Old-Time Radio Theme Month, Day 26: "My Son John"

Resuming a look at the great monsters of horror stories, we come to vampires as Dracula himself is referenced in this episode of Quiet Please. "My Son John" (broadcast November 28, 1948) studies a lonely man who wishes to bring his dead son back to life. By turning to the occult, his wish is granted, but he soon has reason to regret it; his son isn't the same person he remembered, especially as he's now a vampire. It's a macabre story which doesn't play by the vampire "rules" you might be familiar with; it's even a little funny.
