I haven't listened to a lot of the episodes yet, but what I have heard is hilarious. My favorite episode is # 21 "Chicken Man trapped in City Hall." rofl. I'm sure the "winged warrior" isn't everyone's cup of tea but his spoof of the superhero genre is great. Laughing

Ah yes, the adventures of the winged one. I actually remember when this aired on our local station. They used to run it twice a day, once in the a.m. and once in the p.m.. I've listened to a few here, I hope someone might have a set with better quality to donate here.

See you around the clubhouse.

Stephen King even mentions the Winged Warrior in his book "Danse Macabre" in the section about Old Radio. I gather he would listen to the old shows (back in the 50's) with his grandfather. I gather he had trouble understanding what his grandfather was saying (I believe he had few if any teeth and a thick beard), but they had a common love of the old radio programs on (I think) saturday evenings.

I used to listen to a Chicken Man show on Armed Forces Radio in Panama, during the 60s. It generally lasted about 2 minutes an episode and was hilarious. I'll never forget the geshtunkana-raygun.

Is this the same show? Were there more than one?
