Old Time Radio
Volume 22
 
 
Being a family centered comedy, The Great Gildersleeve often revolved around the lives and antics of Gildy’s well behaved niece, Marjorie, and wiseacre nephew, Leroy. Portrayed originally by Lurene Tuttle, many of the episodes focused on Marjorie involved her suitors, and then her own family once one of the boyfriends, Bronco Thompson, married her. Gildy’s twelve-year-old nephew, Leroy, was actually portrayed by an adult, Walter Tetley. Tetley made a career of playing child roles as voice actor well into his thirties. Leroy was just obstinate and stubborn enough to be the perfect needle to pop the windbag Gildy at just the funniest moments.
 
Gildersleeve may have been the man of the house, but Birdie, the maid, ran things in the home on The Great Gildersleeve. Birdie over time was revealed as the real brains behind the operation of the family she took care of. This was due in part to writers wanting a more realistic portrayal of the character, but also much credit must be given to actress Lillian Randolph. She brought a whole range of emotions to the role of Birdie, from a joyous laugh to a compassion unmatched when necessary.
 
Whenever Gildersleeve needed to vent or boast about his life or family, he made his way to Mr. Peavey’s drugstore. Peavey, as played by Richard LeGrand, was the long suffering listening ear that Gildy always regaled or assaulted with his latest victory or, more often than not, his most recent troubles. Peavey spoke with a twang heavily rooted in the Midwest and would often respond to Gildersleeve’s rants and ideas with “Well, now, I wouldn’t say that.” This became the most popular catchphrase of The Great Gildersleeve, a program known for coining well used catchphrases.
 
Discover why The Great Gildersleeve is not only considered a great comedy, but also one of the best shows of classic radio in the twelve original broadcasts of The Great Gildersleeve, Volume 22, complete with Kraft Foods commercials and restored to sparkling digital quality.

Red Fangs of the Sky Emperor
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 can’t escape the Death that awaits you —!”
 
And in the still of the night, in the hangar at Le Bourget, Death creeps slowly, steadily along — then strikes!
 
There is a price upon the life of the Master Spy! — for each drop of his blood they shall pay in gold! G-8 does not know the fate that awaits him while Fokkers carry strange death through the skies where they spread their wings.
 
Of all the genres covered by Pulp Fiction, Aviation Pulp is unique in a sense. Although it burned brightly for a relatively short period of time during the heyday of Pulp magazines, the nostalgic interest in aviation, particularly that of World War One, gave birth to one of the most endearing Pulp characters ever created, G-8.
 
Referred to many fans today either as Aviation or Aviator Pulp, or even Flying Pulp, this type of story gained a name all its own during the era it was most popular. According to sources, writers of Pulp tales featuring pilots and aerial warfare referred to what they wrote as ‘Yammering Guns’, based on a comment made by one of the writers of such stories. The phrase refers to the noisiness of battles between airplanes fighting in mid air, firing bullets at one another from machine guns.
 
Standing out as a sterling example of Yammering Guns Fiction, G-8 and His Battle Aces also skirted the fine line between that and Weird Menace. From tentacled floating beasts to resurrected Vikings and tiger men, the variety of villains that the Master Spy tackled lent itself to stories more reminiscent of Lovecraft or Howard.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat an evil nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in Red Fangs of the Sky Emperor. Originally published in the November, 1939 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.

Corpse Contraband
by G. T. Fleming-Roberts writing as Brant House
Read by Milton Bagby
 
 
Operating out of the supposedly haunted Montgomery Mansion, Secret Agent “X” ventures forth in a bewildering array of false identities to infiltrate the darkest underbellies of the Underworld—and destroy it from within. The only clue to his true identity is his haunting whistle…..
 
Ten thousand years ago it had been written in brass that the Yezidee would overrun the world with blood. And now Erlika, the daughter of Satan, had smuggled in the Yezidee to form an unholy alliance with the American underworld. And Secret Agent “X”—man of a thousand faces—found himself stalemated by ageless magic and barbaric cruelty.
 
The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core. Faceless and unsung, “X” infiltrates these threats in a bewildering array of disguises.
 
Although Paul Chadwick created Secret Agent “X”, G. T. Fleming-Roberts contributed the most stories to the character’s canon. Fleming-Roberts contributed to series characters other than “X”. Most notably, Diamondstone the Magician, The Green Ghost, and Jeffrey Wren were crime solvers of a sort that Fleming-Roberts enjoyed creating; magician detectives. This interest in slightly different crime tales probably contributed a great deal to Fleming-Roberts’ work on Secret Agent “X”.
 
Like many of his Pulp peers, Secret Agent “X” worked with a female companion who walked the fine line between aide and love interest. Betty Dale, a reporter, played a pivotal role in the entire series. Most stories deftly handled the balance of Betty’s emotions, teetering between her dedication to the mission and an attraction to a man whose real name she didn’t even know.
 
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of Corpse Contraband, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, December 1938 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.

Hollywood Monsters
 
It’s 1949 and army veteran C.O. Jones is living in Los Angeles working as a private investigator. When he’s hired to find a missing starlet, he soon finds himself embroiled in a sophisticated conspiracy which not only includes kidnapping but high profile blackmail as well.
 
All of which would be enough to keep any honest, hardworking P.I. busy but when it’s Jones, there is also the added element of magic to consider. Possessing an uncanny ability to recognize arcane abilities in others, Jones begins to uncover even deadlier shadows in the background. Never mind one of them may actually be a real werewolf with his own personal interest in the case.
 
With C.O. Jones, often times the monsters aren’t only up on the big silver screen. Read with stirring excitement by Roberto Scarlato.

Radio Archives Pulp Classics
 
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.
 
Capt. Hazzard was closely patterned off Street & Smith's Doc Savage character, in an attempt to capitalize on the rival publication's success. Having regained his eyesight after being blind for fifteen years, Hazzard retained the special abilities with which his blindness had endowed him, including the ability to telepathically communicate with his aides. With Washington MacGowen and Jake Cole, Captain Hazzard adventured across the globe, helping those in need. Unfortunately, the magazine series failed to take off and ended after only the one inaugural issue. Captain Hazzard returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Complete Action -Mystery Novel
Python Men Of Lost City
by Paul Chadwick writing as Chester Hawks
A fiery curtain of doom dropped on the first act of the Phoenix’s sinister murder spectacle. And that curtain eclipsed the drama of the reptile-skinned stowaway from nowhere. But it was just the first act, for the Phoenix and his barbaric battalions of Python Men were staging a weird welcome for the one man who defied them. That man was Capt. Hazzard — peer of perilous adventure and master of modern science.

Startling Stories eBook
September 1948
 
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.
 
Startling Stories was the younger sibling of Thrilling Wonder Stories. It began in 1939 at the urging of science fiction fans who clamored for a full-length novel in each issue. At this point, Thrilling Wonder Stories contained a variety of novelets and short stories, but fans wanted something longer that allowed for more character development. And thus, Startling Stories was born. Each issue started off with a book-length novel, and was filled out with a variety of short stories, science columns, special features and, of course, letters to the editor. Some of science-fiction's best authors appeared in Startling Stories, including luminaries such as Stanley G. Weinbaum, Eando Binder, Edmond Hamilton, Alfred Bester and Robert Campbell, Jr. The magazine thrived through the 1940s and early 1950s, but fading revenues forced it to close with the Fall 1955 issue, after a 99-issue run. Startling Stories now returns with these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Comments From Our Customers!
 
James B Dean writes:
We are there with a day and a half's coverage of the D-Day invasion. It is marvelous how well radio can make one feel that you are right there all that long time ago. An excellent set.
 
Eric writes:
I'm new to the Spider and this is my second adventure. Stories are fun and not complex. The reader is amazing and is a master of voices. So if you like adventure series that can entertain you for a few hours, I'd recommend this. But word of caution, they are violent and not politically correct.
 
Wayne Kozak writes:
I really like the Johnny Dollar series. I got hooked on it as soon as I heard it. I have listened to other actors in the role but my favorite is Bob Bailey hands down. I like both versions: 15 minute and 30 minute. I lean towards the 30 minute version.
