Publisher's Summary

Doses of concentrated thrills and pure, raw excitement are delivered directly on the heels of the most explosive musical theme in radio - a crashing rendition of Mussorgsky's "Night On Bald Mountain". Produced and directed by William N. Robson, Norman MacDonnell, and Antony Ellis - and featuring stories by Rudyard Kipling, Ambrose Bierce, and more - Escape is capable of chilling spines as expertly as it accelerates heartbeats.
Through nail-biting espionage thrillers and desperate tales of survival, through stories of science fiction and the supernatural, through clashes on the battlefield and clashes against the terrifying power of nature (and all her creatures), you are thrust into extraordinary circumstances from which there is no…Escape!
Vincent Price, Jack Webb, William Conrad, Frank Lovejoy, Joan Banks, John Dehner, and many of the greatest radio voices are featured in 20 digitally restored and remastered episodes of this pulse-pounding program.
