"Kellogg's, Pep, the Super delicious cereal presents-"'The Adventures of Superman.' Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a bound..." The openings and closings to radio programs of all types, from comedies (Blondie, The Jack Benny Program, Lum and Abner) to mysteries (Inner Sanctum Mysteries, The Black Chapel) to game shows (Can You Top This?, Truth or Consequences) to serials (Second Husband, Bachelor's Children) to crime dramas (The Falcon, Eno Crime Clues, The Green Hornet, Mr. and Mrs. North) to westerns (Gunsmoke, Wild Bill Hickok, Hawk Larabee) that were aired between 1931 and 1972, are included in this work. The programs are listed alphabetically, and each entry has a brief introductory paragraph that provides information about the storyline, principal cast, sponsors and air dates. Commercials have been included if the programs were under regular sponsorship. Also included are an index and three appendices (sponsors, slogans and jingles and World War II announcements).
