Gilligan, played by Bob Denver, and “Wrongway Feldman,” played by Hans Conried.

Maybe you remember him as “Wrongway Feldman” on reruns of “Gilligan’s Island,” but Hans Conried has a long broadcasting history, beginning as a radio actor in the 1930s.

His voice turns up on two episodes of 97.9 WHAV FM’s “Suspense,” this week. On Wednesday, at 10 p.m., he appears in “The Diary of Captain Scott,” and Friday in “The Groom of the Ladder.” Friday’s story tells the story of Jack Ketch, an infamous executioner employed by English King Charles II during the 1680s.
