In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Jul 15, 2014

Bob Hastings, who died last month, was best-known by old-time radio fans as Archie Andrews, of the Archie-Jughead-Betty-Veronica series. 

But before playing Archie, Bob was Jerry, the young mate on Captain Silver's ship, the Seahound.  The Seahound sailed the seven seas in search of adventure.  The program was written by Fran Striker, who also created and wrote scripts for The Lone Ranger.

The Seahound had two runs, from 1942 to 1944, and then as a summer replacement show in 1948. 

Because the episodes were just 15 minutes each, I've been able to fit two of them into this show.  They are called The Capture and The Escape, and they both aired in October, 1944.
