197-140224 In the Old-Time Radio Corner - Tailspin Tommy


Tailspin Tommy started as a newspaper comic strip in 1928, and it spawned two movie serials, four movies, a comic book series, a Big Little book (pictured), a novel - and a radio show.

Tailspin Tommy Tomkins, his best friend Skeets Milligan, and his girlfriend Betty Lou Barnes all fly for airship developer Paul Smith in a town called Three Point, Texas. 

Strangely enough, the actors are unknown.  Anybody?

This was the first radio episode, known both as "The Hidden Mine" and "Murder in the Sky."  It aired on September 5, 1941.
