Old Time Radio
 
Boston native Bob Elliott was hired by 5000-watt radio station WHDH, working the station's morning drive time slot as a disc jockey. Ray Goulding was doing WHDH's hourly newscasts. The two men soon discovered that they enjoyed a real rapport over the airwaves and, after Goulding's newscast was over, he would often join Elliott in witty, ad-libbed skits that slowly and surely developed a devoted fan base. When WHDH obtained the rights to the Braves-Red Sox games, management offered the two men twenty-five minutes before the start of each game to showcase their unique buffoonery, and dubbed the proceedings with the catchy title Matinee with Bob and Ray.
 
For Bob and Ray fans that are only familiar with their network offerings on NBC, CBS, or NPR, the programs make for fascinating listening, offering a revealing insight into the workings of local radio during the 1940s. Matinee can best be described as sort of a free-form style of comedy jazz; nothing is scripted (well, about 90% is unscripted) and the program allows both men to indulge in flights of fancy, often veering onto offbeat comedic tangents from the most mundane mentions.
 
Matinee with Bob and Ray continued on WHDH in various formats and time slots until 1951. Beginning with quarter and half-hour shows on NBC and also launching their television show. Their five-minute appearances on NBC Radio's Monitor began in 1955, and four years later they moved to CBS for what many fans consider their finest hour, Bob and Ray Present the CBS Radio Network (1959-60). After a two-year period of concentrating on work in commercials, they returned to New York's WHN for an all-afternoon show, and moved to WOR around 1973. In the 1980s, they were entertaining public radio audiences with their NPR series, which ended in 1987.
 
Radio Archives is proud to present the two men at their finest, with Volume 4 of hilarious Matinee with Bob & Ray shows in Sparkling sound.

The Tick-Tack-Toe Murders
by Robert Wallace
Read by Milton Bagby
 
 
Forged in war, The Phantom Detective wages a one-man battle on crime! Solving impossible mysteries and delivering his own justice, he is the underworld’s masked nightmare!
 
The Phantom Detective runs a mad race with death in this action-packed mystery of a sinister killer’s fiendish, diabolical crimes. The Phantom Detective knows no fear, admits no failure! Boldly facing perils that would make the bravest of men quail, he dares to pursue his chosen career as Nemesis of Crime despite the bitterest, most formidable foes ever faced by man. He is the Scourge of the Underworld, dedicated to the annihilation of the lawless! His genius intellect and agile body are his two greatest weapons in fighting crime!
 
Ned Pines was the man behind a publishing company that went under many names during its existence. Known at different times as Better, Standard, and Thrilling Publications, it’s the company’s tenure as Thrilling that saw the birth of one of Pulp’s greatest heroes, The Phantom Detective! Taking a cue from the success of Street & Smith’s The Shadow magazine, the first such magazine to feature a hero as its title and lead feature, Pines imagined that following suit might prove lucrative for his own endeavor. Putting this intent into action, Thrilling Publications released the first issue of The Phantom Detective magazine in February 1933, just a scant thirty or so days before Street & Smith delivered another soon to be legend, Doc Savage in his own magazine. Keeping up with both his predecessor and the hero that followed him by a month, The Phantom Detective ran in his own magazine for 170 issues, just behind the other two characters’ achievements. Pines’ masked sleuth also set a record the other two did not, his magazine being published for a total of twenty years!
 
‘The Tick-Tack-Toe Murders’ was originally published in the March 1934 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.

The Gorilla Staffel
by Robert J. Hogan
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 

They called G-8 the Flying Spy. History never recorded his exploits—and for good reason! No one would ever believe World War I was that wild!

 

“You cannot kill me,” the spy shouted. “Your execution squad has just shot me, yet here I stand, as much alive as ever. There are many more like me in Germany. Bullets cannot kill them!” And G-8, listening, knew this strange man spoke the truth — in part at least. All up and down the Front that terrible news spread. For a strange staffel had taken to war skies — a staffel of pilots who could not be killed. Bullets went into them — through them; they only laughed and fought on. Horror gripped the Allies as three Yanks set out, pledged to pit fighting wings against invincible aces! How could G-8 and his aces dare hope to conquer an enemy that could not die?

 

From its debut in 1933, G-8 and His Battle Aces was a success, finding fans especially with children and teenagers. Originally just writing these fantastical aviation yarns to feed himself, author Robert J. Hogan found himself a successful author, thanks to America’s Master Spy. Penning a full length adventure monthly, Hogan was one of the top earning pulp authors at the height of G-8’s popularity, making as much as $1000.00 a tale. He wrote other pulp tales too, westerns and the like, even creating another series character, The Mysterious Wu Fang. Eventually leaving pulps to write western novels and for the Saturday Evening Post, Hogan was known to comment that the one character that fans talked to him about more than any other until his death was a pilot, like himself, yet different than anyone who’d flown before him, G-8!

 

Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a deadly nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in ‘The Gorilla Staffel’. Originally published in the May 1935 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.

 

Nick DeGregorio composed the music for the G-8 and His Battle Aces series of audiobooks.

Holster Full of Death
by Fred Adams Jr.
Read by Joe Formichella
 
 
A Gathering of Horrors
 
The mysterious Master has been seeking the half-breed Indian Sam who rides with the Dead Sheriff as his companion Cheveyo. It is all a ruse, as the fabled zombie lawman is nothing more than a puppet corpse manipulated by Sam through the use of a magic amulet; an amulet Sam stole from one of the Master’s agents.
 
When the Great Castwell’s traveling magic show appears claiming to have the Dead Sheriff as one of its acts, the Master dispatches the demonic twins Damon and Emile Loizeux to investigate. They discover that Castwell is a fraud and his Dead Sheriff is merely an actor in disguise. Still, if allowed to continue, the show will ultimately attract Sam and his pal, journalist Richard O’Malley. Thus the trap is baited setting up a confrontation that will be both horrific and cataclysmic.
 
Veteran pulp writer Fred Adams Jr. creates a fast-paced weird western thriller featuring the characters created by the late Mark Justice adding to the saga of the west’s most bizarre hero, the Dead Sheriff.
 
Read with stirring excitement by Joe Formichella.

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. As a special bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this series of eBooks.
 
G-8 and His Battle Aces rode the nostalgia boom ten years after World War I ended. These high-flying exploits were tall tales of a World War that might have been, featuring monster bats, German zombies, wolf-men, harpies, Martians, and even tentacled floating monsters. Most of these monstrosities were the work of Germany’s seemingly endless supply of mad scientists, chief of whom was G-8’s recurring Nemesis, Herr Doktor Krueger. G-8 battled Germany’s Halloween shock troops for over a decade, not ceasing until the magazine folded in the middle of World War II. G-8 and His Battle Aces return in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

As told by G-8 to Robert J. Hogan
“You cannot kill me,” the spy shouted. “Your execution squad has just shot me, yet here I stand, as much alive as ever. There are many more like me in Germany. Bullets cannot kill them!” And G-8, listening, knew this strange man spoke the truth — in part at least. He had already met a Boche staffel whom bullets could not injure! Who were these invincible pilots? How could G-8 and his aces dare hope to conquer an enemy that could not die?
