lights out title

Lights Out was an extremely popular old-time radio program devoted mostly to
horror and the supernatural. The first series of shows ran on a local New York
NBC affiliate, WENR, at midnight on Wednesday, starting in January of 1934. It
was soon picked up by the NBC radio network, after huge demand. and was
broadcast nationally, usually late at night and always on Wednesdays until
the summer of 1947. The series eventually made the transition to TV. The
show was to radio, like what The Twilight Zone was to television.
