The Fibber McGee and Molly Show
The 1941/1942 Season
 
 
Known as one of the best comedies and a program sought after by collectors, Fibber McGee and Molly also stood out as one of the most patriotic shows of the World War II era and beyond. The humor balanced with national pride made the program rather unique and special, as heard in The Fibber McGee and Molly Show, The 1941/1942 Season.
 
According to John Dunning, Fibber McGee and Molly was the most patriotic show on the air, save one. Although remaining at heart a comedy, a chance seemed hardly ever missed to comment on some aspect of the war and how it affected those on the homefront. One of the most memorable episodes of the entire series deals with just such an event, when Fibber buys beef on the black market, finding out of course that it was rotten.
 
Cautionary tales draped in comedy as well as characters involved in scrap drives and working in the war plants, showed just how committed to the cause the entire cast and crew of the show was. Fibber and Molly drove the point home each week, ending the shows encouraging listeners to buy bonds and participate in home front support activities.
 
Enjoy an entire season restored to sparkling audio quality in The Fibber McGee and Molly Show, The 1941/1942 Season. Fans can laugh along listening to not only one of the funniest radio shows ever, but also a show with a whole lot of pride and heart. Enjoy 19 hours, 37 shows of pure fun.
 
Fibber McGee and Molly expert, Karl Pearson, is the Series Contributor for this set.

#4 The Case of the Laughing Corpse
by G.T. Fleming-Roberts
Read by Roger Price
 
 
Magic meets mystery as George Chance battles crime as the Green Ghost! Thrills, legerdemain, and suspense — all courtesy of the most extraordinary man-hunter the world has ever known!
 
The Green Ghost, master of magic, plays danger’s game when a dead man’s hate wreaks havoc on the living! Murder calls the super-detective to action when keys of doom unlock the doors of crime!
 
The Green Ghost was not creator G. T. Fleming-Roberts’ only crime solving magician character. Prior to George Chance taking the pulp stage, Fleming-Roberts had already written the adventures of Diamondstone the Magician, a hero who did not bother with a mask. After the Green Ghost took his final bow, Fleming-Roberts would return to that sort of stage wizard turned crime buster in the Jeffrey Wren series. A possible explanation for his fascination with this type of character exists. Notable for his mysteries in the pulp field, Fleming-Roberts preferred a near common ‘Average Joe’ hero to the more perfect, highly trained, almost unbelievable types that other companies focused on. Even though his readers were not likely all magicians, Roberts wanted The Green Ghost and other mystery solvers to be more down to earth, to be someone a fan might see on the street or share a drink with.
 
The idea of making his work relatable to readers extended to the villains that The Green Ghost and others faced as well. In an article in the Indianapolis Star Magazine, Fleming-Roberts stated, “The menace nowadays has to be something common and familiar… Adults are reading the magazines – kids dropped them in favor of comic books – and you can’t scare grownup mystery readers with a slinking figure in a black cape or a nasty old clutching hand.” This is clearly evident in the street level crime The Green Ghost confronts in his stories.
 
The Case of the Laughing Corpse was originally published in the pages of The Ghost Detective magazine in the Fall of 1940 and is read with mysterious and magical force by Roger Price.

The Ghost! To men of crime, the name sends stabs of terror along their spines. Only six people know that George Chance, professonal stage magician, is in reality the crime fighter, the terror of the underworld, The Ghost! His assistants are Glen Saunders, his near-twin, Joe Harper, man about town, Tiny Tim Terry, a midget, and Merry White, his on-stage assistant and off-stage sweetheart. They know the secret of The Ghost. Ned Standish, Commissioner of Police and Robert Demarest, keen-eyed Medical Examiner are also "in the know." The following year, George Chance added a ghastly green glow to his death's-head features, and became widely known as The Green Ghost.
 
The Ghost first appeared in the January 1940 issue of "The Ghost, Super-Detetive" published by Thrilling Publications, responsible for such other fare as The Black Bat, Captain Danger and The Phantom Detective. He had a total of fourteen adventures published over the next four years. Mystery and magic — thrills and excitement — legerdemain and suspense — you’ll find them all in the Ghost’s repertoire. Now, The Ghost, sometimes called The Green Ghost, returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
 
A steely-eyed private dick with an unshaven jaw of granite... a gat of dull gun-metal gray sags heavily under his armpit... he works the seamy underbelly of the city, coming up against squinty-eyed thugs, weasels who value human life less than the coins jingling in their pocket, and red-lipped bimbos with hot breath, wide eyes and long silky legs. The stories are hard, gritty and action-packed. They fairly scream, "pulp!" This was what Private Detective Stories offered beginning with its first issue in June of 1937. It came from the same publisher who brought you Blazing Western, Candid Detective, The Lone Ranger Magazine, Speed Adventure Stories and Speed Mystery. In all, 134 issues were published until the magazine closed in June of 1949. Private Detective Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Ki-Gor, son of the jungle! Orphaned son of missionary Robert Kilgour, raised in the jungle, he grew to a six foot bronzed-skin giant who ruled the jungles. Joined by Helen Vaughn, his fiance and later wife, Timbo George, the Masai chief, and N'Geeso, the chief of a Pygmy tribe, this band of adventurers roam the wilds of Africa in a series of pulp magazine stories that began in 1939 and ended with the last published story in 1954. Now, Ki-Gor is back, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Action, action and action... in spades! Nothing subtle about it, each issue of Detective Short Stories featured ten-to-twelve relentless, shameless, fierce action tales. Manvis Publications, the same publisher who brought you Ka-Zar, Amazing Detective Cases, American Sky Devils, Uncanny Stories, Six-Gun Western, Marvel Science Stories and many others, brought out the first issue of Detective Short Stories in August of 1937 and continued dishing the pulp thrills until the magazine folded with the October 1943 issue, yet another victim of wartime paper shortages. For twenty-five issues, readers got a wallop of exciting adventure for their thin dime. Detective Short Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Comments From Our Customers!
 
Charles from Canada writes:
Loved this one. Some particularly great action scenes, My favorite: the Phantom desperately hanging onto a plane in flight! Fun over-the-top villain... I found it a very satisfying entry in the Phantom series. Pulp hyperbolic heroics at its finest.
 
Roger Jones writes:
I sure do enjoy all the radio shows on here. I have all the radio shows that I have gotten over the years in every category. I am old fashioned at heart and I enjoy the past music from the places they use to play at different hotels and etc.... Some of them are gone but not forgotten.
 
Timothy Lamb writes:
Another winner from Radio Archives! Continuing a long and winning streak of engaging, well-read audiobooks, the Black Bat series has been amazingly engaging. If you like pulp heroes or superheroes that believe in more...permanent solutions, you will not go wrong!
