Last up.... the ORIGINAL Blue Beetle - or perhaps we should say Blue Beetle Version 1.0. as distinct from the Steve Ditko/Ted Kord Blue Beetle (2.0) or the DC revamp of same (2.1), or indeed whatever abomination those creeps in New York are doing now.... . Frank Lovejoy plays Dan Garrett, cop turned crime-fighter in these radio shows that ran twice a week as 2 parters (a la the Batman TV show). These are edited together, but the first episode is a really nice tasty file size (20+MB). See you next week......

It's NOT "So Long & Thanks For All The Fish"...OK?

Thanks for all the kind words - and to any of you that are concerned 'bout me pulling the plug... well, lets just say (to continue the metaphor) that I need to recharge my batteries. Regular service WILL resume at some point in the future... anyway, here's a nice repost of DC Horror covers.....
I'll be back as sooner or later with more coolness!
