Lights Out debuted January 1, 1934 over Chicago’s WENR and moved onto the NBC airwaves beginning April 17, 1935. Radio’s premier horror series was created by writer/ director Wyllis Cooper, who later scripted Boris Karloff’s 1939 horror classic Son of Frankenstein. Cooper was succeeded by Arch Oboler, one of radio’s greatest dramatic talents. Oboler had scripted the Mae West’s infamous "Garden of Eden" sketch and brought a new level of psychological horror to radio in scripts like "Cat Wife," "Sub-Basement" and "Chicken Heart." Lights Out ended its original NBC run August 16, 1939 but was revived by Oboler as a 1942-43 CBS series. Lights Out was resurrected by NBC as 1945 and 1946 summer series. The legendary series returned for a final summer season in 1947, with Boris Karloff starring in scripts by series creator Wyllis Cooper.
