Episode 11: Murder for Profit

After some potentially exciting news, Jay returns to dust off two more episodes of the classic 1940 radio series The Blue Beetle. The radio series chronicled the exploits of Dan Garrett, a rookie patrolman who, by wearing bullet-proof blue chain mail, transformed himself into the mysterious Blue Beetle, a daring crusader for justice.

The Blue Beetle was created by Charles Nicholas. The character made his first appearance in August of 1939 in the comic book Mystery Men #1, published by Fox Features Syndicate.

The Blue Beetle radio serial aired from May 15, 1940 to September 13, 1940 as a CBS 30 minute syndicated series. Actor Frank Lovejoy provided the voice of the Blue Beetle for the first thirteen episodes.
