THE CATWIFE & OTHER CREEPY STORIES
by Arch Oboler
Bischoff Park,52 Nerang Street, Nerang
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.
