For over fifty years, prizefighter Joe Palooka, his colorful manager Knobby Walsh, his girlfriend Ann Howe, and the many other characters that populated Ham Fisher's famous comic strip brought enjoyment to millions of devoted readers. In 1945, Joe's adventures came to radio in a daily series that briefly aired on local stations. In this collection, you'll enjoy five full hours of his rare and long-lost radio exploits, transferred from the original recordings and made available for the very first time since 1945. It's a fascinating glimpse into the forgotten history of an American icon whose reputation for patriotism, honesty, healthy living, and clean fighting entertained and inspired American youth.
