"Death Under The Chapel" (Sept 9, 1938)
Hello Pulp Friends!
As promised this week we are back with the radio episodes of The Shadow. Tonight: Death Under the Chapel.
After one of his student commits suicide, Professor Kalima (a former professor of Lamont Creston) is fired by the university where he teaches. The professor suffers from some kind of disability that has shriveled his limbs, so that he needs assistance to move around. In Lamont's words, the professor was a genius but apparently, being fired turned this genius into a criminal mastermind, because Kalima now is seeking revenge. His plan is to put a bomb under the chapel during a special event and blow up the building, killing everyone inside.
Lamont will investigate the case and his alter ego, The Shadow, will battle both the criminal mind of Kalima and his right arm, a giant deaf-mute who carries Kalima around.
Hope you guys enjoy the radio episode from the Archive.org
