    J. Cool here and “To Tell The Truth” I want you readers to know that Bud Collyer also played the part of “SUPERMAN” when Superman began it’s run on radio waaaay back on Feb. 12th 1940. Superman comic #1 was issued in 1938 and if you are lucky enough to have one of those flying…er…lying around the house, it is worth upwards of a cool million!
