ESCAPE!
ESCAPE was a radio anthology series, which was
first broadcast on July 7, 1947. It aired on CBS and
was produced by Norman MacDonnell.

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 program had many time slot changes, but never
lost its quality. ESCAPE entertained radio audiences
with tales of high adventure every week.


On September 25, 1954, the last episode of ESCAPE
aired on radio. However, 220 episodes of ESCAPE
still survive. So, are you "Tired of the every day
grind? Want to get away from it all?" Well, Old Time
Radio Magic offers you,....ESCAPE!
