Those who are old enough to remember listening to Old-Time Radio may often have wondered what would happen if characters from one show met characters from another. Such incidents would be 'crossovers,' and the theme of this volume is such events. The adventure serials such as Jack Armstrong, Sky King, and The Air Adventures of Jimmie Allen all had heroes that younger listeners identified with. The pairings are often whimsical, such as when The Whistler meets The Mysterious Traveler, both hosts of scary-story broadcasts. Usually, only one crossover character founds him- or herself in the world of the other. However, in the lead novella, Jack Armstrong (the All-American Boy) meets not only Tom Mix, but also Nick Carter (Master Detective). New listeners, hearing recordings of the older radio shows, may have as much fun as those who heard the shows when brioadcast. Seeing how the authors handled the interaction of the great radio personalities makes this a particularly interesting volume.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
