The Superman Radio Show
Episodes From the First Season, 1940
"Faster than an airplane, more powerful than a locomotive, impervious to bullets!"
"Up in the sky - look!"
"It's a giant bird!"
"It's a plane!"
"And now, Superman - a being no larger than an ordinary man but possessed of powers and abilities never before realized on Earth: able to leap into the air an eighth of a mile at a single bound, hurtle a 20-story building with ease, race a high-powered bullet to its target, lift tremendous weights and rend solid steel in his bare hands as though it were paper. Superman - a strange visitor from a distant planet: champion of the oppressed, physical marvel extraordinary who has sworn to devote his existence on Earth to helping those in need!"
With those immortalized words, so began the radio adventures of Superman. Here are gathered the first sixteen episodes of the most popular show in the Radio's Golden Age in Apple Qucktime format. Click here to download the free Quicktime player.
