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.

The character actors and the always well done music and sound effects combined with an excellent story!
The Green Hornet: Death and the Black Fedora! It too has a well played frame-up aspect to it!
Why the narrator of course! Seriously, Mike Axford as he was framed for murder.
Framed-Up and Double-Crossed!
A great listen, and as always, you can't go wrong with the Green Hornet!
