The Adventures of Babe Ruth

Im not a big ruth fan he once said "I'd play for half my salary if I could hit in this dump (Wrigley Field) all the time."

Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world.

The Adventures of Babe Ruth radio show was a 15 minute program heard three times a week from April 16 to July 13, 1934 and produced by the NBC Blue Network , which later became ABC, and was sponsored by Quaker Oats and the U.S. Navy.  As the name suggests, it described different situations from his career which presented in-depth true life episodes of the Babe.  Babe Ruth made many forays into various popular media. He was heard often on radio in the 1930's and 1940's, both as a guest and on his own programs with various titles.
