IDS 505 IDS Summer Rep Labor Day Special 2016 Captain Midnight

To conclude this year’s IDS Summer Rep, the IDS offers you the premier Ovaltine episode of an Old Time Radio series entitled, Captain Midnight.

According to Generic Radio Workshop:

Where would Ovaltine be without Captain Midnight and the many secret decoder premiums that World War II-era boys and girls (but especially boys) anxiously sent in for? In 1939 a syndicated series, Captain Midnight and his Secret Squadron quickly moved to the Mutual network in 15 minute weekday episodes where it continued for nearly a decade. In the great tradition of secretive radio heroes, Midnight was the secret identity of a World War I flying ace, engaged in a never-ending battle against master criminal Ivan Shark and aided by curiously youthful companions.

Captain Midnight made the transition to television in the mid 1950s.
