Merry Christmas from Radio Archives!
The Old Timer. Myrt the Operator. The Great Gildersleeve. Beulah. Mayor La Trivia. These names all share one common thread. They were first heard on one of the greatest radio comedies ever to play on the airwaves. And a season of that show, restored to the highest quality possible, is collected in The Fibber McGee and Molly Show, The 1945/1946 Season.
Sponsored by Johnson's Wax, Fibber McGee and Molly moved from the Blue Network to NBC in March, 1938. Already well established before the move, most experts agree that Fibber McGee and Molly hit its stride not long after the network change.
Even though it wasn't yet the legend it would become, the building blocks were in place in the late 1930s. Fibber was a teller of tales, blustery and boastful, until reproached by the long suffering, tolerant Molly. The door of their home at 79 Wistful Vista must have been revolving as an assortment of characters flitted in and out of it every week. Established Chicago actors like Isabel Randolph, Harold Peary, Bill Thompson, and even announcer Harlow Wilcox peopled The McGee's fictional address with over the top, hilarious performances. Peary proved so memorable and effective that he went on to another show considered classic by many, The Great Gildersleeve.
The Fibber McGee and Molly Show, The 1945/1946 Season collects a full season of shows, restored to Sparkling audio quality. Listen as the characters everyone loves come to life in this collection. Fibber McGee and Mollyexpert Karl Pearson is the Series Contributor for this set. Enjoy 18 hours, 36 shows of pure fun. $53.98 Audio CDs / $26.99 Download.
The classic radio program featuring Johnny Dollar, America's Action Packed Insurance Investigator, remains one of the most popular shows among OTR fans and collectors. And by far, the most popular actor to play the role of two fisted, witty Dollar was Bob Bailey. In Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar, Volume 4, you'll discover Bailey and the show at their equal best. This 10 hour collection features ten five-part stories first aired in 1956. Bailey as Dollar painstakingly pursues each case to its conclusion and each script brims with tension and authenticity. Combine that with Bailey's charm and delivery and these episodes represent the best of Old Time Radio. Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar with Bob Bailey.

Read by Nick Santa Maria and Robin Riker
During his ferocious first year fighting crime, The Spider faced the most amazing array of supercriminals ever spawned. The Black Death. The Red Mask. The Tarantula. The Fly. Few were as memorable as the 20th Century corsair called Captain Kidd. She—yes, she!—embarked on a campaign of cruelty unmatched in pulp history.
It began with the torture-killing of a innocent young boy—a loyal member of the Spider Club. The weapon employed was a knife with eerie electrical properties. Discovering the hapless body, Richard Wentworth vowed to avenge this insult to The Spider's power.
But Captain Kidd struck first! When a train roars into Grand Central Station, out of control and crashing to a brutal halt, authorities discover that everyone aboard, from the engineer and crew to the passengers, are cold corpses—electrified by a weird new weapon called the Green Fire!
Out of this rolling charnel house come the first clues to the Pirates—a roving band of modern-day buccaneers out to pillage greater New York. At their head, the deadly woman who has taken the feared name of Captain Kidd.
Once again, has selected one of the most electrifying Spider novels ever written for an equally-electrifying audiobook. Nick Santa Maria again takes on the dual role of Richard Wentworth, aka TheSpider, Master of Men, for this powerful new entry in the Will Murray Pulp Classics series. Robin Riker enchants as Nita van Sloan and gives a powerful performance as the wiley Captain Kidd. Producer Roger Rittner brings his superb directorial expertise to the proceedings, which are enhanced by sound effects and a full musical score. So far, our audience tells us that each Spider audiobook has outdone the one before. The Corpse Cargo is no exception.

Terror Tales Arthur Leo Zagat, Book 2
In 1934 a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names — the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines — weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. Terror Talesmagazine was one of the most popular. It came from Popular Publications, whose publisher Harry Steeger was inspired by the Grand Guignol theater of Paris. This breed of pulp story survived less than ten years, but in that time, they became infamous, even to this day. This ebook contains a collection of stories from the pages of Terror Tales magazine, all written by Arthur Leo Zagat, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
"With the secret of the plague of Suicide Tomb, I shall control all men and their destinies. I have arranged my bargain with death and the devil; now men shall do my bidding." Thus spoke Wu Fang, secure in his Dragon's Lair, surrounded by his ministry of murder!... Not far away, innocent of the Yellow Fiend's purpose, was the only man who dare combat him — Val Kildare, watching and waiting; ready for the Crime Beast to show his hand!
Inspired by the Asian menace of Fu Manchu, Harry Steeger, publisher of Popular Publications, decided to publish a villain-centered pulp magazine series. And so, The Mysterious Wu Fang was born.  The series was written by Robert J. Hogan, who also wrote for G-8 and his Battle Aces and The Secret Six.  But after seven stories, the series was ended.  An eighth story "The Case of the Living Poison" was planned, but never was printed.
Captain Future… the Ace of Space! Born and raised on the moon, Curt Newton survived the murder of his scientist parents to become the protector of the galaxy known as Captain Future. With his Futuremen, Grag the giant robot, Otho, the shape-shifting android and Simon Wright, the Living Brain, he patrols the solar system in the fastest space ship ever constructed, the Comet, pursuing human monsters and alien threats to Earth and her neighbor planets. This is one of the legendary "final seven" Captain Future tales. After a run of twenty pulp issues, the quarterly magazine closed. But that was not the end of Captain Future. He returned in a series of short stories published in Startling Stories magazine, beginning with the January 1950 issue. Edmond Hamilton, creator of Captain Future and author of the majority of the full-length novels, returned to pen seven more Captain Future stories. His style had matured, as had his original audience, and these final seven Captain Future stories are considered to be some of his best. Captain Future left the pages of Startling Stories with the May 1951 issue, but editors left open the possibility that Captain Future might return some day. True fans are still waiting. Until then, Captain Future returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today's readers in electronic format.

The Doc Savage exploit that went untold for 74 years—Death’s Dark Domain!
In the aftermath of the evil John Sunlight’s pillaging of the secret Fortress of Solitude, a dreadful super-weapon has fallen the hands of a Balkan dictator intent upon seizing control of the vampire-haunted zone of desolation known as Ultra-Stygia. War is imminent. Monsters are loose in the disputed region. A strange darkness falls over the sinister landscape. Only Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze, understands the terrible threat to humanity. And only he can prevent the terror from spreading…
There are unknown Things prowling the darkest patch of land on the planet. Haunted by creatures that might have emerged from the Hell’s lowest regions, ancient Ultra-Stygia has turned into a cauldron of conflict between rival countries. Monster bats careen through the night sky. Invisible Cyclopes patrol the scorched battleground. And a power beyond understanding robs men of their vision.
Can the 20th century’s premier scientist and superman untangle this Gordian knot of carnage before neighboring nations are drawn into an apocalyptic new world war? Or will the Man of Bronze succumb to an unstoppable power he himself has unleashed upon mankind?

By Dr. Art Sippo
Doc Savage is overpowered and kidnapped by a gang working for a thug named Santini. A mysterious old man named Dan Thunden has come to Miami looking for someone named Kel Avery. Santini is trying to keep Thunden from contacting Doc Savage, but as usual, Doc turns tables on him and escapes.
An investigation reveals that Dan Thunden claims to have been a sailor on a ship that was lost in the Caribbean a century ago. That would make him 131 years old! Santini and his mob had rescued Thunden from the island known as Fear Cay. They had brought something with them that they think is worth millions but Thunden double crossed them and is now out for himself. He is seeking Kel Avery who is his immediate descendant in the hopes that blood is thicker than water and he can share the treasure.
By their blundering around, the two factions have gotten Doc Savage involved to their eternal regret. Doc pieces the story together and is shocked at his conclusion. Could Dan Thunden have discovered the Fountain of Youth? What is the mystery to be found on Fear Cay? And what is the 'crackling death' that haunts this lost island?

Fear Cay is another classic pulp story from the 1930s. It is full of mysterious menaces, plot twists and turns, and high adventure. This story also features Pat Savage in her second adventure with her famous cousin. This story was serialized by Roger Rittner and Will Murray in the original NPR radio series from the 1980s. It remains one of the most popular stories from the original series and you can enjoy it and another full length Doc Savage tale in Doc Savage Volume 13. Regularly price $12.95, Christmas Special priced through December 13 at $6.47
