Old-Time Radio Theme Month, Day 19: "Kaleidoscope"

Today, we make a sudden jolt from the supernatural terrors of Earth and ascend to the horrors of space. The recently-deceased Ray Bradbury was adept at writing horror stories, the like of which I've presented already, but his tales of space could be just as terrifying. I give you "Kaleidoscope," as presented on Suspense July 12, 1955.

The last time I listened to this episode, I had been taking a nap while old-time radio streamed over my computer. As "Kaleidoscope" began its drama of men cast adrift in space after losing their ship, my semi-conscious mind was a little confused by the audio and began to write me into what I was hearing. It's a testament to how intense this program is.
