The Spirit on the radio in DC (UPDATED)

As we've noted in the past, Pete Mullaney is going through the microfilm of the Washington Star, finding items of interest in the comics.

Pete's latest find is that the Star was planning on running the Spirit comic book insert, and advertised it with an ad for Mr. Mystic on May 27, 1940.

They followed that up on June 1, 1940 by announcing the Spirit radio show, which was apparently very rare.

Local writer Karl Schadow researched the show in 2012, after Ken Quattro asked for information about it. Thanks to Bruce Rosenberger for the links to these articles.

UPDATE: Pete found another announcement for Lady Luck from June 8th's front page.
