The Weird Circle was a 30-minute mystery horror radio series that aired on NBC for four years, from 1943 to 1947. It featured stories derived from classic horror, ghost tales, and supernatural stories, written by popular authors such as Honore de Balzac, Charles Dickens, Emily Bronte, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edgar Allan Poe, and many more. Each story was presented in the format of introducing the narrator first and then proceeding to the plot.
Although mystery and horror series were popular during the time this show aired, Weird Circle did not actually gain as much attention as its contemporaries due to a lot of factors. It was regarded just as your average horror series.
