WLS - Dick Orkin's 'The Tooth Fairy'

In the mid-1960s WCFL-AM's Dick Orkin came up with a comedic serial called "Chickenman." In 1971, he created a new serial and character called "The Tooth Fairy," only this time it aired locally on WLS-AM. (It also aired on thousands of other radio stations nationwide.) Well over 300 episodes -- each about 2 to 2.5 minutes in length -- were produced. Here now are three early episodes of "The Secret Adventures of the Tooth Fairy."
