Based on what is published in the weekly paper, The Comic Weekly Man entertains us with a dramatized reading of the Sunday comics, complete with sound effects and music. Young and old alike would follow along with the print copy in hand.
When you can hear these shows on our live radio station.
Comic Weekly Man aired from 1947 to 1954 and was a show where the Comic Weekly Man would read the Sunday comics in a dramatic fashion, complete with music and sound effects as well. Adults and children of all ages would tune in to hear the show and to enjoy the antics of the Comic Weekly Man. He read from such strips as Blondie, Beetle Bailey, Hi and Lois, and many, many others.
The man himself was never credited on the program but in fact was busy radio actor Lon Clark (1912-1998) who is probably best-known for playing the lead in the popular "NICK CARTER, MASTER DETECTIVE" radio show as well as appearing in everything from "LIGHTS OUT" to "THE MARCH OF TIME".
The following is a listing of the shows that will be played on WELF-NPC Radio. Each week we will feature a new show from the list under the heading of show listed above. We will continue to rotate through this list until we remove the show from the radio station.
