Tag Archives: George W. Trendle
George W. Trendle in 1932 was a daring fellow in his way, daring enough to decide against continuing his Detroit station WXYZ’s CBS affiliation and try it as an independent operation in 1932. Just about everyone in the know thought Trendle was half out of his mind. Then, come January 1933, Trendle premiered a horse opera that nobody, including perhaps Trendle himself, could have predicted would become a radio and national institution.
In 2009, Dyanmite Entertainment will begin a series of comic books centered around the Green Hornet, the underground crime fighter born in old-time radio in 1936. Issue number nine matched the Hornet against the legendary FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. A nice irony, that, because it was long assumed that Hoover himself prompted a change in The Green Hornet‘s radio introduction.
