#28 The Bloody Forty-Five Days
by Emile C. Tepperman writing as Curtis Steele
Read by Milton Bagby
 
 
The Purple Invasion story #3 of 13
 
America, last citadel of freedom and democracy in the world, has made a valiant but futile stand against the ravening war hordes of the cruel conqueror, Rudolph I, the man whose super-fighting machine is ruthlessly putting the nations of civilized man in thrall. Daily mass executions of men and women — even children — on the Eastern seaboard, are but one of the diabolical means of bringing the surviving patriots to heel. But there is one band that will never yield, who grimly say: “Death before dishonor!” Their leader, Jimmy Christopher, known to them as Operator #5, realizes that only one bold, desperate move can furnish his fellow Americans with the thundering fleet of air destroyers with which alone they can hope to save their country. Grimly, quickly, silently, he sets his plan in action!
 
The Purple Invasion was heady stuff for a pulp magazine. Never before had an action hero failed to resolve the main threat by the end of his own magazine’s lead novel. But in the new Operator #5 magazine, Jimmy Christopher was forced to fight on and on, with no clear victory in sight. In fact, the situation simply got worse and worse with each intense installment. Long-time characters perished. New ones were introduced. They fell in battle. It was heroic tragedy on a scale never before seen.
 
Thundering across a ravished America comes a loot laden train bearing twenty million dollars in gold, hurtling toward the despoiled metropolis of New York, where Emperor Rudolph I has established headquarters. Suddenly the train trembles to a stop. A desperate little band of American patriots, who refuse to bow to the conqueror’s yoke, make a bold attack. Their leader, Jimmy Christopher, known as Operator #5, realizes that that trainload of gold is the only chance for America to repel the brutal invaders!
 
The Bloody Forty-Five Days is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the October-November 1936 issue of Operator #5 magazine.

Performed by 2017 Audie Awards winner, voice actor Milton Bagby.

The Spider #12 Audiobook
Reign of the Silver Terror
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria

 
Fear stalked the corridors and offices on Capitol Hill, for it was from the ranks of the mighty — the rulers and lawmakers of America — that the Silver Assassins sought their victims! Singly, in pairs and in numbered groups they died, laying down their lives for their country — while panic spread, and the Spider, alone aware of the terrific catastrophe which impended, fought through black, bodiless shadows to reach and destroy the menace which festered underground!
 
For ten grim years, the Spider battled the underworld, imprinting his scarlet seal on the bodies of the criminals he slew. No one knew his name. Pursued by the police, sought by the mob, the Master of Men crushed crime with a blazing intensity never witnessed before or since. Now he's back with a vengeance in a new series of audiobooks retelling his pulp-pounding exploits, as chronicled by Norvell W. Page, writing as Grant Stockbridge.
 
Page was a master of the dramatic. In his earliest Spider novels he seemed determined to outdo all that came before.
 
With Reign of the Silver Terror, Page goes all out. Relocating the action to Washington D.C., he plunges Richard Wentworth into a maelstrom of political foment. The Silver King and his deadly assassins are out to overthrow the government of the United States, building a new empire upon a monetary foundation of the precious metal.
 
From the first chapter, where the Spider rescues a number of U.S. senators from being scalded alive by molten silver, to a bizarre and even unbelievable climax on the Senate floor where a dead man pops up from his own coffin to point out his killer, this is one of the great over-the-top Spider novels.
 
That’s not all. During the course of the story’s events, Nita van Sloan crosses the line from being merely Wentworth’s dutiful fiance to becoming complicit with the Spider’s crimes when she makes her first kill!
 
Originally published in The Spider magazine, September, 1934. Read by Nick Santa Maria.

The Full-Length Feature Novel

Death’s Crimson Juggernaut

by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge

Nailed to a cracked tenement wall, bleeding to death from nail-riven hands and feet, a beautiful girl hung, crucified. Sudden, ghoulish laughter shrilled into the night — the mad triumph-cry of the Torture Killer. How could an unsuspecting nation know the dread portent of this first, startling crime, or foresee that the very heart of America would soon be squeezed dry in the Murder Master’s crimsoned, relentless hands... And the Spider himself, fleeing victim of a grim, deadly man-hunt; his allies captured and fettered; his friends dishonored and shamed, is put to the most critical test of his career to battle the dark, evil power of those who drive Death’s Crimson Juggernaut!

Doc Savage became known to more contemporary readers when Bantam Books began reprinting the individual magazine novels in 1964, this time with covers by artist James Bama that featured a bronze-haired, bronze-skinned Doc Savage with an exaggerated widows’ peak, usually wearing a torn khaki shirt and under the by-line “Kenneth Robeson”. The stories were not reprinted in chronological order as originally published, though they did begin with the first adventure, The Man of Bronze. By 1967, Bantam was publishing once a month until 1990, when all 181 original stories plus an unpublished novel, The Red Spider were published. Author Will Murray produced seven more Doc Savage novels for Bantam Books. Bantam also published two books by Philip José Farmer.
 
Used copies of the Bantam Doc Savage paperbacks are now available from Radio Archives Pulp Book Store. We have been building our inventory of Bantam paperbacks for a couple years and have as many as 11 copies of some titles to purchase right now.

Then, in "Fangs of the Dragon" (1942), The Spider visits the town of Bethbury, where the bite of flying dragons drives the populace to insanity and murder! This instant collectible contains two exciting pulp adventures that have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading and features both of the original full color covers as well as interior illustrations that accompany each story.

Transcription Discs
During radio's "Golden Age", most programs were aired live, rather than prerecorded. Luckily, many were recorded while they were being broadcast — sometimes so a sponsor, a producer, a director, or a performer could listen to them later, other times for legal purposes. Most were recorded onto 16" records, called electrical transcriptions or Transcription Discs. With the introduction of audio tape in the 1950s, transcriptions gradually became a thing of the past, with many being discarded in large quantities. As a result, with the passing of the years, they have become increasingly rare and hard to find.
 
Though it does take special equipment to play such a large record, many radio enthusiasts collect them. Some people are interested solely in discs from a favorite series, while others just like to own a few rare and high-quality transcription recordings to frame and hang on their wall.
 
Buying transcription discs has always been difficult whether it is finding them, bidding against others in an auction, watching the price quadruple in the last few seconds, or not knowing the quality of the seller or the discs. That has all changed. When you see a transcription disc on Radio Archives that you want to buy, add it to the shopping cart and we will ship it to you the same day. Our flat rate postage of only $4.00 for US orders can save you a lot of money on these heavy discs. Radio Archives has handled 30,000 transcription discs over the last 19 years and we know how to ship them safely.
 
Add the transcription discs you want to purchase to the shopping cart along with Old Time Radio CDs, Audiobooks, or Pulps that you want for a low $4 flat rate postage for everything in your order.
 
 
 
Magic Island was a science-fantasy radio serial syndicated in 1935. The series had 130 15-minute episodes.
 
The storyline followed wealthy Patricia Gregory as she ended her 14-year search in the South Pacific for her long lost daughter Joan. When Joan was one-year-old, the Gregory yacht was shipwrecked near the 30th parallel south. Lashed to a lifeboat, Joan was presumed lost by all but Patricia. In the opening episode, she receives a tip about a white girl living on a mysterious island populated by scientifically advanced people in the Pacific. After the reunion of mother and daughter, the program dramatized their subsequent adventures on the island which could submerge to escape detection. Lots of technological “marvels” are encountered as they get captured, escape, get captured, escape, etc. Great sound and a wonderful retrospective on what 1930’s people thought the future held in store for us as far as technology is concerned.
 
Magic Island featured Sally Creighton as Patricia Gregory, Rosa Barcelo as Joan Gregory, Tommy Carr as Jerry Hall and Will H. Reynolds as Capt. Tex Bradford. The producer-writer was Perry Crandall, who was also the program's announcer.
 
The Magic Island discs are two-sided shellac discs, with one complete 15 minute program on each side. Excellent condition. Sale end Thursday night August 16th.
