A note concerning sound quality. The sound quality for the shows in this collection is very good to good. It is difficult to find perfect recordings from the golden age of radio due to the equipment used for recording and the fact that many of the recordings were made 60, 70 or even 80 years ago.

HERE'S SOME BACKGROUND INFORMATION FOR "THE SHADOW":

"The Shadow" was long believed to have debuted on radio as a program in its own right September 26, 1937, on the Mutual Broadcasting System. But the character actually premiered in September 1931, on CBS, as part of the hour-long The Blue Coal Radio Revue (named for the show's sponsor), featuring Frank Readick — "The Shadow" announcer of Detective Stories — as "The Shadow," and playing Sundays at 5:30 p.m. Eastern standard time. The stories also appeared on Thursday nights for a month, when "Love Story Drama" (another Street and Smith creation) took the Thursday night slot — but also featured occasional portrayals of The Shadow.

Blue Coal had a long relationship with "The Shadow," moving the radio series to NBC in October 1932 with Readick playing the character on Wednesday nights now. Two years later, NBC ran the stories on Mondays and Wednesdays, both at 6:30 p.m., with LaCurto taking occasional turns as the title character. Three years later came the beginning of the half-hour drama radio buffs have remembered so well, with the then-unknown Orson Welles as "The Shadow," the show moving to Mutual, and the famous catch phrase now in full play.

Welles did not speak that signature line — Readick did, using a water glass next to his mouth for the echo effect. But Welles did make a credible Shadow, two years before his notoriety as the mastermind of Mercury Theatre on the Air's production of "War of the Worlds."

After Welles left the role for a career in the cinema, "The Shadow" was portrayed by such actors as Bill Johnstone, Bret Morrison (the longest tenure, with ten years in two separate runs), John Archer, and Steve Courtleigh as "Lamont Cranston/The Shadow." The radio show also introduced female characters into "The Shadow's" realm, most notably "Margot Lane" (played by Agnes Moorehead among others) as Cranston's love interest and crime-solving partner (the character was eventually integrated into Gibson's pulp novels). In the 1994 movie, Margot's name was spelled "Margo." However, early scripts of the radio show clearly show that the character's name was spelled "Margot".

Once "The Shadow" joined Mutual as a half-hour series, it did not leave Sunday evenings radio until December 26, 1954. It outlasted the magazine that gave birth to it: The Shadow Magazine ended with the summer 1949 issue, although Gibson wrote three new "official" stories between 1963 and 1980. Gibson started off a short series of updated Shadow novels for Belmont with "Return of the Shadow" under his own name. Others: "The Shadow Strikes," "Beware Shadow, Cry Shadow," "The Shadow's Revenge," "Mark of The Shadow," "Shadow Go Mad," "Night of The Shadow, Destination: Moon." "The Shadow" had mental powers in these books, to cloud men's minds so he effectively became invisible, to conquer pain, etc.
