World War One flying aces Robert M. Burtt and Wilfred G. Moore were responsible for bringing the adventures of Army Air Pilot Captain Jim "Red" Albright – a.k.a. Captain Midnight – across the airwaves at Chicago radio station WGN in 1938.
Like his creators, Captain Midnight saw plenty of aerial combat action in the skies over the combat zones in Europe during the Great War. Army Air Pilot Captain Jim “Red” Albright’s back story was that he earned the moniker of “Captain Midnight” after returning back from a high risk mission to an Allied airfield exactly as the clock struck midnight. The General who had sent Albright on the mission called him “Captain Midnight.”
The adventures of Captain Midnight were originally heard in syndication on select mid-western radio stations, including Chicago Radio Station WGN in 1938. Originally sponsored by the Skelly Oil Company, Captain Midnight did not become a nationwide phenomenon on the airwaves until Ovaltine took over sponsorship of the program in 1940 and expanded its range on the airwaves over the Mutual Radio Network.
A love of aviation ran deep within the veins of William G. Skelly. After founding the Skelly Oil Company in 1919, which would eventually become the world’s largest independent oil company; Skelly went on to found in 1928 the Spartan School of Aeronautics and the Spartan Aircraft Company.
Listen as Captain Midnight played by Bill Bouchey, Chuck Ramsey, Patsy Donovan, and Major Steele battle Ivan Shark, his daughter Fury, and Gardo in The Perada Treasure. An Aztec temple and underground waterfall add to the fun of these 88 fifteen minute shows presented in 3 Volumes. Great commercials featuring Skelgas natural gas, a 57 piece Dinnerware set and Captain Midnight Bicycle Tires were offered by the Skelly Oil company.
Captain Midnight has never sounded better thanks to the Radio Archives audio engineering team. Captain Midnight, Volume 2, The Perada Treasure is available now!

Looting, maiming, slaughtering, El Gaucho launched his colossal plot to unite the Underworld — to make himself King of America! No torture was too cruel for him to employ; no deed too bloody; no life too precious, except his own. Richard Wentworth — the Spider, who exacts justice when the Law fails — realized he alone could save America from wanton butchery, in spite of the grim reward posted for his head — its own weight in the purest gold!

Wentworth's best friend, Commissioner Stanley Kirkpatrick, pointedly informed him on one blunt occasion that he would send Richard Wentworth to the death house if positive proof that the wealthy criminologist was really the Spider ever came into his hands. Here lies the genius of Norvell Page’s Spider. Wentworth had a secret identity, but hardly anyone was fooled by it! The white-hot relationships between the cast of characters were mature, even modern by our standards. This while he battled supercriminals such as the Fly, Iron Man and the Bat-Man.
Once, during a respite in a typical blood-and-screaming-bullets carnage of urban combat, Police Commissioner Kirkpatrick ticked off a long list of suspects. Wentworth blurted out this self-revealing truth. “I’m suspicious of everyone,” he admitted, “even of myself sometimes.” And well he should be. For Richard Wentworth was an undiagnosed manic-depressive—if not paranoid schizophrenic—subject to violent mood swings, climbing to unutterable heights of exultation in one scene, then crashing into the blackest depths of despair the next. When the Spider-madness came over him, he might pick up his treasured Stradivarius violin and launch into a night-long serenade to soul-searching. Or, he might putty up his face, don black hat and cape, go out Spidering.…

This thrilling Spider audiobook features acclaimed voice talent Nick Santa Maria, who has made the Spider his own! King of the Red Killers originally published in The Spider magazine, September, 1935.

Out of war-torn skies soars…G-8 and His Battle Aces! The greatest combat pilot of the War to End All Wars, G-8’s true name was stricken from all official records. Flying a supercharged warplane, backed by his wild wingmen, Bull Martin and Nippy Weston, G-8 fought the most horrific foes the Kaiser could throw at him.

Patrol of the Cloud Crusher, a particularly wild tale torn from the June, 1936 issue. Hogan outdoes himself by pitting his hero against an astounding threat—titanic disembodied hands reach out of the clouds to ensnare and crush Allied aircraft! Even the Master Spy is baffled.

It begins with a ghostly hand that snatched an important clue and vanished! If that wasn't baffling enough, a patrol flying past a giant cloud encountered a monster arm whose crushing fingers destroyed their warplanes.

Taking to the skies, G-8 rushes to investigate the so-called Hand of Providence that had seemingly taken the German side in the war. But it was one thing to fly into that hell cloud. Quite another to survive the encounter!

When the Flying Spy and his Battle Aces take on the challenge of the Patrol of the Cloud Crusher, will they return––or will their own aircraft be pulverized by the seemingly supernatural power? Herr Doctor Kreuger strikes again!

Nick Santa Maria narrates this ripping yarn of World War I air-to-air combat with his usual mastery.

Just got my latest Radio Archives order in the mail and decided to immediately treat myself to some great Old-Time Radio drama. My only problem was choosing which of the three sets I ordered to listen to first. I finally picked "Dead of Night" & "A Shipment of Mute Fate" from ESCAPE Volume 3 and settled down to give myself a good case of the heebie-jeebies!
Once again I am amazed by the clarity of sound on these CDs. Bravo! You do a beautiful job of restoring these programs and making them sound better than ever. I want to thank everyone at Radio Archives for your commitment to quality.
