the SHADOW knows mu wha ha ha ha ha
Today in MYSTERY HISTORY tells us that today is the 85th anniversary of the debut of The Shadow on The Detective Radio Hour. I learned about the Shadow (and the Whistler and A Tale Well-Calculated to Keep you in . . . SUSPENSE!) listening to the Armed Forces Network when we lived in Germany in the late 1970s. On Sunday evenings they'd play classic radio shows like these mysteries and Jack Benny. I can still see that green galley kitchen with the funny little pull-out table, and the clock radio on the windowsill. And probably a dog somewhere.
