Suspense - A Friend To Alexander, starring Geraldine Fitzgerald, Richard Whorf (June 16, 1944)

The most prestigious show on American Radio premiered on June 17, 1942, although an on air audition, part of the series Forecast, took place on July 22, 1940. Suspense was subtitled "radio's outstanding theater of thrills" and focused on suspense thriller-type scripts, usually featuring leading Hollywood actors of the era. Approximately 945 episodes were broadcast. Suspense went through several major phases, characterized by different hosts, sponsors, and directors & producers.

Formula plot devices were followed for all but a handful of episodes: the protagonist was usually a normal person suddenly dropped into a threatening or bizarre situation; solutions were "withheld until the last possible second"; and evildoers were usually punished in the end. In its early years, the program made only occasional forays into science fiction and fantasy. Notable exceptions include adaptations of Curt Siodmak's Donovan's Brain and H. P. Lovecraft's "The Dunwich Horror", but by the late 1950s, such material was regularly featured.
