An on-line guide to Radio's Horror Hosts from OTR to present.

Two other ways to locate your favorite horror host include:

a. finding the series that they narrated, or

b. using the host's character name (or persona)

Here's the list of hosts in alphabetical order using their real (actual) last names. Remember, the real names of some hosts are unidentified, so this list is incomplete.
