I'm looking for copies of radio show scripts from the 30's. I teach a gifted English class, and we're going to create a radio show. I'd like to model a few for them. Any sites you could recommend?

Radio allowed us to use our imagination. When the show began it let you know it was going to be good. Remember, "What evil lurks in the heart of men? The Shadow knows!" Televison is certainly great but it does not allow for us to use our imagination.

I recently chatted with a fellow on irc who said he was the narrator of the LAST episode of The Shadow on radio, in the mid 60s I believe, in downstate New York. Anyone remember that?

Palema ;)

I love listening to the shadow at night (on a local radio station). Can any one tell me who played the part of Lamont Cranston. On one episode that I heard it was Orsen Wells , but it is some one else on all the others I have heard. So Who is the secound one, Who replaced who. Thanx

Joani: I don't know the order, but Bill Johnstone, Bret Morrison, and John Archer have all played the voice of The Shadow/Lamont Cranston on the radio show.

Welles played the Shadow during the shows first season, then was replaced by Bill Johnston, who played the part for several years. Brett Morrison replaced him. John Archer replaced Morrison for one year, then Morrison returned to the role until the show was cancelled in the mid-1950s.

If anyone can tell me of a radio station in the Niagara Falls area I would greatly appreciate it. I like the old time stuff and if ther is a internet station all the better. If you have one please write to Thanks Kirk in Kanada

Anyone out there ever thought of creating anew "The Shadow" on radio...similar to what the comics did about a couple decades ago? I think I may have some ideas that might strike gold, as it were...I want to do on radio the equivalent of the special-effects folk at the movies & (to a lesser extent) on TV. Please respond...
