Jerry at Fair Oaks
Volume 1
 
 
Very few radio shows that aired during Radio’s Golden Age between the early 1930s right on up into the 1950s managed to spin off an equally successful sequel series – yet Jerry Dugan’s circus adventures proved to be so popular amongst young listeners that a sequel series about Jerry’s adventures in a military school – Jerry at Fair Oaks – quickly followed.
 
Jerry Dugan’s first set of radio adventures – Jerry of the Circus - began in 1937, when Hollywood-based Transco first conceived of the story of Jerry Dugan, an orphaned boy who is taken in by the Randall Brothers’ Circus after the death of his father.
 
Jerry and his dog Rags are unofficially adopted by the Randall Brothers’ Circus and are quickly befriended by most of the performers. Mystery and intrigue quickly follow and Jerry discovers that one of the circus performers is actually his long lost uncle who is suffering from amnesia!
 
Jerry at Fair Oaks picks up shortly after Sam Randall is named Jerry Dugan’s legal guardian. While Jerry’s new found family love him, they believe that a circus is no place for a bright boy with plenty of potential to grow up in. So Sam Randall decides to enroll Jerry as a full-time boarding student at the Military Academy at Fair Oaks.
 
Jerry’s adventures at Fair Oaks are often seen as a touching coming of age drama of a young boy taking his first steps towards manhood. While Jerry hates to leave the circus behind; he soon makes new friends – and even enemies – among his fellow cadets while participating in the academy’s football and polo teams. Jerry also becomes involved in a mystery surrounding his roommate and fellow cadet Les.
 
Jerry at Fair Oaks is a timeless and classic coming of age story that still enthralls listeners with its powerful storytelling.

One of the best April 25, 2014
Reviewer: Dominick Cancilla from Santa Monica, California United States  
When my son was younger, we listened to a lot of kids' radio shows as we drove on errands. I think we tried pretty much everything that is available (including listening to all the Superman episodes I could find).

Out of all those years of listening, the two shows that he (now 16) remembers most fondly are Jerry of the Circus and Jerry at Fair Oaks. Not only was the acting good and the story interesting in both of these series, but the writing was also excellent. There would at times be multiple, overlapping story threads to keep things interesting, but the writer managed to keep everything clear enough that a child could follow the plot without difficulty.

My only sadness was that Jerry at Fair Oaks felt like it ended before it was ready to end. I could certainly have listened to quite a bit more. I ordered Jerry at Fair Oaks the moment it became available at Radio Archives -- this is definitely a show that deserves to be heard in the best possible quality.
