"Are you willing to undertake a dangerous mission for the United States, knowing in advance you may never return alive?"
 
Cloak and Dagger was an NBC radio series, a foreign intrigue adventure adapted from the book Cloak and Dagger: The Secret Story of the O.S.S. by Corey Ford and Alistair McBain.
 
Cloak and Dagger was the story of the wartime activities of the OSS — the Office of Strategic Services — “this country's first all-out effort in black warfare...dropping undercover operators behind enemy lines, organizing local partisans to blow bridges and dynamite tunnels, operating the best spy systems of Europe and Asia.” It was a tense half hour of patriots and traitors, of love affairs doomed by war, of triumph, tragedy, and failure. The stories did not always end with the lovers embraced and the mad-dog Germans reeling in defeat; the hero-agent, in accomplishing his mission, sometimes gave up his life.
 
Stories on Cloak and Dagger "came right out of Washington files" of the Office of Strategic Services. A 1950 newspaper article commented, "The stories dramatized each week are true, and yet as fantastic as any fiction writer might be able to dream up.”
 
A syndicated transcription show produced by the Louis G. Cowan agency, Cloak and Dagger was broadcast from May 7 to October 22, 1950.
 
The cast included New York actors Raymond Edward Johnson, Joseph Julian, Berry Kroeger, Everett Sloane, Jackson Beck and many more. Scriptwriter Wyllis Cooper directed the series with research support provided by Percy Hoskins, British journalist, crime reporter and author. The show was directed by Sherman Marks. Announcers were Robert Warren, Karl Weber, and host Corey Ford.
 
The Office of Strategic Services—the progenitor of our Central Intelligence Agency—was one of American History's most colorful and compelling World War II intelligence gathering efforts. It was also, quite understandably, one of our most secret undertakings.

by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 

Pitiless, astute, ambitious, yellow-skinned Wang-ba emerged from the mystic Orient to proclaim himself Emperor of America! Sight of his green face caused bloodcurdling terror; his anger could be appeased only by soul-twisting agony and writhing, long-lasting death... Such was the criminal genius whom Richard Wentworth had to kill. Never before has the Spider been squeezed so tightly between the vise-jaws of the Law and the Lawless. Nor has he ever struggled so fiercely against the pleading of his own brave heart!
 
For ten grim years, the Spider battled the underworld, imprinting his scarlet seal on the bodies of the criminals he slew. No one knew his name. His face was unknown. Pursued by the police, sought by the mob, the Master of Men crushed crime with a blazing intensity never witnessed before or since. Now he’s back with a vengeance in a new series of audiobooks retelling his pulp-pounding exploits, as chronicled by Norvell W. Page, writing as Grant Stockbridge.
 
During the difficult decade encompassed by the years 1933-43, a commanding figure blazed his way through a legion of Depression-era supercriminals, Nazi spies and saboteurs. He was wealthy criminologist Richard Wentworth. He was also secretly the Spider!
 
Never before or since has there been a hero like him. Driven, hunted, and violently committed to exterminating criminals of all calibers. A self-appointed savior of humanity, driven manic-depressive, and possibly undiagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, The Spider was known as the Master of Men.
 
Once more, the incomparable Nick Santa Maria reads another thrilling Spider exploit. Emperor of the Yellow Death originally published in The Spider magazine, December, 1935.

by George Fielding Eliot writing as C.K.M. Scanlon
Read by Richard Epcar
 
 
In the flood of pulp magazines featuring the hard-hitting exploits of a single hero, only one magazine read as if its stories had been torn out of the headlines. That was G-Men, starring the closest equivalent to Eliot Ness and his Untouchables the pulps dared offer up.

Special Agent Daniel Fowler. Young but hardened, the product of the FBI’s new scientific investigation methods, Fowler and his aides, Larry Kendal and Sally Vane, formed a special roving unit of the Bureau, willing and able to rush to any state in the Union to combat counterfeiters, extortionists and sundry foreign spies.

To write the exploits of such a non-nonsense hero, they called in George Fielding Eliot, a former major in U. S. intelligence. In 1933, he resigned as a U. S. Intelligence officer so he could write military non-fiction articles without being hampered by official censorship.

Eliot knew how to operate a Tommy gun, and what it was like to hear the snap and crack of live rounds whistling past your head. He also knew how to get his man—hallmarks of the Mounties and the G-Men both. His credentials were perfect.

Titled after an underworld slang term for kidnapping, with the Lindbergh baby kidnapping fresh in the public consciousness, and inspired by the notorious Purple Gang, the premier exploit of Dan Fowler and his team was called Snatch. It was published under the house pseudonym of C. K. M. Scanlon. It was an instant success among readers who had been reading daily newspaper accounts of the F. B. I.’s successful crusade against John Dillinger and “Baby Face” Nelson, and other otherwise-unstoppable Public Enemies.

Seared by crime, trained by Hoover, and motivated by a stern sense of justice, Special Agent Fowler went on to a long and successful career spanning nearly two decades.

In order to do justice to this riveting hero, we’ve recruited the impeccable-voiced Richard Epcar to narrate Snatch. Let the Tommy guns roar!

Horror Stories! The dark companion to Dime Mystery Magazine. Created to showcase stories too horrible for Terror Tales. The third of the triumvirate of fear pulps. This brand of fiction came to be called Weird Menace. The mystery-and-menace formula proved so successful that publisher Popular Publications produced Dime Mystery Magazine, Terror Tales and Horror Stories. These three dominated the Weird Menace genre all through the 1930s. Blurbed as “mystery-horror” stories instead of “mystery-terror,” Horror Stories was formulated differently that its companion titles. Damn the plot. Pour on the menace! This ebook contains a collection of stories from the pages of Horror Stories magazine, all written by Francis James, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

During radio's "Golden Age", most programs were aired live, rather than prerecorded. Luckily, many were recorded while they were being broadcast — sometimes so a sponsor, a producer, a director, or a performer could listen to them later, other times for legal purposes. Most were recorded onto 16" records, called electrical transcriptions or Transcription Discs. With the introduction of audio tape in the 1950s, transcriptions gradually became a thing of the past, with many being discarded in large quantities. As a result, with the passing of the years, they have become increasingly rare and hard to find.
 
Though it does take special equipment to play such a large record, many radio enthusiasts collect them. Some people are interested solely in discs from a favorite series, while others just like to own a few rare and high-quality transcription recordings to frame and hang on their wall.
 
Buying transcription discs has always been difficult whether it is finding them, bidding against others in an auction, watching the price quadruple in the last few seconds, or not knowing the quality of the seller or the discs. That has all changed. When you see a transcription disc on Radio Archives that you want to buy, add it to the shopping cart and we will ship it to you the same day. Our flat rate postage of only $4.00 for US orders can save you a lot of money on these heavy discs. Radio Archives has handled 30,000 transcription discs over the last 16 years and we know how to ship them safely.
 
Add the transcription discs you want to purchase to the shopping cart along with Old Time Radio CDs, Audiobooks, or Pulps that you want for a low $4 flat rate postage for everything in your order.
 
 
Magic Island was a science-fantasy radio serial syndicated in 1935. The series had 130 15-minute episodes.
 
The storyline followed wealthy Patricia Gregory as she ended her 14-year search in the South Pacific for her long lost daughter Joan. When Joan was one-year-old, the Gregory yacht was shipwrecked near the 30th parallel south. Lashed to a lifeboat, Joan was presumed lost by all but Patricia. In the opening episode, she receives a tip about a white girl living on a mysterious island populated by scientifically advanced people in the Pacific. After the reunion of mother and daughter, the program dramatized their subsequent adventures on the island which could submerge to escape detection. Lots of technological “marvels” are encountered as they get captured, escape, get captured, escape, etc. Great sound and a wonderful retrospective on what 1930’s people thought the future held in store for us as far as technology is concerned.
 
Magic Island featured Sally Creighton as Patricia Gregory, Rosa Barcelo as Joan Gregory, Tommy Carr as Jerry Hall and Will H. Reynolds as Capt. Tex Bradford. The producer-writer was Perry Crandall, who was also the program's announcer.
 
The Magic Island discs are two-sided shellac discs, with one complete 15 minute program on each side.
 
Special sale. All Magic Island transcription discs are 25% off until August 11. Buy one disc or buy 31 discs at the sale price of $22.48 each, normally $29.98 until August 11.

by Will Murray and Lester Dent, writing as Kenneth Robeson, cover illustration by Joe DeVito
 
Why did a desperate man shave his head before visiting Doc Savage headquarters, only to be struck down, his pulsing brain turned to inert stone? What sinister secret did his strange slaying silence? And how was a lizard-green shadow resembling Medusa branded on Doc’s office wall?

These are only some of the questions confronting the Man of Bronze as he pursues a grisly trail of petrified corpses to post-Prohibition Chicago, whose criminal underworld is being terrorized by a serpent-haired demon engaged in a seemingly senseless slaughter spree whose ultimate target will shake Doc Savage’s men to their core.

Suspects are many, clues baffling. Death and danger lurks everywhere they turn—symbolized by the silhouette of a faceless Gorgon.
