THE PRICE OF FEAR - Fish - Retro Radio Memories Podcast

The Professor

Recommended Posts




The Retro Radio Memories Podcast is a weekly retro podcast that takes a look back at radio shows of yesteryear and is hosted by The Retroist's Vic Sage and The Projectionist! This week's podcast is about an episode of the 1970s BBC Radio series The Price of Fear, entitled "Fish", written by Rene Basilico.


The Price of Fear was a British horror/mystery radio series starring host Vincent Price. While primarily a horror/mystery series, The Price of Fear featured some episodes in other genres, such as science fiction, supernatural, fantasy, and human drama. This show stands out in Price's radio career as some of the episodes are based on fictional adventures of Vincent Price himself, in which Price plays himself, while others have him merely introducing the macabre tale of the week.


Twenty-two episodes were produced. Writing credits for the series include William Ingram, Stanley Ellin, Richard Davis, R. Chetwynd-Hayes, A. M. Burrage, Elizabeth Morgan, Rene Basilico, Roald Dahl and Price himself. Fifteen of these episodes were rebroadcast by BBC Radio 7 in the spring of 2010. 


If you enjoy classic radio and television shows, you may enjoy the Retro Radio Memories Podcast. I hope you'll hop on over to The Retroist give it a listen.
