The Shadow Vol 1


Download file size is 397 megabytes

The Shadow was a hugely popular series throughout the world, and our recordings were adapted from American scripts by Reg Johnston and Bill Slessor during the 1950’s.

15 x 24 minute episodes: around 6 hours




Only 78 episodes were produced in Australia – largely due the national sponsor dropping out which is a story in its own right…

Apparently one evening when the General Manager of the Sponsor’s company went to his Club in Melbourne, someone came up to him and whispered “The Shadow knows”, and followed with The Shadow’s laugh.

This gentleman took great offence (thinking that he personally was being laughed at) and immediately cancelled the sponsorship. Most people today would regard this as proof that their advertising was working!

On this CD are 15 episodes – each being a self-contained story of around 24 minutes duration.
