Chatting With Sherri welcomes back John Alsedek and Dana Perry-Haye of Suspense!
The original SUSPENSE Featured a virtual who’s-who of Hollywood royalty, SUSPENSE ran for an unprecedented 20 years and 900-plus episodes before finally going off the air on September 30th, 1962- a date that is widely considered the end of radio’s ‘Golden Age’. Fifty years later, John C. Alsedek and Dana Perry-Hayes revived the series, with all-new stories and a style reminiscent of the original without being a copy. It has also been nominated three times for the Peabody Awards, as well as for the Parsec Awards, the Young Artists Awards, and the Young Entertainer Awards.
They recently recorded their 129th episode, which is just about halfway through our proposed 261-episode run. They have had a bunch of new guest stars, including Keston John, Tara Erickson, and Hana Wu. Our Soundcloud/iTunes podcast is creeping up on 2 million listeners. Currently averaging about 215k listeners a month. SUSPENSE is up for 'Outstanding Podcast' in the 2018 Voice Arts Awards- we're one of the four finalists.
*Next two episodes are 'A Question of Fear' (starring Mel Novak & Vida Ghaffari), and 'Duet' (starring Fredericka Meek & Amy Pemberton)
