Radio Spirits » Blog Archive » Happy Birthday, William Spier!
The man who brought listeners “radio’s outstanding theatre of thrills” (Suspense!) and “the greatest private detective of them all” (The Adventures of Sam Spade) was born in New York City on this date in 1906. The history behind one of the medium’s most creative producers is indeed an interesting one—involving both a love of music and marriages to two individuals as equally entwined in show business as himself. Upon his graduation from Evander Childs High School, the young Spier worked a series of odd jobs before landing a position at Musical America at the age of nineteen—a magazine then edited by the one and only Deems Taylor.

William Spier | | Radio Detective Story Hour
This week, one of most thrilling episodes, for me, from the series Suspense. The best radio drama is when the acting is top-notch, the sound effects are well-tuned to enhance the dialogue and the music is designed to increase tension and a sense of thrill.
