* NoFourthWall: Some of the less serious episodes played merry hell with the fourth wall, sometimes implying that the characters knew they were fictional or could ''see'' the radio audience, or having Chappell's character speak directly to a specific person who his character knew would be listening to ''Quiet Please''.

Running from 1947 to 1949, ''Quiet, Please'' was written and directed by Wyllis Cooper (who had previously worked on another horror program, ''LightsOut'' -- best known today from a Creator/BillCosby routine where he reminisces about the infamous "Chicken Heart" episode -- in the 1930s), and starred Ernest Chappell. Nearly every episode took the form of Chappell's character narrating in the first person, recounting a story of something strange and horrifying that had happened to him (sometimes leading up to his [[PosthumousNarration demise]]). These tales would range from ghost stories to things that were... [[CosmicHorrorStory weirder]].
