The Green Hornet debuted on a Detroit station, WXYZ, on January 31, 1936, and later aired on the Mutual and ABC Blue networks until its final broadcast on December 5, 1952. The masked crime fighter was the secret identity of newspaper publisher Britt Reid, who relied on his valet, Kato, and a supercharged roadster, the Black Beauty. Al Hodge portrayed The Green Hornet during the series' first seven seasons, followed by Donovan Faust, Robert Hall, and Jack McCarthy. The series was created by the same team that brought The Lone Ranger to the air.

"Radio's most popular juvenile adventure program." (James S. Olson, Historical Dictionary of the 1950s)
It was a great story about the discovery of the secret identity of the Green Hornet! and I enjoyed the follow ups in the next two episodes as well.
The following two episodes: Graft Crosses a Bridge (11/4/1947) and Too Hot to Handle (11/11/1947) Both are part of the historical links in the history of the Green Hornet!
The one where Britt realizes that Linda was evesdropping.
The ending, what a cliff-hanger!
This story is a wonderfully presented piece from Radio Spirits and you should really consider getting the episodes Graft Crosses a Bridge (11/4/1947) and Too Hot to Handle (11/11/1947) all together make a larger fantastic story!!
