Presented by Radio Redux

Arguably the most famous introduction to a radio show ever—“Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!"—launches Radio Redux’s recreation of a “The Shadow” crime mystery drama.

One of the most popular adventure heroes of the 20th century, The Shadow has been featured on the radio and television and in pulp magazines, comic books, comic strips, serials, video games, and at least five films. The radio show’s famous introduction is now part of the American idiom, as is the closing line, "The weed of crime bears bitter fruit! Crime does not pay...The Shadow knows!" Both will occur in an episode titled “The Gibbering Things” in which The Shadow battles a bevy of evil creatures.

Also on the program is the charming radio classic, “My Client, Curley,” by the great radio dramatists Lucille Fletcher and Norman Corwin for the Columbia Workshop series, concerning a dancing caterpillar named Curley who becomes an international show biz sensation before nature intervenes.
