A Captain Underhill Thriller

Captain Underhill and Doctor Scofield, vacationing up from Cape Cod, encounter more adventure than they sought.
First, they offer a ride to a beautiful park ranger. Then, they’re kidnapped by an escaped convict. To top it all off, they are all swept into a harrowing merry-go-round on a busted-loose ferry platform, which is being sucked into the spiral maw of one of Nature’s most awesome displays, a monstrous tidal whirlpool fourteen hundred feet across. Musically rich and with awesome sound effects and a marvelous cast, The Whirlpool features John Stead, o.b.e. as the Announcer, regulars David Ellsworth, Wally O’Hara, Stephen Russell and introducing Jade Rutanen.
This story is based on a real natural phenomenon. Just off the easternmost point of land of the United States is situated a rare natural phenomenon; the Old Sow, one of five large size whirlpools in the world, and the largest ‘true’ one, meaning one formed from multiple colliding currents. Passamaquoddy Bay is the breeding ground for the Old Sow and her piglets; Eastport, Maine is where you’ll find it.

43 minutes
A Captain Underhill mystery

When little Anna Gale Storm is abducted by a stranger in a white van, the police– and the media — spring into action. Bulletins are issued. The police swarm. News and police helicopters hover near the twin bridges. Anna Gale’s mother, Betsy Storm, is hysterical but must be questioned. The police are desperate, frustrated by the fact that the only eyewitness is a frightened, easily confused, 5 year old named Jody Higgins.

A parent’s worst nightmare, this story is based in part on a true Cape Cod incident. The locale is Point Isabella, Cotuit, off Old Post Road, where, legend has it, Bluebeard the Pirate buried his girlfriend, Hannah Screechum, after he caught her snooping. Now little Anna Gale Storm, by virtue of her recent kidnapping from the same spot, is in line to take her place alongside Hannah’s. Unless Captain Underhill can get to her in time…

Some People Are Missing On Canal Str...

Some People Are Missing On Canal Street

Copyright 1991
48 minutes
Radio Thriller

It begins as static…then, you hear a voice, desperate, frightened, coming from a shack in the Cape Cod dunes, broadcasting his story to anyone who might be listening. He tells an unbelievable tale of missing persons and an unseen enemy that may already have conquered us.

Is he insane? Is he deluded? And most terrifying of all, is he telling the truth?

Some People Are Missing on Canal Street was written as an experiment to try to duplicate the same shock in the listener that was generated by The Mercury Theater’s legendary production of The War of the Worlds. In that production, near the end of the program, a lone survivor hides out in a shack, trying to contact someone, anyone. “2X2L…2X2L….isn’t there anyone on the air?!”

Excellent for Halloween.
