One of the most memorable radio programs, in its’ heyday, was The Shadow Knows, a drama that began as a pulp magazine series, then graduated to radio in the early 1930’s. The principle character was Lamont Cranston, and his female companion, Margot Lane. He opened each drama with, “Who knows what lurks in the hearts of men…The Shadow knows.” He battled crime and evil doers with his hypnotic power to cloud men’s minds, rendering them unable to see him. Everyone knew it wasn’t his shadow, but the master sleuth behind it. It spanned nearly sixteen years on the air waves, until 1954, when it was turned into a TV drama. However, it never caught fire as the radio show had earlier. It was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1989.
