The episodes are lovingly curated, set up well (listen to the intros for context!), and then left alone, commercials and all. I wouldn’t change a thing.

My favorite aspect of OTR is imagining my favorite movie stars on the radio, in roles they played on screen or roles I *wish* they’d played. I was listening to Suspense eps on free apps one after the other. So the way this podcast is set up with 2 shows featuring one star is perfect for me! Dates...Read full review »

The host is insufferable, I can’t remember hearing someone love their own voice so much without any merit. Dude just drones on and on.

I generally really enjoy the actual shows and I'm grateful to the podcast maker for creating this podcast, but due to the above, I find that I fast forward until the show begins. Perhaps this could be resolved by speaking after the show, and also dropping the music, please. Thanks for good...Read full review »

I am hooked on OTR and Suspense is one of my favorite shows. I appreciate the narrator’s intros to each show. Suspense featured many big stars in its day and it is great to be able to hear them all.

Amazing host and highly curated shows with excellent audio fidelity. Not your run of the mill OTR podcast.
Seaquest8 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/25/21
Best sound quality of any old time radio program Podcasts I’ve listened to and I love the introduction of the radio actors and their mini biographies. Outstanding.

Orson Welles is one of my favourite actors , he was amazing as the host of The Black Museum and in his reprisal of Harry Lime in The Lives Of Harry Lime , which is the radio sequel to one of his most famous movies : The Third Man.

...Gold mine of bedtime stories. These are Hollywood’s brightest stars of their time; with superb acting, direction and production. OTR, and this podcast in particular, has helped me for years get through intractable insomnia. 🌛

Polished presentation and excellent sound quality. I started listening to Suspense through an app a while back, couldn’t get enough, but so many episodes were damaged and staticky. Everything on this podcast is so clear, and it’s fun to get a little background on the stars.

My fave of all the old time radio podcasts

Marvelous podcast!
BGMays via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/19
While the star of the show is always the original broadcast, too many of these podcasts ruin that with the “additional narrative.” This is the exception. The narrative is well written and well spoken and thus adds to the program instead of detracting from it. Congrats! Well deserving of five stars!
Gary zenker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/15/18
I’ve always loved old time radio, and my favorite program has always been suspense; but I only ever had limited access to certain episodes and only ever was able to hear two stars, Vincent Price and Bette Davis. I hoarded their episodes for years, destroyed the cds that I saved them on listening...Read full review »

Are you kidding me?! Absolute joy you’ve returned! This podcast transports you back in time with the stars and revels in it - thank you! P.s. please post all Vincent Price ever 😬

Your podcast is fantastic. There are plenty of places to hear these old radio shows but the way you curate them and introduce them makes listening spectacular. I sure hope you come back to do more of them and that everything is OK with you. Thanks, Steve

I’m blind I love this podcast
zombie creep 61 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/18
Great theme to shows and a lot of information about the stars & episodes. The sound quality of these episodes is superior to 99% of all other OTR podcasts! His other podcast named “Down These Mean Streets” is an OTR detective series and delivers the same high quality! There is no comparison,...Read full review »

"Stars on Suspense" is one of the best podcasts available on iTunes. Each week the host offers two episodes (sometimes more) of the Old Time Radio program "Suspense." "Suspense" often had major Hollywood stars as cast members. The radio plays are of a consistent high...Read full review »

As a huge fan of the Golden Era of Radio, I was excited to come across this podcast! It’s always such a unique treat to hear my favorite stars in a new light!
celsaandchips via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/04/17
Great Old Time Radio programs. Always interesting to hear what was happening in the world in the Golden Days of Radio.
LadyAmara3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/09/17
One of the most robust and curated Old Time Radio programs currently operating. Each episode delivers two classic episodes, usually pivoted around a specific radio star -- Jack Benny, Danny Kaye, or Anne Baxter, for instance. Beyond the outstanding performances, the host has an encylopedic...Read full review »

Love these old radio plays paired up with appearances by great hollywood stars. Just leaves me craving a glass of Roma Wine and the need to change my spark plugs
mattboywonder via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/15/17
SUSPENSE! Seriously though, this show was recommended on the Attaboy Clarence podcast, another which focuses on classic radio and movies. Suspense is the most famous and exciting of the classic radio serials, and I love the focus on the old movie stars here.
awesomeness0232 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/17
The best of the best. Fans of horror and suspense podcasts this one is for you. Clean clear audio. Truly the cream of the crop. The acting is top notch, not just from the Star but from equally stellar supporting casts. Every episode delivers two great stories, you're unlikely to have...Read full review »
