Summary: Escape was widely considered radio’s greatest series of high adventure. The opening was usually along the same lines of “Tired of the everyday grind? Ever dream of a life of … romantic adventure? Want to get away from it all? We offer you … Escape!” You, the listener, are in the shoes of some embattled hero. You are alone and you must face the impossible, alone and rise to conquer or be conquered.
