BUCK ROGERS (Carl Frank) AND WILMA DEERING (Adele Ronson)

Three years after bringing science fiction to the world of comic strips, Buck
Rogers in the 25th Century
was brought to CBS radio on November 7, 1932. It
Originally aired from New York and broadcast four times weekly, initially at 7:15
P.M. and later moved to an earlier "children’s hour". Actors Matt Crowley and
Carl Frank (above) along with Curtis Arnall and John Larkin all voiced Buck
Rogers at various times. The beautiful and strong-willed Wilma Deering was
portrayed by Adele Ronson, and the brilliant scientist-inventor Dr. Huer
was played by Edgar Stehli.
