The Vampire 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!
 
“Plague!” 
 
Across all of Allied France the dread word flew. “Plague spread by enemy planes”... Men died by the thousands — death stalked the world — Yanks were dying by the thousands of a strange disease no one had been able to diagnose. Death stalked the world as G-8 and his two companions faced its phantom wings, daring to follow its blood-choked sky trail to the terror den of the Vampire Ace!
 
Robert J. Hogan, the author of all 110 G-8 pulp adventures, found his inspiration for the character’s name in his own childhood experience with flying. Spending time in his youth at the G-8 Ranch in Colorado, Hogan took his first flight to get there. He then had a fascination with flying, one that carried him into the rather new air corps during World War One. Hogan received training that would later prove invaluable to his career in Pulp aviation fiction, but he never saw battle overseas.
 
Hogan found work following the war as a demonstration flyer and supporter of some of the fledgling airplane manufacturers. Left jobless, though, due to the 1929 Stock Market Crash, Hogan turned to writing Pulp fiction, having read some of the Aviation stories that were increasingly popular and believing if anyone could write such tales, he could.
 
Submitting his first story to Wings Magazine, Robert Hogan started down his path as a writer, one that brought him to Harry Steeger’s attention in 1933. President of Popular Publications, Steeger was looking for just the right author to create Pulp’s next great aviation hero. Thankfully for millions of fans, Hogan was that man.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a strange nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in Purple Aces. Originally published in the February, 1934 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.

Volume 1
by Arthur Leo Zagat
 
“Doc” Turner was one of the least likely heroes that appeared in the pulp magazine stories. He was a little old pharmacist who ran a drug store in the slums of New York, where just about everyone came to him when they had problems. Oh, and what problems they had! Werewolves and vampires mixed in with extortionists and gangsters. And solve their problems he did, with the aid of his strapping red-headed assistant, mechanic Jack Ransom, and his young stock boy Abe Ginsberg.
 
These short stories appeared in the back pages of The Spider magazine, a grand total of 70 of them. Every single one can be found in this collection; not a one is missing.

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 18 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.
 
 
Rhapsody In Rhythm was a music show syndicated by the Transco Radio Transcription Company starting in 1936. The series consisted of 78 fifteen-minute episodes.

Featuring Charles W. Hamp and the Rhythm Rascals. One of several programs syndicated by Transco in the 1930s. Hamp played piano and saxophone and worked in Los Angeles radio in the late 1920s. He recorded for Columbia Records and recorded this series for Transco in 1936-37, crooning and offering up "hot jazz" arrangements of popular tunes.

Hamp, who played for royalty and President Woodrow Wilson, was the highest paid radio artist in 1931, and yet he is all but unknown these days. He was a sensation from the late 1920's right through most of the Great Depression, and recorded a series of Rhapsody in Rhythm shows that were distributed to subscribing radio stations across the country, thanks to the Transco Radio Transcription Company.

1937 proved to be a banner year for Transco, with a wide range of diverse series in distribution and, later in the year, production started on The Cinnamon Bear a series that would entertain and enthrall listeners for many decades to come.

Rhapsody In Rhythm discs are two-sided shellac discs, with one complete 15 minute program on each side. We have multiple copies of each disc and the disc.

Comments From Our Customers!
 
Wayne Kozak writes:
I love “Mystery is my Hobby”. It is a fun series. The actors are engaging. They have fun in their roles. The mysteries are engaging. Some of the writing is not up to Chandler but it is still good. Some times the characterizations are over the top but they still hold your attention.
