Radio’s high-tech adventure thrills!

This eleven-hour, unabridged audiobook contains hitherto lost stories distilled from 1940s radio scripts. The volume recovers and summarizes previously unavailable serial adventures from 1945 to 1949 that were originally heard by some twenty million listeners—thirteen percent of the US population. Since the documentation summarized here has since been lost, this book is a one-of-a-kind, the sole source of this radio history for all time.

Sixteen adventures, each originally averaging thirteen weeks to broadcast, show an exciting perspective on military aviation concepts and tales following World War II. According to author Leonard Zane, “of the Ovaltine-sponsored 1940s Captain Midnight shows, only about three dozen audio episodes exist, and this book recovers the missing stories from over eight hundred postwar episodes.”
