 Satanic Story Time presents episode 37 – “Marionettes, Inc.“, from Dimension X.

The Devil’s Tuning Fork: A series of events has led me to the coincidental choosing
of these particular tracks. I have selected “Symphony of Destruction” from
Megadeth’s fifth album, Countdown to Extinction, which was released on July 6, 1992 through Capitol Records. Also
on the track listing for this episode is AC/DC’s “TNT” from their second album,
TNT, with the late Bon Scott which was
released only in Australia on December 1, 1975. Last but not least on the
lineup for “The Devil’s Tuning Fork” for episode 37 is King Diamond’s “The
Puppet Master” from his 11th solo album, The Puppet Master, which was released on
October 21, 2003.

The Devil’s Workshop:  Keeping with the theme of this episode, I have
selected an old time horror radio show for you entitled, “Marionettes, Inc.

The radio adaptation of Ray
’s “Marionettes, Inc.” was originally presented by
Dimension X. Dimension X was an NBC radio program broadcast on an unsponsored,
sustaining basis from April 8, 1950, to September 29, 1951. The first 13
episodes were broadcast live, and the remainder were pre-recorded. Fred Wiehe
and Edward King were the directors. Norman Rose was heard as both announcer and
narrator. “Marionettes, Inc.” was first heard on Dimension X and NBC radio on
August 30, 1951 and was adapted for radio by George Lefferts. It served as
Dimension X’ 46th episode.

The story itself was written by Ray
and first appeared in Startling
in March of 1949. It was later published in a collection of
his short stories, The Illustrated Man
