Old Time Radio Show
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 writing team of Burtt and Moore had created Captain Midnight, and in 1942 got together with Albert Aley to do a radio adventure based on the popular All-American comics star, Hop Harrigan. Harrigan is "America's Ace of the Airwaves," and he gets a lot of flying time fighting evil, and as the war developed, Hop in his radio adventures was in the thick of the real battles that were raging overseas. His flying buddy Tank Tinker is along for the ride and Hop actually is allowed a girlfriend, Gail Nolan, played by Mitzi Gould. Chester Stratton plays Hop, and Tank's role was first Ken Lynch, then Jackson Beck. Beck was the announcer on Superman after '43 and Tom Corbett, Space Cadet, played The Cisco Kid from '42-'45, Inspector Logan on Casey, Crime Photographer, Hood on The Casebook of Gregory Hood in '49, plus The Mysterious Traveler, Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar and many more. He's also beloved as the classic voice of Bluto on the Thimble Theatre Popeye cartoons.
Somewhat more adult than the earlier flying adventures, Hop actually gets out of the plane and does some WWII spy work behind the enemy lines in Germany, and later in the series went to the Pacific Theatre to Okinawa for the battle of Okinawa. During the war years, the announcer's war appeals stand in stark contrast to the comicbook-inspired adventures on the show.
After the war, Hop gets involved in episodic mysteries that remind one in plot of I Love a Mystery, as well as an adventure in Hollywood. Grape Nuts flakes was the major sponsor in the mid 40's, with Glenn Riggs announcing throughout the run.
