Publisher's Summary

This episode of The Green Hornet first aired on May 5, 1938.

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 crimefighter 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.

    Story
    "The Green Hornet Strikes Again."

    I love the Green Hornet. Next to the Shadow they are some of the greatest radio programs ever produced. A sequel to the Lone Ranger, has the great nephew of the Ranger doning a mask to fight crime. This radio program has spawned movie serials, comic books, a tv show staring Bruce Lee, and a movie a few years ago. The Green Hornet is still going strong may it go on forever.
