The Comic Weekly Man
Volume 1
 
 
Listen to Lon Clark discussing The Comic Weekly Man from a 1944 FOTR panel discussion.

 
“I’m The Comic Weekly Man, the jolly Comic Weekly Man and I’m here to read the funnies to you happy boys and honeys.”

This memorable theme song welcomed its audience to one of the most unique programs of the era of Classic Radio. The concept was simple. The Comic Weekly Man sang his song, then picked up the newspaper, flipped right to the comic strips, and read them aloud to millions of listeners, replete with different voices, music, and sound effects.
 
Airing on Mutual beginning in 1947, The Comic Weekly Man combined two pastimes important to American families, Radio and Comic strips. Reading from Puck: The Comic Weekly found in the papers owned by William Randolph Hearst, The Comic Weekly Manbrought comic strip favorites – from Flash Gordon to Beetle Bailey, from Prince Valiant to Snuffy Smith - to life in a way most strips had never been heard.
 
One amazing aspect of this program is just how many voices were heard each week. The Comic Weekly Man, voiced by veteran radio actor Lon Clark, voiced all the male parts while Little Miss Honey, a young girl, assisted with the female roles. A whole cast of comic strip heroes and villains performed by two actors.
 
Fully restored, the sparkling audio quality of this collection features 12 episodes of comic strips turned radio adventures. Listen as the comic strips of your childhood joke, fight, and tickle their way to your ears with the The Comic Weekly Man.

Business like in the old days March 2, 2013
Reviewer: Joe Ciemiak from Frostburg, MD United States  
I ordered a six CD set (Comic Weekly Man) and as usual received it securely  packaged and in a timely fashion.  One playing of the first CD and I knew what I ordered wasn't what I thought it was...my fault.  I requested an exchange pulp audio item (Operator #5, The invisable Empire)  and expectd a seris of requirements that wouldn't make it worth the exchange.  I was wrong.

    I reurned the item I had ordered and sent the difference in cost. Less than a week later I received the new item.  It doen't get better in today's world of doing business over the Internet.  

    And last, but far from least, this new album was my first introduction to the pulp stories done via audio.    Outstanding.  I'll be ordring more of these audio verrsions of the pulp classics.
