Book Description

From Archie Andrews to Tom Mix, all radio characters and programs that ever stemmed from a comic book or comic strip in radios golden age are collected here, for the first time, in an easy-to-read, A through Z book!

From Rons introduction:

""The wonderful thing about Radio as it used to be in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, is that whoever or whatever you were hearing over the airwaves was your very own visual creation. It was your imagination that supplied the images of what the people, places and situations you heard looked like. The ""pretty"" girl was your version of what ""pretty"" was? and the ""handsome"" hero was your visualization of what constituted ""handsome."" During the memorable years when Radio was America?s favorite home entertainment medium, the airwaves were permeated with all sorts of programming. There were the daytime dramas of domestic stress, or soap operas as they were called because they were usually sponsored by soap detergent companies, that at-home moms and night-working dads could tune in to hear and sometimes their sick-at-home--with-a-cold kids also listened to ""the soaps."" There were the five-day-a-week children?s adventure serials that were heard in the late afternoon when youngsters came home from school. There were prime-time mystery programs, and comedy and variety shows, game and panel programs, and even adaptations of great works of the theater and literature, as well as radio versions of well known films, for the mind?s eye to envision.""
