Biography

RADIO,PULP,COMICS.

One of old-time radio’s longest-running series, The Shadow began as a sales ploy to improve the reputation of Detective Story Magazine in 1930. Rapidly outshining the anthology publication and its radio franchise, the sinister character was given his own magazine in 1931, made a narrator of various CBS and NBC series in the early ’30s, and eventually spun off into his own MBS program in 1937. During the course of the show’s 17-year run, the character was voiced by Orson Welles, Bill Johnstone, Bret Morrison, John Archer and Steve Courtleigh.
