    It's kind of too bad about the Green Lama radio show. Paul Frees played the character on radio, and he was a reliable voice actor who many may recognize for his later voiceover work in the 1950s and 1960s for Walt Disney, Walter Lantz, UPA, Rankin-Bass, Jay Ward, and Hanna-Barbera. However, in 1949 the pulp-style hero with extraordinary abilities was on the decline, and radio dumbed down the character until he was a pale shadow of his pulp and comic book incarnations. Here Jethro Dumont is just a man, a kind of independently wealthy freelance troubleshooter known to all as The Green Lama. No secret identity, no costume, and very little in the way of mystic powers. There is some lip service to "Om Mani Padmi Om", and a few references to Buddhism, but that's about it. Essentially he's been reduced to a detective with a colorful nickname.

    While only 4 of the original 11 episodes survive, there was another one, "The Case of the Dangerous Dog" (Episode No. 10) that was recreated using the original script and recorded by an old-time radio fan group at a convention.

    49-06-05 The Man Who Never Existed (Episode No. 1)
    49-06-26 The Million Dollar Chopsticks (Episode No. 4)
    49-07-03 The Last Dinosaur (Episode No. 5)
    49-08-21 The Adventure of the Perfect Prisoner (Episode No. 11)

I don't know if you're looking for any other OTR shows but I've got an extensive collection. 5 Green Hornet, 10 Lone Ranger, 3 Shadow and 3 Sherlock, 2 Tarzan and 1 Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon All are MP3 discs and that barely scratches the surface. Almost forgot the 7 Zorro shows on the Misc. Western disc.

    Note: Just finished updating my list and came up wit 9683 shows. Geez, didn't know I had that many. 60 some odd different shows. shows

    I listen to a lot of radio shows, kept a lot and flushed a lot, and over all I got now more than enough radio shows for one life time. The only radio shows I'm interested to find now are impossible ones to find from French Canada, "Un Homme Et Son Peche"; all I have and could find on the net and in libraries are segments, but not even one complete episode

    I compiled the segments into a single MP3 file which I posted on my page
