Arch Oboler’s Plays was a radio anthology series written, produced and directed by Arch Oboler. Minus a sponsor,
it ran for one year, airing Saturday evenings on NBC from March 25, 1939 to March 23, 1940 and revived five years
later on Mutual for a sustaining summer run from April 5, 1945 to October 11, 1945.
Lewis Titterton, an executive at NBC, originated the program’s title. Titterton was described as a man who “thought
the future of radio depended on the vision of the writer.”
With the launching of Arch Oboler’s Plays, Oboler became “the first writer accorded name-in-the-title status.”
Christopher H. Sterling, in his book Biographical Dictionary of Radio, wrote, “Oboler, writing about ‘the terrors and
monsters within each of us,’ used his stream-of-consciousness technique to shattering effect and made radio a viable new art form.
