In response to a biographical questionnaire he filled out to assist publicity for his 1935 film Murder by Television, Bela Lugosi said that he didn’t like radio programmes, and at one time it was thought that he had seldom been called upon to perform in the medium. According to one researcher, however, he may have actually made over 200 broadcasts, and it is likely that he made many undocumented appearances on local radio stations as he travelled around the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom in touring stage productions. Of his known radio appearances, precious few appear to have survived. On this page we will attempt to collect together all existing information on his appearances on the radio and all of his known surviving radio broadcasts.
