One of the earliest horror series ever aired, Witch’s Tale was the most-loved radio program by New York kids during its time, which is from 1931 to 1938. The show’s host was known as “Old Nancy, the witch of Salem,” (played by Adelaide Fitz-Allen) along with his cat called Satan. It featured stories such as The Flying Dutchman, and the very popular Frankenstein.
Due to its popularity, The Witch’s Tale was attempted to be adapted into a television series. However, despite the efforts to do so, it did not happen. Nevertheless, this series is one of the most remembered.
