Not sure if some of you are aware of this or not, but a lot of the classic serials from the 30s and 40s are now within public domain, meaning that anyone can play or watch them for free. I run my own serial blog and just today added a video with a link to a site where you can view a lot of these golden moments from a bygone time. PLUS! I also added in the sidebar of the same blog a music player loaded with a few old radio serials. What a great time to be a science fiction fan!
Here's the playlist I have loaded for the radio:
War of the Worlds radio broadcast by Orson Wells Death Stalks The Shadow The Laughing Corpse (eps. of The Shadow) Flash Gordon theme song Sherlock Holmes (eps. from Dec. 10, 1945) Green Hornet theme song The Further Adventures of Nick Danger by Firesign Theater Zorro theme musicThis message has been edited.

Lordshen, great stuff! I have been an OTR (old-time radio fan for years). There was a time when fans and collectors had to exchange tapes by mail, but the internet has revolutionised the whole business.
A great resource for more public domain stuff is archive.org - they have loads of old shows with a Bradbury connection, such as Suspense, Dimension X etc.

I couldn't find any Goon, however I DID find 5 episodes of Fibber McGee and Molly! While my blog and e-zine are geared towards science fiction-y things, I added one of the Fibber McGee and Molly episodes anyway. Let it not be said I don't provide for when asked!This message has been edited. Last edited by: LordShen,
