On this episode of the RAS we have cannibals and not of the fine young kind. They don’t want to meet you, they want to eat you. Our story is actually a retelling of the Daniel Defoe classic Robinson Crusoe. It comes from the OTR series Adventure Ahead. This was a brilliant summer feature for 1944. The series comprised of fourteen stirring adventure novels from America's greatest fiction authors. Other stories included:  The talking Drums, The Greenmantle and Inside the FBI. The show was billed as famous stories for young people.  In my opinion they missed the mark on this on an actually created excellent adaptations of classic stories for the elder and child in us all. What you will hear is a condensed version of the Robinson Crusoe story, but it has more than enough meat to make it worth a spin.  The show first aired on September 2, 1944.
