From Old time Science Fiction Radio Show - 2000 Plus
From its earliest time, radio had always been interested in science fiction. The depression years during which dramatic radio would get its first wind offered escape in the form of foreign or strange other places or worlds. Everything was either black or white with little room for gray.
With some exceptions, radio took its cue from the pulps and the comics when it turned to dramatic science fiction. With a few exceptions, science fiction was still in its infancy getting its content from the fantastic rather than the scientific. Pulps such as Air Wonder and Amazing Stories offered the kind of dramatic material from which radio developed its plays. Characters leapt from the Sunday comics into the living rooms of many a radio listener. It is not coincidental that radio pioneer Hugo Gernsback was also considered the father of science fiction as well as one of the first publishers in 1926 of a science fiction magazine. His Amazing Stories magazine opened up new worlds for youngsters and radio carried on that tradition fleshing out the characters that appeared in the stories.
