In honor of Ray Bradbury's recent birthday, the Aug 28th broadcast of my radio show "It's a Mystery" will feature the Molle Mystery Theater production of "Killer, Come Back to Me." This production is an adaptation of a 1944 short story by Bradbury in which a man (Richard Widmark) strangely resembles a dead gangster.
"It's a Mystery" is Webcast on Mondays at 11AM ET at http://www.fcac.org/webr
WONDERFUL! Will get this info over to Ray.
The Molle Mystery Theater production of Bradbury's "Killer, Come Back to Me" is now posted at:
Bumping this up as I was just checking to see if this was available online.
Since the new Ray Bradbury crime story collection KILLER, COME BACK TO ME is due to be released by Hard Case Crime in August of this year, I thought folks might enjoy listening to the radio version of the title story to that collection. I am therefore bumping up this thread from several years ago. (Check the various older threads...you never know what you might come across!)
The short story "Killer, Come Back to Me" originally appeared in the July, 1944 issue of the crime pulp magazine DETECTIVE TALES. The story was subsequently adapted for radio, and was presented on the Molle' Mystery Theater on May 17, 1946. The radio version starred a very young Richard Widmark, who would shortly thereafter achieve film stardom (and an Academy Award nomination) for his chilling portrayal of the giggling, psychopathic hoodlum Tommy Udo in the classic 1947 film noir, KISS OF DEATH. You can click on the link below to listen the 1946 radio version of "Killer, Come Back to Me". Enjoy!
The link below will take you the cover of the April, 1952 issue of the mystery pulp magazine, DETECTIVE TALES. It contains the Ray Bradbury story, "Murder Is My Business!" Never heard of that Bradbury story? Well, it is that 1952 issue's re-titling and re-printing of the Ray Bradbury story, "Killer, Come Back to Me!", which originally appeared in the July, 1944 issue of the same magazine!
And for those who might like to take a look at the cover of the rare July, 1944 issue of DETECTIVE TALES, in which "Killer, Come Back to Me!" made its original appearance, just click on the link below.
