Welcome back, friends. To this special Holiday episode of the Retro Radio Memories podcast. One of course whose subject just so happens to be The Saint. The popular running radio series based on the character created by Leslie Charteris in 1928. The Saint or Simon Templar as his friends and close enemies call him. Is in fact a type of modern day Robin Hood – however he lives off his ‘good deeds’ too. What I am saying of course is that Simon makes sure these actions help to line his own coffers in the process.
While it is certainly true that we’ve shared an episode or two of The Saint on the podcast before. With the Holiday upon us, I felt it the perfect time to share a Seasonal offering. While The Saint radio series got it’s start in 1940, most fans feel that it was the NBC version that is best. Naturally it is hard to argue that fact as it feature Vincent Price as Simon Templar!
In our episode today, entitled Santa Claus is No Saint. Templar of course finds himself mixed up in a dangerous situation. Furthermore, one that involves a case of mistaken identity as well as a stolen necklace.
So settle in where it is warm, friends. Let the soothing electronic glow of your monitor or phone ease your worries away. And join us on Retro Radio Memories as we go on another caper with The Saint!
