With Jim’s background as a podcaster and paranormal guru he is perfect to handle our topic, which is Being Stalked by a Demon or Ghost. Also, we have a great old time radio tale to share and that was not enough Jason and I take on your emails and tweets. So, if you have the courage press that play button and board the express train that tries to chill you a little and thrill you a little.

Our story comes from Lights Out, which is an extremely popular old-time radio program. It was an early example of a network series devoted mostly to horror and the supernatural, predating Suspense and Inner Sanctum. Versions of Lights Out aired on different networks, at various times, from January 1934 to the summer of 1947 and the series eventually made the transition to television. The Lights Out episode is "Knock at the Door," and tells the story of a woman who is haunted by the ghost of her mother-in-law. It was written by Arch Obler and first aired September 2, 1942.
