One of the most popular radio shows in history, "The Shadow" went on the air in August of 1930. Here is a select array of 80 shows from 1937 to  1948 .  It began on CBS Radio and later moved to Mutual Radio Network and was sponsored by Blue Coal.

A figure never seen, only heard, the Shadow was an invincible crime fighter. He possessed many gifts which enabled him to overcome any enemy. Besides his tremendous strength, he could defy gravity, speak any language, unravel any code, and become invisible with his famous ability to "cloud men's minds."

The title character was given the power to "cloud men's minds so they cannot see him". Lamont was given a leading lady, named Margo Lane (played by Agnes Moorehead), who knew the true identity of The Shadow.

Many actors and actresses would assume the roles of The Shadow/Lamont Cranston and Margo Lane over the years. The main ones were: Orson Welles (1937-1938), Bill Johnstone (1938-1943), John Archer (1944-1945), Bret Morrison (1943-1944, 1945-1954), Agnes Moorehead (1937-1940), Majorie Anderson (1940-1944), Grace Matthews (1946-1949), and Gertrude Warner (1949-1954). Other actors to play the roles included Kenny Delmar, Steve Courtleigh, Margot Stevenson, Margot Anderson, Jeanette Nolan, Marion Sharkley, Laura Mae Carpenter, and Lesley Woods.

Who knows what evil lurks in the  hearts of men?  The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay. The shadow knows.
