Eegah!! sent over a soundclip from this episode for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there by the old haunted elevator, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's a smell of... I HEARD YOU CALLING ME!

Host Roald Dahl starts the show with a cigarette and a little info about the weird story you are about to behold. Eegah!! included an L&M ad in the soundclip for all you smokers out there!

The tale's about a woman who's ready to run off with a married man, she relaxes in a hotel room while her rich lover takes care of things on his end. Constance Ford plays gold digger, Freda Mansfield, Constance ended her career as Ada Hobson on the popular soap opera, ANOTHER WORLD, until 1990.

Then, Freda starts receiving threatening phone calls from a mysterious woman about the affair! The old biddy hotel phone operator informs Freda that she received no calls from any woman, since the call would have gone through her!

Freda's confused, so, time for some nicotine!!

The threatening calls keep coming and Freda is starting to come unglued, the caller gives her some instructions so she writes them down.

Then, the mysterious woman, a ghost named Rose Thorn, shows up and the elevator stops on Freda's floor...

Freda's heart gives out and the affair is null and void! Tune in tomorrow to see what Eegah!! has cooked up for us.
