Magic Island was a science-fantasy radio serial syndicated
in 1936. The series had 130 12-minute episodes, and all episodes
The storyline followed wealthy Patricia Gregory as she ended her
14-year search in the South Pacific for her long lost daughter Joan.
When Joan was one-year-old, the Gregory yacht was shipwrecked near
the 30th Parallel. Lashed to a lifeboat, Joan was presumed lost
by all but Patricia. In the opening episode, she receives a tip
about a white girl living on a mysterious island populated by scientifically
advanced people in the Pacific. After the reunion of mother and
daughter, the program dramatized their subsequent adventures on
the island which could submerge to escape detection.
Targeted at a juvenile audience, Magic Island featured Sally Creighton

Jerry Hall and Will H. Reynolds as Capt. Tex Bradford.

of Patricia found alive and well on the island of Euclidia.
