We have seen both young and elderly sacrifice of their time and resources to come here and work to help give hope to these children.
Another Funny Page success that came to the radio for kids is Terry and the Pirates. Young Terry Lee is a " wide awake American Boy" in the Orient having adventures with his mentor Pat Ryan and a captivating cast of characters.
However, ratings began to slip after the war when there were fewer enemies to chase. Perhaps the greatest of the comic book heroes was Superman. Many elements that would become part of the Superman universe began on the radio, not in the comic pages. The Man of Steel's first encounter with Kryptonite happened on the radio.
The writers created this device so that the star, Bud Collyercould take some vacation time in the era before summer re-runs. One comic book hero to ride the cape-tails of Superman was The Blue Beetle The Beetle got his start as a rookie beat cop frustrated by the delays and red tape of police work.
He decides to take matters into his own hands by taking on a mask and acting as a vigilante, similar to The Green Hornet. Red Ryder was more than a nifty BB gun.
The cowboy was another successful comic strip that made the transition to radio. The strip by Fred Harmon began infeatured tall, no nonsense Red and his Indian ward, Little Beaver, and ran until The characters appeared in a movie serial beginning with Republic's The Adventures of Red Ryder in The program even managed to top The Lone Ranger in the ratings for a time, but sponsors dropped it after four months.
The original sponsor, Langendorf Bread, kept the show alive regionally until over the West Coast Don Lee network. InTrendle started discussing the potential of a Robin Hood-like character on the radio.
Since children would be the target audience, the character had to be wholesome, and violence kept to a minimum. A cowboy would fill the need for wholesomeness. Writer Striker came on board to flesh out the details of The Lone Ranger. The Masked Man was an immediate success; when a free pop-gun was offered to the first listeners to write in, the station received more than 25, replies.
InTrendle began work on a show that would show how one man could fight a corrupt political system. ByTrendle was ready to see if he could find success with another adventure program, and insisted that this time the hero should be a dog.
Not fancy dog like Lassie, but because it was to be an action adventure it had to be a working dog. Trendle was a notorious penny pincher. There is a rumor he kept an extra set of books showing that the station was constantly losing money, which he would show employees if they asked for a raise.
No extra fees would be attached to their use. We cannot promise that your kids will hurry home from school and finish their homework early so they can listen to these shows, but then we all may be surprised!
