EPISODE DESCRIPTION
Invasion From Tiranna (Aired September 25, 1954)
The success of the TV show spawned a radio version, which ran for 129 episodes from October 1952 to March 1955. The same cast of actors performed on both shows. The writers, scripts, adventures and director were quite different in radio versus TV incarnations. Naturally, the series lacked the adult sophistication of such shows as X Minus One, which focused on adapting short fiction by notable genre names as Robert A. Heinlein and Ray Bradbury. But as a throwback to the sort of Golden Age space opera popularized in the 1930s, the days of science fiction's infancy, by pioneering magazine editor Hugo Gernsback, Space Patrol is prized by OTR collectors today as one of radio's most enjoyable adventures. THIS EPISODE: September 25, 1954. ABC network. "Invasion From Tiranna". Sponsored by: Ralston cereals (space periscope premium). The Space Patrolers land on a meteorite to investigate a wrecked spaceship and gain a new ally in the fight against Tyrrana. This is a network, sponsored version. Bela Kovacs, Dick Beals, Dick Tufeld (announcer), Ed Kemmer, Helen Mosser (executive producer), Ken Mayer, Larry Robertson (producer, director), Lou Houston (writer), Lyn Osborn, Mike Mosser (creator), Norman Jolley. 28:53. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
