Publisher's Summary

The Green Hornet and Kato return in this exciting collection of digitally remastered and restored radio adventures, working outside the law to battle kidnappers, rackets, fraud, and other sinister and nefarious enterprises of the criminal underworld.

Featured in these programs is Al Hodge, the first actor to play the role of millionaire newspaperman Britt Reid, alias The Green Hornet. Join Hodge - along with Raymond Toyo as Kato (and The Black Beauty!), Gilbert Shea as Mike Axford, and Lenore Allman as Miss Case - as he hunts the biggest of all game: public enemies that even the G-Men cannot reach.

The 20 episodes featured here are among the earliest known recordings to survive from the Al Hodge era. Sixteen of them (taken from the original transcription discs) have not been heard since their initial broadcast in 1939, and the remaining four are available for the first time in unedited form - complete, uncut, and straight from the original masters.

Episodes include: "Money Talks Too Loud" 06-20-39, "Pink Lemonade and Tan Bark" 06-22-39, "Bait for a Two Timer" 06-27-39, "Pavement Condemned" 06-29-39, "Put It on Ice" 07-04-39, "Disaster Rides the Rails" 07-06-39, "The Devil's Playground" 07-11-39, "War on the Waterfront" 07-18-39, "House and Home" 07-20-39, "Murder by Accident" 07-27-39, "Bait for a Burglar" 08-01-39, "A Racket in the Ring" 08-03-39, "The Lawyer Beats the Law" 08-08-39, "Lightning Strikes a Shakedown" 08-10-39, "Money in the Meter" 08-15-39, "A Racket Robs the Cradle" 08-17-39, "A Rake-Off on the Job" 08-22-39, "The House That Jack Built" 08-24-39, "Numbers Make a Racket" 08-29-39, "Ripe for the Taking" 09-05-39

Amazing Stories Each Better Than the Last!!

Would you listen to Green Hornet again? Why?

Absolutely, there are so many veried rackets busted in this collection, that it would be just as enjoyable to listen to them again in the future, which I most assuredly will!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Green Hornet?

Each episode had several memorable moments!

Which scene was your favorite?

The ones where the racketter learns he has been outsmarted by the Green Hornet.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The last scene of the final episode where the crooks learned they had been fooled out of all their rackets money.

Any additional comments?

Each episode was better than the last!
