Description
 
Chandu the Magician
The Return of Roxor
Volume 5
 
 
Tom Collins played the lead role of American-born Frank Chandler, who had learned occult secrets from a yogi in India. Known as Chandu, he possessed several supernatural skills, including astral projection, teleportation and the ability to create illusions. Chandu's goal was to "go forth with his youth and strength to conquer the evil that threatens mankind”. "Time and space are only an illusion” to the American called Chandler. Endowed with strange gifts, in the first episode he teleported himself to his sister's Beverly Hills home.
 
Launched in 1931 on KHJ in Los Angeles, the series was soon heard throughout the West Coast. It was then heard, starting in February 1932, over WOR in the East. Nationally, it aired over Mutual starting October 8, 1932.
 
Chandu the Magician was revived on the Mutual-Don Lee Network on June 28, 1948 as a 15-minute weekday program. Radio Archives has restored all 154 fifteen minute episodes of this exciting radio serial.
 
Starring Tom Collins as Chandu and Luis van Rooten as the villainous Roxor, plotting world domination. Chandu’s sister, Dorothy Regent, was portrayed by Irene Tedrow. Cyril Armbrister directed the scripts by Vera Oldham which took Chandu to far-flung locales, both real and mythical. Romantic interludes for Chandu were introduced with Egyptian Princess Nadji played by Veola Vonn. Also appearing in the cast were Norman Field, Lee Millar, and Joy Terry. Created by Harry A. Earnshaw and Raymond R. Morgan with Howard Culver as the announcer and music by organist Juan Rolando (Korla Pandit), the series continued until January 28, 1949 when it changed to a 30-minute format, each with a self-contained storyline. The oriental-styled musical score via an eerie organ and crashing symbols created a highly effective out-of-the world atmosphere.
 
White King Soap was the sponsor for all the episodes in this serial.
 
In 1932 Chandu the Magician was produced as a film, with Edmund Lowe as Chandu and Bela Lugosi as Roxor. In The Return of Chandu (1934) Lugosi portrayed Chandu, and in Chandu on the Magic Island (1935) Bela Lugosi once again played Chandu.
 
Chandu the Magician, Volume 5 The Return of Roxor has been expertly restored for Sparkling Audio Quality by Radio Archives and features a beautiful cover by the great artist Virgil Finlay.

The Action Intensifies.......... January 27, 2016
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
The action actually intensifies in this last Volume than in earlier episodes which is to be expected.  Korla Pandit continues his exotic Hammond Organ musical score for this series of the last of the 15 minute Radio programs.  After these were completed, the Radio Serial went to a 30 minute format.  
As with most Radio Serials, each segment  ends on a suspenseful cliff-hanger, which works effectively in getting the listener back for the next segment. Highly recommended as a Radio Serial with a long history of prior Radio Shows and Motion Pictures.
