Axis of Evil meets the Masked AvengerJan. 24 2011

Finally, Radio Spirits put out a box set of radio shows worthy of buying. Almost every episode was formerly a 'lost' episode, which means you are getting your money's worth. And consecutive episodes, too, which makes it easier for us collectors to fill in the gaps. Most of these episodes deal with Kato and the Green Hornet's adventures against foreign spies, black market racketeers, a dentist who steals the gold from people's fillings, and enough adventures to make one wonder just how many Japanese spies were walking about the streets during World War II. My favorite, and will probably be your favorite too, is the "Madhouse Adventure."
The booklet that accompanied the set, unlike booklets that accompany other Radio Spirits products, finally does justice. Background information is fascinating. Of course, Radio Spirits turned to experts who know the subject since they wrote a book about it. Elizabeth McLeod, for example, wrote the book on "Amos and Andy" so it seems fitting she write the booklets for "Amos and Andy" sets. Always have the liner notes written by the folks who know their subject. Lost shows and great booklet. This is how a company gets to be at the top of their game.
