Actor and director Robert Montgomery was part of the family on Suspense. During the show's era as a sixty-minute series, the star of Here Comes Mr. Jordan and Night Must Fall, he was the master of ceremonies for "radio's outstanding theater of thrills." But he also starred in installments, including the two shows we'll hear today. Montgomery is the narrator and titular character in "The Lodger" (originally aired on CBS on December 14, 1944). Then we'll hear him in "The Thing in the Window" (originally aired on CBS on January 27, 1949).
