ADVENTURE AHEAD

Radio Drama Podcasts

In 1944, NBC wanted a show for younger audiences, not for little kids, but more for those coming of age. That was the impetus for this old time radio great,Adventure Ahead. Although Adventure Ahead was intended for all audiences, it was geared for young men. All of the plots were from famous adventure fiction writers, and they all starred or were intended for boys. Some of the well known writers were Daniel Defoe, Steven Vincent Benet, and Waldo Fleming. The stories and plots were adventures that any red blooded American boy could only dream of. For example, one of the stories, 'Inside The FBI' which gives a good guided tour of the inner workings of that much admired institution, and by the way with J. Edgar Hoover's blessing, as Hoover was a firm believer in molding America's youth.
