MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
The Mutual Broadcasting System began broadcasting a radio version of Hopalong Cassidy, with Andy Clyde as the sidekick, in January 1950; at the end of September, the show moved to CBS Radio, where it ran into 1952. Also in 1950, Hopalong Cassidy was featured on the first lunch box to bear an image, causing sales for Aladdin Industries to jump from 50,000 units sold the previous year to 600,000 units sold. Hopalong Cassidy also appeared on the cover of national magazines, such as Look, Life and Time.
Like so many other successful comic-book characters of the day, Hopalong made the natural jump to radio which also starred Boyd and Andy Clyde as his trusty sidekick, California. The Mutual Radio Network scheduled the show for a nationwide audience beginning January 1, 1950 and was sponsored by General Foods. Hopalong then moved to CBS in September of that year. The show became a smash hit, creating 104 episodes and running for two years. But producers at NBC had already created Hopalong one year earlier as the first network western television series in the summer of 1949, and Boyd who starred in both radio and television versions of the shows grew weary of the hectic production schedules. When NBC paid him a quarter-million dollars for the TV rights to his films, Boyd ultimately found television to be the more profitable medium and quit the radio show in 1952.
