The Hermit's Cave

(Old Radio Show)

About the Show

The Hermit's Cave was a weekly radio show sponsored by Olga Coal. The series was first aired in 1935 and ran for about 10 years. The Hermit presented each show from his cave, to the sound of wolves and the wind howling to each other.

The only sound inside the cave was the Hermit, cackling, as he introduced the story.

Several actors played the Hermit, but John Dehner is probably the person most famous for putting the cackle in the hermit.
