"We Offer You...Escape!" makes a suitable counterpoint to those tales "Well-Calculated to Keep You in...Suspense!" -- an anthology of high adventure to contrast with Suspense's low cunning. Some stories could adapt to either program (and several were) , but Escape emphasized the thrills to Suspense's chills. Three Skeleton Key may be Escape's best-remembered episode, and creating the sound of hundreds of rats is still a challenge for any audio effects artist today.

Paul Frees and William Conrad were two of the brilliant late-era radio talents who added a dose of testosterone to the exiting adventures for listeners who "tired of the everyday grind."
