Retro Radio Memories 1
Welcome to another installment of Retro Radio Memories. This week for your audible enjoyment we present the fourth chapter in what ended up being a 26 episode run for the Flash Gordon radio serial. The series was originally entitled The Amazing Interplanetary Adventures of Flash Gordon when it debuted over the airwaves back on April 22, 1935 and features the vocal talents of Gale Gordon as Flash himself with Maurice Franklin as Dr. Zarkov and Bruno Wick as Ming the Merciless.

The previous chapters can be found by following the links provided:
1) Flash Gordon on the Planet Mongo
2) Battling a Plant and an Earthman
3) Prison Ship

When we last left Flash and his friends after being tortured in the Hawk Men city they managed to escape but once again found themselves imprisoned and standing before King Vultan, the mighty ruler of the Hawk Men…but then a terrible tremor began to shake the city and the lights were extinguished before Dale Arden cried out in alarm!

Take a moment for yourself and pull up your favorite chair, turn down the lights and travel back to a simpler time with Retro Radio Memories as we join Flash Gordon and learn the answer to the question “Can Zarkov Save Hawk Mens City?”
