The original Chicken Heart

I found my version of The Chicken Heart, and here it is:

but I also found a website that also has it.


Although for some reason the davidszondy version does not have the heartbeats as part of the program. I don't understand why. The actors are the same, their vocal inflections are all the same as far as I can tell, which leads me to believe it's the same broadcast, but the ever-present beating of the Heart that gives the show its eerieness... isn't there!

This radio page is full of treasures (all except WoW broadcast in the 1950s), which you can listen to for free:
