Captain Midnight was an aviation adventure fantasy that gained notoriety during the late 1930’s. Written by Robert M. Burtt and Willfred G. Moore, this series was initially broadcasted over the WGN network in Chicago and sponsored by the Skelly Oil Company. The show caught the eye of executives at Ovaltine, and they took this old time radio program to Mutual Network in order to reach a wider market. What started off as a simple narration of a fictional World War I hero named Captain Jim “Red” Albright (portrayed by Bill Bouchey on WGN and later by Ed Prentiss on Mutual) soon morphed into something much bigger than anyone could have ever anticipated. A historic icon was born in the golden age of radio-- the masked crusader, “Captain Midnight”. Before long, millions were avidly following the exploits of the secret agent and his band of merry followers that took each listener to exotic places around the globe. From aerial dogfights to shadowing the slums of the underworld, Captain Midnight together with the ever-faithful Chuck Ramsey and Patsy Donovan (who was later replaced by Joyce Ryan) gave chase to evil-doers and brought them to justice. In a time that was rife with the smell of gunpowder and the threat of war, this old radio show injected a sense of levity and normalcy to the populace.
