Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810822709, Hardcover)

In the early years of radio broadcasting, an immensely popular type of programming was that aimed at children, especially the "thriller dramas." This book gives an overview of children's radio programming, the accompanying parental protests, and the possible effects of listening to the "blood and thunder," as well as a look at life in the radio era. Boemer describes 47 programs, all broadcast nationally from 1929 through 1956, including well-known ones such as The Lone Ranger and The Adventures of Superman and some rather obscure ones, with plot descriptions and excerpts from individual episodes.
