On this episode of Ron's Amazing Stories we have one from the OTR series CBS Radio Mystery Theater. It involves a man whose brand of justice takes him down a dark path. Will you recognize the story? Could this be the forerunner to a famous Jody Foster film? What can I say about CBS radio mystery theater that we haven’t already said in the past shows? I found it on the air sometime 1978 and was an avid listener until the day it closed its doors for the last time in 1982. In 1974 long-time radio producer Himan Brown convinced CBS to green-light a new anthology of Radio Dramas and CBS Radio Mystery Theater was born. This was a major win for Himan because the Radio Drama had been declared "dead" some twelve years before. Although the radio drama did not make a come back CBSRMT was a hit and managed a run of eight seasons (1974-1982). The story we have for this episode is called simply, “Them!” and first aired on February 27, 1975. Here is the LINK to the CBSRMT website that Ron spoke of during the podcast.
