Want to catch up on your classic horror stories, but don’t have enough time? My husband stumbled upon this 52 hour spotify playlist of scary stories. Most of these are pulled from the days of radio broadcasts. The list includes your classic Edgar Allan Poe and Hitchcock stories, and a 1944 broadcast of Frankenstein. There are stories and poems, lasting a single minute or twenty-five.

I’ve always had a romantic fascination with Frankenstein, and started pulling out Edgar Allan Poe volumes in my youngest library days. I love the rattling of chains and the howl or the wind and creaking of the stairs–the sounds that let you know something’s coming for you, and you don’t quite know what.

What are your favorite old scary stories?
