Retro Radio Memories: The Black Museum – “A Jar Of Acid” (1952)

Orson Welles - The Black Museum
Welcome back to another episode of Retro Radio Memories! For your listening enjoyment today we have selected episode Episode 20 from the Back Museum Radio show, entitled “A Jar of Acid”, with the legendary Orson Welles as your host and narrator.

The Black Museum was produced in 1951 by Harry Alan Towers (The Lives of Harry Lime, Sherlock Holmes) and based on real-life cases from the files of Scotland Yard’s ‘Black Museum’, the scripts for the radio programs were written by Ira Marion with musical duties handled by Sidney Torch.

So leave the chores for later, dim the lights and pull up a seat and join us for Retro Radio Memories as we enter the Black Museum!
