This memorable theme song welcomed its audience to one of the most unique programs of the era of Classic Radio. The concept was simple. The Comic Weekly Man sang his song, then picked up the newspaper, flipped right to the comic strips, and read them aloud to millions of listeners, replete with different voices, music, and sound effects.
This is the ninth issue in the Dusty Ayres series. “Captain Dusty Ayres must be killed at all costs... Kill him on sight... All Black agents report immediately to headquarters...” Agent 10 stared as he listened to this enemy radio message. The first part was not surprising, but the second could only mean that the Blacks were preparing to launch a new offensive — the move which America had been expecting for a long while. But where? How? When would it strike? It was imperative to answer these questions before it was too late — and grimly Dusty and his battle eagles take up the trail, follow it across the Atlantic into enemy skies! Captain Dusty Ayres, ace pilot for the U.S. Air Defense flies in the Silver Flash, an advanced craft of his own design. With his two pals Curly Brooks and Biff Bolton, they battle some of the most diabolical mad scientists and their weirdest inventions. These exciting stories took over the Battle Birds magazine from June 1934 through the July/August issue of 1935, changing the magazine name to Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds. And now Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds is back, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99.
