In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Dec 25, 2012

Mix equal parts of Doc Savage and the Shadow, and what do you get?  The Avenger! 

Author Paul Ernst wrote the Avenger novels on which the radio shows were based.  Ernst had two mentors:  Walter Gibson, who wrote the Shadow novels, and Lester Dent, who, under the pen name Kenneth Robeson, wrote the Doc Savage novels.

The Avenger was on the air twice - in 1941-42, and again in 1945-46. 

This episode, Keys of the City, first aired on September 21, 1945.
