by Martin H. Grams, jr.

OTR Publishing, LLC, Churchville, MD. 2011. Trade paperback. 831 pages. (6 X 9). Introduction by Martin Grams. This is one of those books that you might feel the author provided too much information. If you like The Shadow you can find just about everything about the development of the radio program through the 30s and 40s. There are probably hundreds of little facts and newspaper ads about the program. Just about anyone connected with the radio show is examined in great detail. More than 704 of the episodes are examined with listings of the performers and with detail of the plots. Recommended for any fan of “The Shadow” radio program.
