|The ESCAPE radio program first aired over CBS
radio on July 7, 1947. The anthology series provided
listeners with tales of high-adventure. ESCAPE
lacked a regular sponsor. Thus, the program's time
slot changed frequently.
Well known radio actors, such as William Conrad
and Paul Frees, narrated many of ESCAPE'S
introductions. In addition, several of ESCAPE
episodes were adaptations from stories written by
famous authors, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and
Daphne du Maurier.
The ESCAPE episode many consider the most
synonymous with the radio program was entitled,
Three Skeleton Key. This story involved three men
trapped in a lighthouse, at night. Vincent Price
played the lead role. This story first aired on
November 15, 1949.
In 1950, Richfield Oil and Ford Motor Company
began sponsoring ESCAPE. Also, that year, there
was a brief TV version of ESCAPE on CBS.
On September 25, 1954, the last episode of ESCAPE
aired on radio. ESCAPE was a well done radio
production, lasting seven years. Fortunately, over
220 episodes of ESCAPE survive for your listening
pleasure! Enjoy, ESCAPE !
