The Adventures of Jungle Jim
Volume 6
 
 
Jungle Jim! The very name conjures up images of exotic locales, wild beasts and hostile natives. Jungle Jim braved these with the aid of his faithful Hindu companion Kolu as he traveled the wilds of southeastern Asia in search of adventure.
 
Jungle Jim is best remembered as the star of sixteen Columbia B-movies starring Johnny Weissmuller, fresh off his twelve-year stint as Tarzan, beginning in 1948. But Jungle Jim’s history goes back more than a decade.
 
Produced by Jay Clark and often written by Gene Stafford, The Adventures of Jungle Jim was on the air weekly from 1935 to 1954. A combination of jungle danger and colonial politics, the show brought listeners tales of slave traders, pirates, foreign spies, wild beasts, poachers, hostile tribes, and, during World War II, the Japanese, as Jim often served as an Allied operative. Armed with his trusty .45 automatic, the adventurer searched for lost treasure and investigated such mysteries as ghosts and unknown islands. Throughout it all, Jungle Jim maintained a cool head.
 
Beginning with Tarzan, the pulp era was full of jungle characters. Jungle Jim is one of the unique ones, in that he wasn’t a barely-literate loincloth-clad tree-dwelling wild man, but rather Jim Bradley, a hunter – a “great white hunter” in the mold of heroes of earlier popular fiction such as H. Rider Haggard’s Allan Quatermain and Lord John Roxton from Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World.
 
Jungle Jim was the archetypal Great White Hunter that one thinks of at the mention of “lost worlds”, which filled the pages of pulp magazines, and later, movie serials. He was everything one could ask for in a pulp protagonist – handsome, brave, resourceful.
 
Intended for a general audience, and not just children, this series’ storylines are richer than the usual juvenile radio fare. The show had a large adult audience as well as children due to its maturity. Each exciting fifteen minutes episode opened with a section of the William Tell overture.
 
This volume contains forty fifteen-minute episodes from 1939 and 1940, including the conclusion of “Stacey” (#201-213) and the beginning of “In Quest of Peter Stone” (#214-240), for ten hours of exciting and intelligent adventure.
