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)
Absolutely, I love this series and I believe any fan of a continuing saga of a group of charaters would as well!!
The reference it made to an earlier adventure: "Racketeers in Gas Coupons"!
He is consistantly great to listen to as all the other actors are, he certainly contributes to the progression of each of the stories.
The mention of the earlier case of "Racketeers in Gas Coupons" episode.
This was a great follow up story and I truly enjoyed listening to it.
