Mystery & Suspense • 2 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1997

As the musical theme from Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee" begins, old-time radio fans will know what's coming--the Green Hornet's fight against crime. The Hornet is the alias of Britt Reid, the daily Sentinel's publisher, who pursues racketeers and swindlers in four original episodes collected in this program. A full cast gives voice to his comrades--Kato, his faithful valet; Ed Lowry, the eager reporter; Casey, his devoted secretary; and other stalwarts of the series. The sound effects are wonderful--especially when we consider they were made without the sophisticated equipment available today. Listeners may be grateful and others disappointed that the original commercials have been removed, although the stock introduction remains. The action and suspense of these period programs have plenty of appeal for young, contemporary listeners. These episodes can be delightful family listening.
