Hardeen on the air

I've done several posts about Houdini's many radio broadcasts (and bemoaned the fact that not a single recording seems to have survived). So for a change, here's news of a 1928 broadcast by Hardeen. His topic: Houdini, of course!

The Scranton Republican, June 25, 1928.

Hardeen was playing three days at the Capitol Theater in Scranton, Pennsylvania, when he gave this talk on June 25. Below is a terrific ad for that appearance.

The Times Tribune, June 25, 1928.

The good news is we do have a surviving Hardeen radio broadcast which you can listen to HERE.

  1. Wow! The shows in Scranton marked his return to the stage. Hardeen was using radio to promote his show. Too bad this interview wasn't preserved.
