during a storm. who or what is responsible- the weather, someone familiar or a stranger? Our 2nd selection is from the suspense series Lights Out. Originally broadcast 1937, "Death Pit" plunges a man happy with his life into an abyss of uncertainty. How did he get there? And what's with the snake? Well, here to answer all speculation are regular guests Sherry Brown, Ben Robinson III and me, your host, Andy Pettit.
