Radio Spirits presents The Shadow, in 18 digitally remastered episodes of the series’ eeriest exploits. You will join The Shadow, goaded by ghosts and vexed by snakes, as he battles strange and supposedly supernatural foes.
Orson Welles, Bill Johnstone and Bret Morrison each star in the title role, staving off the forces of voodoo and an onslaught of the occult. Malevolent creatures also stalk co-stars Agnes Moorehead, Margot Stevenson, Marjorie Andersen and Grace Matthews, all playing the role of The Shadow’s lovely companion Margot Lane. Your companion through these preternatural perils will be a Program Guide by radio historian William Nadel with photographs and background information about the shows.
Fall under the spell of two newly discovered episodes of The Shadow – “The Mark of the Bat” and “The Witch Drums”, (both starring Orson Welles). These episodes are available here to the public for the first time since their original broadcast dates. Listen to the sinister laugh and discover why “The weed of crime bears bitter fruit, crime does not pay!” TM
