Planet Man

(5 stars; 1 reviews)

Planet Man was an early 1950s syndicated juvenile science fiction serial. Its hero, Dantro, was an agent of the League of Planets. He is from Planeris Rex, headquarters of the League. The series was part of the science fiction rage, especially for kids, with programs like Tom Corbett, Space Cadet , and Space Patrol . Adults would have programs in the early 1950s such as Dimension X, Two Thousand Plus , and Tales of Tomorrow . Even series like Escape had some dallience in science fiction. This program is like a kids comic book, and should be enjoyed as such with great fun and much innocence about it. * * * These recordings are part of the Joe Hehn Memorial Collection. Mr. Hehn (1931-2020) was a pioneering collector of radio recordings when the hobby emerged in the 1960s. Digitizing his collection of reel tapes and discs is the effort of a wide range of North American volunteers, and includes assistance of some international collectors. The groups supporting this effort with their funds, time, technology and skills are the Old Time Radio Researchers and a small group of transcription disc preservationists who refer to themselves as the "The Knights of the Turning Table."
