Each show was started by a sweeping organ intro and a song introducing the Comic Weekly Man. Good dramatic reading of the scripts.....you gotta listen to a sample below. Then on to the meat of the comics. Please note the high quality of this series. A great find for the old time radio fan. Comic Weekly Man is one of those shows you want to listen to on a Sunday with a cup of joe in your hand!
In old time radio it is rare to find high quality shows. Comic Weekly Man is one of them. This is a high quality, high bit rate show. Most of the 109 episodes on this set are 128kbps. Sometimes this bit rate can be misleading, when talking MP3 CDs in old time radio, quality is determined by original source. This gem of a show is from a HQ source, and encoded in a high bit rate. So Comic Weekly Man is one of those pleasant 'finds' in old time radio. This is a 5 disc MP3 CD set, with 109 high quality episodes, each being about 30 minutes long.
