The Buck Rogers radio show was the first science fiction program on radio. It
was broadcast four times weekly, Monday to Thursday evenings on the CBS
network. It soon gained a listening audience of 58,000 on over 23 stations all
over the country. The program aired for 15 years until 1947. Storylines were
similar to the comic strip with Buck finding himself in the 25th Century. Actors
Matt Crowley, Curtis Arnall, Carl Frank and John Larkin all voiced the lead
role at various times.

The radio series was produced and directed by Carlo De Angelo and later
by Jack Johnstone who later stated that the sound of the rockets was done
by using an air-conditioning vent.
