-- Tarzan of the Apes 
Part I: Edgar Rice Burroughs Radio Projects

From his first success in selling Under the Moons of Mars to a pulp magazine in 1911, ERB had been successful in selling his ideas and literary creations to other media: newspaper serials, magazine articles, art, book publishing, movie features & serials, comic strips, phonograph records, advertising schemes, real estate development, special books & clubs for young people, music, foreign licensing, and merchandising.

In the late '20s, ERB was intrigued by the new medium of radio which he recognized as a another avenue for creative expression, as well as an opportunity for great money-making ventures. Noticing the strong interest of the radio-listening public in the top shows of the day, he suggested, "I have evolved a wild and possibly ludicrous plan of publicity for (my books)...there might be possibilities in the reading of one of my books by myself over the radio for fifteen minutes nightly in conjunction with some program having a national hook-up." He felt he could overcome professed nervousness if he could read from "familiar copy" and not be required to speak extemporaneously. Apparently the timing and circumstances were not right for this proposal, but this early interest led to other radio projects. 


ERB 1931: Perhaps in my radio contract I shall insist upon the reservation to me of the interplanetary rights. Why not? Radio rights and sound and dialog rights would have seemed as preposterous twenty years ago...long before my copyrights expire television rights will be worth a fortune.... 
In 1931 Burroughs approved a Tarzan series of fifteen-minute, daily radio shows transcribed to 16" discs, by the American Radio Syndicate. The scripts, which used a combination of narration, dialogue and sound effects, were closely supervised by ERB who had a special interest in the serial since it starred daughter Joan and her husband James Pierce. He was fascinated with the quality of the sound effects but did not hesitate to criticize the scripts whenever they appeared to be sloppily prepared, or whenever they presented the apeman as showing fear, laughing or exhibiting any other out-of-character behaviour. 
TARZAN PROGRAM OFF TO FLYING START -- World Premiere Introduces Radio Tarzan to Thousands

Saturday, September 10th, the first Radio Premiere on record presented to radio fans all over the State the first episode in the thrilling adventures of "Tarzan of the Apes," sponsored by the Signal Oil and Gas Company. Critics and thousands of motorists who jammed the World Premiere Radio Show at Fox Pantages Theatre in Hollywood proclaimed it the most fascinating and colorful radio program they had ever heard.

Among those who participated in the stage show were Jim Pierce, all-American football player and well-known actor, who takes the part of Tarzan in Signal's sensational radio serial; Miss Joan Burroughs, talented actress and daughter of Edgar Rice Burroughs; Mr. Burroughs himself, internationally known author of all "Tarzan" stories together with the entire radio cast.... --Signal News - Published by the Signal Oil & Gas Co. in the Interest of Its Dealers., Vol. 1, No. 3, September 1932. 


Within two years Burroughs, perhaps anxious to gain more control of the radio shows for ERB Inc., started to voice great dissatisfaction with the scripts and considered taking on the actual writing of the scripts himself. 
ERB 1935:

There is one factor that may have more effect on reducing book sales than any number of depressions, and that is radio, to which we are looking for far greater returns than our book royalties ever brought us. Already, with two programs, we are netting more than we do from the sale of all our books, which, taken in connection with the fact that there are hundreds of similar programs on the air, suggests that people are taking their fiction this way instead of through books. 
1936 - I SEE BY THE PAPERS Radio Show Proposal:

ERB conceived a "live talent program" for radio. The setting would be the editorial office of the Tarzana Tribune. The cast would include Burroughs as a columnist, along with a good-hearted but sarcastic and critical small-town editor-publisher, a dumb blonde stenographer and an office boy. ERB would discuss his daily column -- filled with news, quips and gags -- with the editor who would give caustic comments about it. The human interest would center about the problems and family troubles of the stenographer and office boy. Demo recordings of the show, as well as proposals for spin-off column, were rejected. 
1939 - QUIET, PLEASE! Radio Show Proposal:

ERB saw this as a weekly, fifteen-minute, one-character show in which he would comment on, and present listener responses about, news events, jokes and verses. The emphasis was on quiet -- ERB vehemently expressed his objections to noise. His ramblings on the topic would include verse such as:
The saddest sound that ere did cut
The silence and disturb:
The traffic coppers "putt-putt-putt"
That pulls you to the curb.
                                                                   ---ERB
Again there was no sponsor interest and the show was never broadcast.

"II. TARZAN AND THE DIAMOND OF ASHER:
Although originally broadcast in 1934, the following introduction was penned by Edgar Rice Burroughs for the announcer to read introducing a 1940 broadcast of Tarzan And The Diamond of Asher. "We bring you Tarzan, that immortal fictional character of Edgar Rice Burroughs, in a new and exciting serial entitled TARZAN AND THE DIAMOND OF ASHER, which is adapted from the novel, 'Tarzan And The Forbidden City.' Deep in the heart of Africa rises a mighty cone-shaped mountain, an extinct volcano, in the huge crater of which lies The Forbidden City of Asher... To reach this stronghold two safaris endure hardships and perils that bring death to some and high adventure to all... One safari is bent on the rescue of the son of its leader... the other, headed by a wily and unscrupulous Oriental, seeks only the Father of Diamonds... And through the intrigue and mystery and the danger moves the majestic figure of Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle." (Originally a 39-episode serial of 15 minute installments)

III. TARZAN AND THE FIRES OF TOHR 1936:
Mysterious Africa is home to Edgar Rice Burroughs' immortal character, Tarzan of the Apes. While investigating the illegal activities of slave traders and ivory smugglers, Tarzan and his friend, Paul D'Arnot save a member of the Burton-Ashleigh Expedition from death. After learning that the expedition is lost, Tarzan agrees to lead the group out of the jungle. Little did they realize however, that they would soon be captured by a strange yellow race, and taken to the lost city of Tohr... There they faced the dangers of the arena, rogue elephants and sacrifice to the Fires of Tohr—the result of a hidden lake of volcanic fire that shoots up through a pit to the very arms of the temple god, an idol carved in the likeness of a lion. Befriending the son of the ruler of a rival city who is held as a slave in Tohr, Tarzan and his friends face death at every turn. Love, hate, jealousy, and political intrigue—as well as courage and loyalty—all play parts in this thrilling serial produced under the personal direction of Edgar Rice Burroughs.
