Macabre was produced by the Far East Network (FEN) of the Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS) with it's first broadcast on November 13, 1961. The series ran for nine weeks, including a special Christmas Day broadcast, "Of Frankincense and Myrrh," and ended on January 8, 1962 with "Edge of Evil."
The Christmas broadcast has never turned up so there are only 8 of the original 9 episodes in circulation. Although it had a short run it is highly regarded by those who enjoy the horror genre on radio. Click here for a list of episodes on this old time radio CD Set.
