Buck Rodgers Origin Story

Radio America show

Summary: Buck Rogers was a comic strip that appeared in the America's newspapers, so it was a natural for radio action, too. It had several time slots and sponsors on radio during the 1930's, and the shows from 1938-39, running on Mutual, re-tell our hero's beginnings to get us kids ready for action as Buck blasts off on more exciting space adventures in the incredible future of the 25th Century. After his 1930's adventures, Buck Rogers was "lost in space" until a return to Earth radio in 1947. Many actors played the parts throughout the decades.
