Name this TV show or TV Movie...

A while ago I remember seeing a short TV story (could have been a tv movie). Basic synopsis is that somewhere in a small USA desert town people start to go slightly mad one by one. Apparently the madness is spread by word of mouth it ends when one of the afflicted starts to broadcast from a radio station.

Ta in advance!

I think it is an episode from The Outer Limits (1990s). I'll check and tell you the exact episode.

Got it, I think. It is actually an episode from the 1980s version of Twilight Zone. This particular episode was called The Need to Know and was in Season 1 (Episode 51).
