The Blue Beetle
Featuring Frank Lovejoy
24 Complete stories, noise-reduced and with enhanced fidelity; Dolby digital sound -- 9 Hours of content
Sweeping down upon the underworld to smash gangland comes a friend of the unfortunate, enemy of criminals, the mysterious all-powerful character who is a problem to the police, a crusader for law! In reality Dan Garrett, a rookie patrolman, loved by everyone but suspected by none of being . . . the Blue Beetle. As the Blue Beetle, he hides behind a strange mask and a suit of impenetrable blue chain armor, flexible as silk but stronger than steel!
Each episode is a complete story in itself; the originally 2-part stories have been conveniently presented as single half-hour format shows. BTW, we did the restoration work on these files which have since been copied by others; this disk is the original, not a copy.

World War II On the Air
A great historical collection of over 100 broadcasts from WWII, 1938-1946, including both original recordings of news reports and also audio dramas, including Words at War, presented in order of date broadcast.
VERY useful if you are studying the history of the war. If you were to listen to this straight through you'd get a full picture of both what was happening in the news and the sentiment of the American people as expressed through drama.
Also includes some mockeries of American songs used as propaganda by the Germans.
THE WORLD ADVENTURERS' CLUB and the MOON OVER AFRICA SERIAL
17 Hours of wild and thoroughly politically incorrect 1930s tales featuring 45 ripping stories, one complete 26 episode serial (the captivating MOON OVER AFRICA), and 34 rousing songs. The World Adventurers Club stories are purportedly told by intrepid explorer types who visit lost lands to which they are usually not invited, in search of treasure, romance or dramatic adventure stories they can take back to their exclusive club and tell the other fellows about. They encounter lost tribes and escape sacrifice, fall in love with exotic women, and usually generally make a mess of things but escape a major catastrophe with their lives and broken hearts just in time. Short dramatized tales are intermixed with exotic songs performed by "the quartet."
Fully indexed on the back cover and in multiple illustrated menus (containing photos of the locations described in the stories) so any individual story or song can be located and played very easily.
