    great stuff, pcp as usual. I read, I believe in dukes book he had to mix chocolate milk with the ovaltine to drink it. My younger brothers and sisters couldn't get enough. My mom could never get me to drink it, I preferred coca- cola. What an argument that was! battlin bake, the dodger dynamo

      We kids would never miss Captain Midnight on the RADIO, 5:45 p.m., Monday THROUGH Friday. What ever happened to Chuck and Joyce and Icky Mudd and the nefarious Ivan Shark? Gone with the snows of yesterday.

              Good call, musial6, but I remember the afternoon radio lineup this way:

              5:00 pm - Hop Harrigan
              5:15 pm - Superman
              5:30 pm - CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT
              5:45 pm - Tom Mix

              One after the other for a solid hour of adventure...and all on WOR.

              OVALTINE was Captain Midnight's sponsor, and RALSTON CEREAL brought us Tom Mix. But I need help with the Harrigan and Superman sponsors.

                Grape Nuts Flakes sponsored Hop Harrigan while Kellogg's paid Superman's bills.

                Hop actually aired on WJZ in the first few years. Broadcast times varied from season to season. Superman actually performed in each of the quarter-hour slots.

                  P.S.
                  Did you know that Bud Collyer, the great game-show maestro, was the voice of Superman on the radio? He was brilliant at distinguishing between the voice of Clark Kent and that of Superman.

                    Thanks for the sponsor and programming info, musial6.

                    Further research confirms that Hop started on WJZ and that air times did, indeed, vary over the years.

                    (I guess at my age, the brain cells aren't firing as cleanly as they used to.)

                    But at least I did remember Bud Collyer! And Brace Beemer as The Lone Ranger.

                      I have some of those shows on CD as I collect Old Time Radio shows........And you're right...He had a great voice and when he became Superman his voice was deeper than his Clark Kent voice.

                      William Conrad was the voice of Matt Dillon on radio and he was upset he didnt get the TV role that Jim Arness got. The problem was that Conrad would have been bigger than his horse.

                        Another great radio voice was Jackson Beck, who narrated the Superman radio program. Let your mind go back to that time, and you can hear Beck speak the intro to the program, including the words, "a strange visitor from another planet."

                        Conrad had the BEST radio voice. He was also the narrator of The Fugitive on TV, and added much drama to that show.

                            Absolutely the BEST voice and I loved him in Cannon.......in his Lincoln Mark IV..........Great narration on the Fugitive.......one of my all-time fave shows.

                              Mine too. I wasn't able to see it when it was in its prime-time run, but I remember hearing my dad talk about it. Then when it came on the MSG and A&E networks in reruns, I became devoted to it. If I recall, there's one episode where Dr. Kimble allows himself a little respite by going out to the ballpark.
