1975: I was just beginning my radio career at college station WPGU-FM, hosting an investigative mini-documentary radio series, Probe.

What would be more natural to “investigate” than my passion for comic books—with what became the first of several interviews over my career with Marvel Comics impresario Stan Lee?

Presented here far more for the value of Lee’s remarks—including his disappointment in the then-new Fantastic Four radio series and his enthusiasm for Howard the Duck—than for my own stuffy and waaaay-underdeveloped on-air presence: Stan Lee on WPGU Radio’s Probe.

Enjoy this? Check out these much-more-polished later encounters with Lee, here and here.
