Something I threw together, with a little vocal help from a friend.

That really brings back some memories... I used to watch the original show. But this is a very nice twist, and well done.

That show was on TV from 52 to 58, and the world has definitely changed in some very nice ways since the 50's. If only R5's version had been the show at that time.

Wow, that was amazing! I watched the show growing up not realizing that it was in reruns. I think I was 7 when I found out that "Superman" was dead and the show started before I was born.

It really would be neat to see a show set in the 50s.

Agent Carter tried some of that-but it never quite got the feel of 50s TV, with its kind off very specific beats.

If you want to go Really way back, I remember listening to the Superman RADIO shows before we got our first TV. We had this giant (or so it seemed to me) radio that sat on the floor and had these sides that stuck out a bit to create a little space underneath that I could curl up in, wearing my pajamas with feet in them, my back against the fabric that covered the big speaker. I felt like I was inside the show.

I’d curl up in there and listen to Superman.

When we got our first used, tiny, mostly round screen B&W TV in 52 or 53, with really crappy sound compared to the AM radio, Superman was on TV. That was the first time I discovered that the images of my imagination were way better than TV. Superman looked nothing like what I’d imagined. (I’d never seen a comic book at that age, so all I had was my imagination.)

TV and movies have usually disappointed me since, at least regarding anything I’d read first.

So...Radio serial shows ruined me for TV serials before I ever saw TV. I have now lived through both the Pre-TV and Pre-Internet eras. I suppose this now the Pre-VR/AI era now.

Some of you someday might think back to the old TV and Movie era with fondness as you immerse youself in a realistic VR kind of quasi-holodeck experience, and talk fondly of days when you actually had to use your own imagination.

Some of you will even fondly remember written stories. My God, how primitive!

I remember falling asleep listening to Dodger games on my mom's old "portable" AM radio. It was all wood and tubes with great sound. It was portable because you could carry it from room to room and plug it in. Great times listening to Vin Scully. He could paint a picture with words better than anyone else.

Yup... by the final days of radio, just before TV became ubiquitous, the announcers and serial stories and so forth were absolutely incredible. They'd been improving and learning how to stage an audible-only show since the invention and broadcast of AM radio, which has to go back to the 20's, I'd guess.

TV at first was pretty poor, but the visuals made up for most of it (for most people anyway).

But I don't think sports were televised well at all at first. Audio-only broadcasters like Vic Scully made the game seem so much more alive than TV could, At least at first. He broadcast for people who went to games frequently enough to have a very good mental image of the stadium. He knew how to inject excitement and get you up out of your seat, even if you were sitting at the kitchen table.

Ancient history...
