For over 50 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.
