THE SHADOW Knight of Darkness

by | Read by Orson Welles, William Johnstone, Bret Morrison, Margot Stevenson, Agnes Moorehead, Marjorie Andersen, Grace Matthews, et al.

Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2008

Eighteen digitally remastered episodes, spanning 10 years of broadcasting, featuring all the veterans of the show AND advertisements for Blue Coal and Goodrich Tires. What more could an old-time radio fan want? Perhaps a few "lost episodes" tossed into the mix? Sure, why not? This collection is crisp, clear, and includes two newly discovered adventures, "The Old People" and "The Voice of the Trumpet." It's hard to know if listening to this recording is JUST like cozying up to the radio and tuning in week after week (as this reviewer wasn't around then, and we get all the episodes at once with no anxious waiting). But as the introductory music swells, and you hear Johnstone or Morrison or (best yet) Welles speak the Shadow's famous lines, don't be surprised if you detect that familiar childhood thrill.
