Saved From Oblivion – Dunninger (4/27/14)

28:16 – Welcome to another Saved from Oblivion!

Jimbo takes you into his own, hand-picked treasures of old-time radio. He tells you just a bit about the episode and then lets the show do the talking.  For brevitiy, each show will last 40 minutes or less.

Today’s show features a program called, Dunninger. Born Joseph Dunninger, this performer blazed a path few took: he was radio’s number one mentalist, seer, etc. Despite claiming to debunk spiritualism, he himself performed the same sleight of hand!

He was in league with Houdini and others and is said to be the model for The Shadow!  Hoo hoo hoo ha ha ha ha!

This episode comes from 1944.
