The Shadow


The old time radio show, The Shadow, came about to increase sales of the Detective Story Magazine. James LaCurto was the first narrator for the series, but when Frank Readick, Jr., took over the role, he gave it a new voice that thrilled the listeners. The first run of The Shadow was from 1930 until 1935. It returned in 1937 and this was the old time radio show that became a classic.

Orson Welles played Lamont Cranston who was the rich young man about town. Frank Readick would put a water glass beside his mouth, in order to get the echo effect during the reading of the infamous line, “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?”
