Captain Midnight
Volume 3, The Mysterious Voice
 
 
World War One flying aces Robert M. Burtt and Wilfred G. Moore were responsible for bringing the adventures of Army Air Pilot Captain Jim "Red" Albright – a.k.a. Captain Midnight – across the airwaves at Chicago radio station WGN in 1938.
 
Like his creators, Captain Midnight saw plenty of aerial combat action in the skies over the combat zones in Europe during the Great War. Army Air Pilot Captain Jim “Red” Albright’s back story was that he earned the moniker of “Captain Midnight” after returning back from a high risk mission to an Allied airfield exactly as the clock struck midnight. The General who had sent Albright on the mission called him “Captain Midnight.”
 
The adventures of Captain Midnight were originally heard in syndication on select mid-western radio stations, including Chicago Radio Station WGN in 1938. Originally sponsored by the Skelly Oil Company, Captain Midnight did not become a nationwide phenomenon on the airwaves until Ovaltine took over sponsorship of the program in 1940 and expanded its range on the airwaves over the Mutual Radio Network.
 
A love of aviation ran deep within the veins of William G. Skelly. After founding the Skelly Oil Company in 1919, which would eventually become the world’s largest independent oil company; Skelly went on to found in 1928 the Spartan School of Aeronautics and the Spartan Aircraft Company.
 
Listen as Captain Midnight played by Bill Bouchey, Chuck Ramsey, Patsy Donovan, and Major Steele battle Ivan Shark, his daughter Fury, and Gardo in these 88 fifteen minute shows presented in 3 Volumes. Great commercials and the Captain Midnight Photo Premium and Airline route map premium were offered by the Skelly Oil company.
 
Captain Midnight has never sounded better thanks to the Radio Archives audio engineering team. Captain Midnight, Volume 3, The Mysterious Voice is available now!
