Suspense





 1946 | CBS Radio

(Honorable Mention) Has the war made Americans blood thirsty for crime and detection? How otherwise can we explain the ever-increasing number of mystery dramas which flood the air? The committee believes that there are too many whodunits for the good of radio; it also believes that in this overworked and melodramatic field there is one program which, for its casting, its music and its suspense, is head and shoulders above the competition. A special citation therefore to Suspense of CBS and to William Spere, its producer and director.
