SYNOPSIS: Footloose is the story of Ren McCormack, a teenage boy from Chicago. He and his mother move to the small town of Bomont after his father abandons them. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Bomont. The Reverend has convinced the town to outlaw dancing, which Ren finds unbelievable. With the help of the Ariel (the Reverend’s daughter) and Willard (a country hick who becomes his best friend), Ren convinces the Reverend to let the teenagers dance, and in the process helps the town to heal from a tragedy that affected them all.

SYNOPSIS: One of the best of the early radio shows devoted to giving listeners the creeps was Lights Out and this
truly bizarre tale, by Arch Oboler, is a story of a husband whose marriage is so catastrophic, he somehow transforms her into a yowling, scratching feline. This story was voted as "the best" by listeners in 1938, and an appropriate choice for Halloween.
