Double Detective magazine wanted a character like The Shadow, so
they hired a writer to create one.
Result: The Green Lama, a multimillionaire American who studied under Tibetian masters, and returned to the United States with superpowers.
The Green Lama began as a series of short novels in Double Detective magazine, then he appeared in a series of comic books, and finally CBS put him on the radio, with voice artist extraordinaire playing the Green Lama.
This episode, The Last Dinosaur, first aired on July 2, 1949.
