1st STOP : The Adventures of Superman Radio Show episodes #1424-1426, “The Disappearance of Clark Kent,” ep 10-12. Jimmy Olsen receives an envelope from Clark Kent that state Kent is leaving, and he may never see Jimmy ever again.

It has been one week since Jimmy and the others read the mysterious letter from Clark. There is no news of his whereabouts until Doctor John Millicent, who had helped Superman in finding a way to detect Kryptonite and the Atom Man, calls Perry. He knows everything about Clark Kent’s disappearance. Unfortunately, according to Millicent, Kent may possibly be dead.

At a logging camp near the Big Beaver River up north that is owned by Walter Bartlett - a friend of Perry White’s, there has been some trouble. The loggers in the camp believe that its troubles are being caused by something called the White Plague. Any lumberjack that cuts down a tree whose roots are covered with snow will suffer the vengeance of the White Plague is the legend. Clark Kent and Jimmy Olsen are now at the logging camp for a working vacation.

The conclusion of the horrific and quite scary The White Plague! Good riddance, Plague! You disturbed me well!

Oh this looks like fun! I’m always listening to these shows alone on the road and stuff, so it’ll be interesting to listen to them with other people (that whooshing sound they use for flying sounds a million times more horrific on my car speakers for some reason, I swear it’s gonna make my eardrums melt one of these days)

When I was preparing the recordings I deliberately reduced the sound of one of the whooshes between episodes LOL. You’ll see I do a tad of editing since as you know the commercials tend to be wildly repetitive day to day with these. I keep one or 2 of the commercials per YouTube presentation, but not all. I do chop off some of the intros and endings as each Youtube video is two or three daily radio shows in a row. But I do retain some of the very interesting commercials, especially for the late 1946 episodes where strangely commercials appear after the usual branding ending part.

Oh snapadoodle! I’ve literally never heard the radio show with the commercials still in it, all the ones I’ve found have them cut out. Now I’m kinda excited to hear what kind of old timey commericals played during Superman.

If you have time try out the first few minutes of the YouTube link.

The White Plague doesn’t have any commercials from the pre Kellogg time which is too bad. We could all use a break from all the violence in the story LOL.

Looking forward to this! What’s been going on in the recent Superman comics? I haven’t bought a Superman comic since at least February or March.

I recommend The Last Days of Lex Luthor, it’s been pretty epic so far.
