The Adventures of Jungle Jim
Volume 2

 
Jungle Jim! The very name conjures up images of exotic locales, wild beasts and hostile natives. Jungle Jim braved these with the aid of his faithful Hindu companion, Kolu, as he traveled the wilds of southeastern Asia in search of adventure.
 
Jungle Jim is best remembered as the star of sixteen Columbia B-movies starring Johnny Weissmuller, fresh off his twelve-year stint as Tarzan, beginning in 1948. But Jungle Jim’s history goes back more than a decade.
 
Produced by Jay Clark and often written by Gene Stafford, The Adventures of Jungle Jim was on the air weekly from 1935 to 1954. A combination of jungle danger and colonial politics, the show brought listeners tales of slave traders, pirates, foreign spies, wild beasts, poachers, hostile tribes, and, during World War II, the Japanese, as Jim often served as an Allied operative. Armed with his trusty .45 automatic, the adventurer searched for lost treasure and investigated such mysteries as ghosts and unknown islands. Throughout it all, Jungle Jim maintained a cool head.
 
Beginning with Tarzan, the twentieth century was full of jungle characters. Jungle Jim is one of the unique ones, in that he wasn’t a barely-literate loincloth-clad tree-dwelling wild man, but rather Jim Bradley, a professional hunter in the mold of heroes of earlier popular fiction such as H. Rider Haggard’s Allan Quatermain and Lord John Roxton from Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World.
 
Jungle Jim was the archetypal Great White Hunter who usually explores the kind of “lost worlds” which filled the pages of adventure magazines, and later, movie serials. He was everything one could ask for in a pulp protagonist – handsome, brave, resourceful.
 
This volume contains 40 fifteen-minute episodes from 1936 and 1937, including the conclusion of The Purple Triangle (#41-53) and the beginning of The Tiger’s Claw (#54-80), for ten hours of exciting and intelligent adventure.

The Hearst Newspaper Weekly Comics........ January 19, 2018
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
Jungle Jim was carried simultaneously in the Hearst newspaper Sunday weekly comic strips with the radio show also being aired weekly.  The Hearst Corporation advertised weekly comic strips in color with images to match the story and characters being carried in their weekly comics.  These advertising methods worked in getting the public to both read the Hearst newspapers and also listen to the 15 minute radio serials.
I speculate that is the appealing aspect of these very early radio shows from the 1930's.  The early radio shows had well developed characters to interest an adult audience and children alike with good adventurous scripts not resorting to overt sex and dark violence.

The Radio Archives staff has restored these old and problematic radio shows due to age and lack of care.  I assume many are not restorable or lost, but with the techniques applied at Radio Archives the buyer can rest assured of the best product available on the market.  

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
