Adventure! Who among us has not felt the thrill of that word? So begins the introduction to the Strange Adventures radio program from the beginning of the golden age of radio.
In the throes of the Great Depression, Strange Adventures offered relief from the troubles of everyday life by whisking listeners to faraway places where excitement beckoned and danger lurked around every corner. A barbershop quartet encouraged listeners to join them in the World Adventurers Club, where there was always some globetrotting explorer who had just returned from some thrilling adventure that he was willing to share.
