There was a time when Radio, NOT TV, was the truest form of entertainment. Take a good script, a few colorful voice actors, insert a few real-world sounds and POW!… you’ve got a vivid story full of excitement, drama and intrigue playing out in your minds eye. Nothing you see on TV or the theater can match power of your own imagination.
Don’t believe me? Well then, curl your knees up to your chest, shut your eyes, and check out this this fantastic (no pun intended) retro radio show that features a young Bill Murray reading the role of Human Torch alongside Stan Lee in a 1975 radio version of the Fantastic Four comics.
NOTE: This post was originally published June 1st 2012. With the Fantastic Four reboot hitting theaters this week, we thought we’d pull this gem from the NB vault.
The radio show ran a new episode a week for 10 weeks, and featured the Fantastic Four squaring off against classic foes such as- Super Skrull, Moleman and the Latvian Iron Man himself Doctor Doom.
The adventures of the Fantastic Four voiced by Stan Lee and Bill “fucking” Murray. Come on, admit it. That was awesome!
Man, radio was pretty rad back in the day.
You can listen to all 10 episodes HERE.
