The Planet Man
Volume 2


"Great blazing meteors!"

"The Planet Man" was distributed to local radio stations on translucent red 16" transcription disks.When we last looked in on Dantro, the Planet Man - intergalactic troubleshooter for the League of Planets, the law enforcement body for peace and justice in the celestial world - he and his faithful sidekick Slats (an Earth engineer who participated in that planet's first rocket expedition) were in a distant galaxy on the planet of the Mardee, seeking assistance in their mission to defeat the unspeakably diabolical Marston, the Martian dictator who has declared himself ruler of the entire solar system. In this second collection, containing the final twenty-six episodes of the whiz-bang space serial "The Planet Man," we find our heroes valiantly trying to defeat their nemesis and encountering new villains as well: Marston's evil female scientist counterpart Gaza, a race of insect men, and a planet of robots that have seized control of civilization from humans.

Produced in about 1950 by Palladium Radio Productions, "The Planet Man" is a serialized return to classic radio kiddie sci-fi shows like "Flash Gordon" and "Buck Rogers." The background on "The Planet Man" is sketchy at best, even with the original discs close at hand. Various sources date its syndicated run around 1952-53, but specific airdate information remains unknown. Palladium transcribed a total of 78 15-minute episodes for afternoon strip, with 76 episodes extant today. (The first and fourth installments, likely contained on a single audition disc, are missing and have never been located.)

The cast of the series also remains shrouded in mystery; only the announcer (Phil Tonken), organist (Jon Gart) and voice of the robot characters (Joseph Boland) have been identified. But though there is still much information to be learned about "The Planet Man," one thing does remain certain: it's great entertainment, offering loads of breezy, golly-jeepers, shoot 'em up fun for old-time radio fans aged eight to eighty.
