2009. It's a spinoff of the Jack Flanders stories, which began with ''[[http://www.zbs.org/index_new.php/store/product/the-fourth-tower-of-inverness-original-radio-version-mp3 The Fourth Tower of Inverness]]'' -- a 1972 adventure remembered by elder tropers through a haze of pot smoke in the college dorm.

Another memorable feature of radio dramas was [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_premium premium merchandising]], usually a tie-in to both the show and the sponsor's product. An entire plot thread could be built around use of the premium. One sent in three box tops and a dime, or the seal from under the Ovaltine lid, etc. ''LittleOrphanAnnie'''s Ovaltine shake-up mugs and ''Franchise/CaptainMidnight'' Code-O-Graph badges are some of the best known.[[note]]While there were plenty of rings being offered, most "Secret Decoder Rings" were actually badges with cipher disks. An actual decoder ring ''was'' offered on ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' in the 1960s. [[/note]] Premiums weren't limited to kids; soap operas offered Helen Trent Friendship Necklaces and Ma Perkins Cookbooks.
