Dr.Roebling and the Voice Machine
Adventures of Superman Radio Serial - July
Lois returns to the serial as Clark finally winds his way back to Metropolis for an extra-long adventure which divides itself between a story of greedy relatives trying to steal an inventor’s amazing device and a B-Plot involving a gangland hit.
The eponymous Dr.Roebling’s equally titular Voice Machine is a radio which can apparently pluck sounds from any time or place in the history of the universe – starting by retrieving some words spoken by Clark, Perry and Lois only a few minutes earlier in the room where the scientists gives the demo, and then again to tune into a popular speech given at “ten o’clock in the morning on November 10th, 1863, at the National Cemetery at Gettysburg”.
The Voice Machine also picks up the sound of an assassination plan, leading Clark (and Superman) on a circuitous route through prison to stop a mobster rubout.
