During the memorable years when radio was America’s favorite home entertainment medium, the airwaves were filled with all sorts of programming. Daytime dramas (often called soap operas) enthralled at-home moms. Prime time programming offered something for everyone: mystery and comedy, variety shows, game and panel programs, even adaptations of great works of theatre and literature. Among the many programs aimed at kids were dozens that featured characters drawn from comic books and comic strips. Even a few that appealed to adults were adapted for radio. From Archie Andrews to Tom Mix, all the radio characters and programs that drew life from a comic book or comic strip are collected here in a skillfully researched guide.
