Retro Radio Memories: The Saint – “Monkey Business” (1959)

Retro Radio Memories 1
Welcome back to Retro Radio Memories! Today we are going to take just a small break from the Radio Adventures of Flash Gordon and focus on a hero more earthbound. This week we are giving a listen to the likes of the legendary Vincent Price as none other than that Gentleman of Crime, Simon Templar aka The Saint!

The longest-running radio incarnation of the Saint starred Vincent Price, who played the character in the series between 1947 and 1951 on three networks: CBS, Mutual and NBC. Like The Whistler, the program had an opening whistle theme with footsteps.

So get comfortable in your favorite chair and travel back to a simpler time and join us as we present Retro Radio Memories featuring The Saint in “Monkey Business”!
