About this Old Time Radio Show

Don Winslow of the Navy
Juvenile Adventure serial (1942)

Based on the newspaper comic strip of the same name, Don Winslow Of the Navy was a serial filled with slam-bang wartime action. Don was in the Coast Guard in some adventures, but Navy Intelligence officer Don Winslow squared off against enemies in this radio serial, and since he was in intelligence work, that meant spies and really neat advanced military hardware, like mini-subs.

Don Winslow novel coverJuvenile adventure got much more serious during World War II, when the kid's adventure shows such as Superman, Green Hornet, and Hop Harrigan went to war along with America's men and women. But since Don Winslow was already in the armed forces, he didn't have to force the issue of fighting the enemies of the nation. Like many of the old time radio shows of that time, even the kid's serials, Don Winslow is truly evocative of those dark days of WW II.

The character was also the star of his own Universal movie serial series and several Little Big Books.

Don's buddy on board, Lt. Red Pennington, also does yeoman's duty as pitchman for Post Toasties, and his appeals to all the little "ship mates" to down a great bowl of Post Toasties are great fun, too.

For more juvenile (and adults who love these shows) adventure, click on Speed Gibson, Blue Beetle, Buck Rogers, Captain Midnight, Green Hornet, Dick Tracy, Terry and the Pirates and the big classic show of all the juvenile serials, Superman. Though not serials, Jungle Jim's adventures are thrilling, as are Tarzan, and all the outdoor adventure shows like The Cisco Kid, Sgt. Preston of the Yukon and Mark Trail.

This collection is also included as a component of the the updated World War II Collection.
