The great William Conrad lends his booming voice to two outstanding "tales well calculated to keep you in Suspense." One of the all-time legends of the medium, Conrad was best known as US Marshal Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke, and he made these visits to Suspense during his run in one of radio's best westerns. We'll hear him in a terrifying one-man show in "The Waxwork" (originally aired on CBS on May 1, 1956) and in an amazing radio tale of high adventure in "Leningen vs. the Ants" (originally aired on CBS August 25, 1957).
