Welcome back friends to another installment of Retro Radio Memories! This week we have chosen a short tale that is sure to thrill you and it has the added bonus of being narrated by none other than Boris Karloff! The segment is from the Tales of the Frightened series and is entitled “Just Inside the Cemetery”.

The story that Karloff narrates was written by Michael Avallone who was pretty well known for his mystery and secret agent stories but he also had a hand in writing novel tie-in’s for TV and film such as The Man From U.N.C.L.E., The Partridge Family, Mannix, Hawaii Five-O, Beneath the Planet of the Apes, and Friday the 13 part III.

Our story today involves what occurs to Arthur Wyndgate of Morrisville when he decides to look “Just Inside the Cemetery”.
