I love The Shadow!
As a kid I discovered Old Time Radio via nightly airings of CBS MYSTERY THEATER on a station in Boston-- each night at 11pm or so an episode would be on and they were generally pretty good. Around the same time Pyramid Books was putting out reprints of the old Shadow Pulps with some really amazing Jim Steranko covers to make them feel fresh.
DC Comics also put out a Shadow comic book which began with illustrations by the brilliant Mike Kaluta-- I'm not sure I read those but I think I did.
Anyway, I soon discovered The Shadow Radio Show and I used to buy the episodes on Audio Tape because back in the days when dinosaurs walked the Earth and the New York Times was still a newspaper that was the only way you could hear them.
Well, today all that's changed, you can listen to them online or collect them as MP3 files. I like to listen to Old Time Radio while I'm working-- and I even have a vintage style radio that picks up Bluetooth so I can recreate listening like they did in the olden days.
Recently, and by recently I mean 2008, they discovered a handful of episodes of The Shadow that were thought to be lost. I now have something like 500 episodes of the show and although it's a bit melodramatic it's a solid show.
The newly found episodes are mostly from Orson Wells run on the show in 1937 and 1938 when he was just starting out-- and he's great of course.
