Suspense "The House In Cypress Canyon"

One of my favorite episodes of the long-running radio show Suspense, "The House In Cypress Canyon" does two things very well: first, it does a good job of setting up several weird scenarios, and second, it doesn't attempt to explain squat. As corny as it may sound if you listen to it at work under fluorescent lighting, the episode still has an element of genuine dread which manifests when it's played loudly in the dark of night. The story was first broadcast December 5, 1945.
