The first SNT I heard was just after the war when I was about 10. I was allowed to sit up and listen on our old wireless set. My parents and I sat in the dark and it was a very creepy play about a murderer who kept saying 'Catch me if you can' I just remember being petrified and was too frightened to go to sleep. I didnt hear the next one until 1950 when I was 12. My parents allowed me to listen to Appointment with Fear with Valentine Dyall but I insisted on having the light on! My parents didnt have a TV until 1970 so my childhood and teen years were always concentrated on the radio which I continue to listen to.

Hello Elizabeth, welcome to the forum.
I must admit to being a bit jealous of some of your radio memories. I always liken the radio but didnít get into radio drama until the mid 1970ís Ė long after my parents had bought a colour TV !!!.
I always complain about the difference in drama output now, compared to say 30 years ago, but for you the difference must be even more noticeable.
