Debuting on March 12, 1940, the exciting radio serial was an instant hit. Starring Clayton "Bud" Collyer in the dual roles of Superman and Clark Kent, this initial nine-episode sequence tells the story of the destruction of Krypton and the Man of Steel's arrival on Earth. It features the very first appearances anywhere of Lois Lane, Perry White, and the Daily Planet, and introduces two recurring arch-enemies: the Wolf and the Yellow Mask.
The Adventures of Superman was a radio mainstay until its final episode in March 1951. In all, "Bud" Collyer played his most famous role in more than 2,000 episodes.

"The long-running adventure serial...was one of the hallmarks of the Golden Age of radio....Superman was never able to fly as high on television as he had for an adventure-filled decade in radio's theater of the imagination." (Anthony Tollin, "Superman on Radio")
This old radio program was thouroughly enjoyable! It was fun for me to be able to relive a radio drama as they had used to be performed in the days of my parents with my young son. A wonderful blend of time and technology. Thanks for this opprotunity!
I absolutely love my audible account, makes its from enjoying a book to loving the stories found in the books. Do forgive my errors in the reviews i do have dyslexia but i will share my love with everyone
Everyone knows who Superman is. they make movies and cartoons to go with his comics. the best part of this is your imagination is at work. each person individually sees what they want to see as the cast of this great show only gives you basic ideas for what he is doing. we see the speed he can fly. we imagine how superman sees in the dark (me i personally envision night vision goggle mode) and we sore around the world beside our childhood hero
The only down side is right now there is only four volumes, four adventures of the superman story. the show ran almost every day for 11 years, if Audible can get more of this classic show i would love to buy more.
