The class can look at Lightning Storm Shadow, but they can not touch, no matter what Ms. Margot Lane says.

My mother loved to listen to The Shadow on the radio.

One day she went to see the radio show performed.

She was very disappointed.

She said it was just people standing around the microphone and a guy using stuff to make the various sound effects, not at all what she expected to see.

Is this The Shadow series that advertised Blue Coal during its ad breaks?

When I was a kid, my mom had a set of audio tapes from The Shadow that I listened to constantly. While I loved the show itself, I dug the Blue Coal ads, too.

IDK why, really. Maybe it was the pop and hiss of the old audio combined with the narrator’s voice that did it for me? :man_shrugging:

“Friend, is your home prepared for the coming winter? With Blue Coal, it will be. Yes, that’s Blue Coal. Ask for it by name.”

Yes this is the Orsen Wells Shadow series that featured ads by Blue Coal that seems so alien now.

I kept at least one of the ads for us to listen to. Part of what I do with these curated listenings is to remove many of the ads since that could become very tedious and leave us with less episodes per evening to listen to.

I guess since this isn’t in the WAL category my notification settings didn’t pick it up as “Watching” and I only had the “Normal” alerts on it.

it seems to be in WAL in my version. ah well.

I had to again turn off “Restricted Mode” in Youtube to access this tonight.
