Saturday Night Radio Drama - Sound Alone Is Scarier - Mike Walker - The Edison Cylinders

Supernatural drama: When Rhona Forrester restores some Victorian recordings, as she works, a frightening message emerges. There is an interesting mention of de Martinville

I'm not a big fan of supernatural drama or sci-fi, which puts me a kind of a disadvantage because I'd guess by a large number, most of contemporary audio-drama fall into those categories.   This one got as close to scaring me as any and more than any movie I've seen as an adult.  It didn't scare me as much as the tentacled head in Invaders From Mars did when I was a kid. 

Here's another one, maybe more scary, also based on recovered recordings and supernatural horror.

Julian Simpson - Bad Memories 

Supernatural drama - In 2004, a successful architect and his family mysteriously disappear from their home. Six years later five bodies are found in the cellar of their house. They are identified as Jonathan and Imogen Blake and their son, Matthew; Philip Gibson, who was on the missing person's register and a woman, identity unknown. Forensics determine that not only were they murdered, but the time of death was 1926. Can audio files found with the bodies solve the mystery?
