Confidence Game (Aired May 4, 1945)
This Is Your FBI was a radio crime drama which aired in the United States on ABC from April 6, 1945 to January 30, 1953. FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover gave it his endorsement, calling it "the finest dramatic program on the air." Producer-director Jerry Devine was given access to FBI files by Hoover, and the resulting dramatizations of FBI cases were narrated by Frank Lovejoy (1945), Dean Carleton (1946-47) and William Woodson (1948-53). Stacy Harris had the lead role of Special Agent Jim Taylor. Others in the cast were William Conrad, Bea Benaderet and Jay C. Flippen. This Is Your FBI was sponsored during its entire run by the Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States (now AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company). THIS EPISODE: May 4, 1945. Blue Network. "The Confidence Game: A Crime Against Society". Sponsored by: The Equitable Life Assurance Society. William Roscoe, dressed as an Army officer, preys on lonely women and passes bad checks.

Black Market Blackie (Aired July 21, 1944)
The Boston Blackie radio series, also starring Morris, began June 23, 1944, on NBC as a summer replacement for The Amos 'n' Andy Show. Sponsored by Rinso, the series continued until September 15 of that year. Unlike the concurrent films, Blackie had a steady romantic interest in the radio show: Lesley Woods appeared as Blackie's girlfriend Mary Wesley. Harlow Wilcox was the show's announcer. On April 11, 1945, Richard Kollmar took over the title role in a radio series syndicated by Frederic W. Ziv to Mutual and other network outlets. Over 200 episodes of this series were produced between 1944 and October 25, 1950. THIS EPISODE: July 21, 1944. "Black Market Blackie" aka: Black Market Meat Ring - NBC net, WEAF, New York aircheck. Sponsored by: Rinso, Lifebuoy Soap, Bulova (local). A gang of black-market meat sellers wants Blackie to join the gang. When Blackie says, "No," Inspector Farraday is of no help. Chester Morris, Richard Lane, Harlow Wilcox (announcer), Charles Cornell (organ), Tony Barrett, Ray Barrett (local WEAF announcer), Jan Miner. 28:34. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Adventure Of The Sobbing Bodyguard (Aired October 9, 1949)
The Series was heard over all four networks over the following four years in initial syndication and rebroadcast. Given one's geographical location, a listener might well have been able to hear as many as three or four weekly airings of The Adventures of Frank Race. Seasoned writer Joel Murcott joined Broadcasters Program Syndicate for the express purpose of writing and supervising Bruce Eells' first two dramatic offerings, Frontier Town, starring Jeff Chandler under the tongue in cheek performing name 'Tex Chandler' and The Adventures of Frank Race initially starring durable and versatile character actor Tom Collins. Legendary composer Ivan Ditmars scored both the audition and production series. The audition for the series was recorded during February 1949. The audition featured Tom Collins as former attorney and O.S.S. officer, Frank Race. Race is aided by his associate, former cab driver, Marcus 'Marc' Donovan portrayed by Tony Barrett. Lurene Tuttle is also featured in the audition. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: October 9, 1949. Program #24. Broadcasters Program Syndicate syndication. "The Adventure Of The Sobbing Bodyguard". Commercials added locally. A murder-suicide. Or is it suicide-murder? Race's pal Mark is framed either way. Paul Dubov, Tony Barrett, Buckley Angel (writer, director), Joel Murcott (writer, director), Bruce Eells (producer), Ivan Ditmars (organist), Art Gilmore (announcer), Gerald Mohr, Lillian Buyeff, Tom Holland, Michael Ann Barrett, Jack Kruschen. 25:34.

The Blonde's Lipstick (Aired November 6, 1947)
Two months into the Television run, CBS re-cast Casey and Ethelbert, substituting young Darren McGavin as Jack Casey. The most distinguishing element of the short-lived Television Casey was its direction, with the famed future Film Director Sidney Lumet helming the series. CBS and Coxe took another run at Crime Photographer over Radio in 1954, reprising Staats Cotsworth, John Gibson and Jan Miner in their previous Radio roles. The 1954 run extended to the Spring of 1955, at which point the Crime Photographer franchise had pretty much run its course. The sleuthing photographer format didn't end with the CBS/Coxe franchise. ABC took a run at the concept with their Man With A Camera (1958), starring Charles Bronson, and running for two seasons, though it bore no resemblance whatsoever to the Casey, Crime Photographer franchise. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group and The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: November 6, 1947. CBS network. "The Blonde's Lipstick". Sponsored by: Anchor Hocking Glass. Laura Neely disappears with $10,000 in cash she had collected for the City Welfare Fund, much to Casey's embarrassment. Archie Bleyer (music), Herman Chittison (piano), Jan Miner, John Dietz (director), John Gibson, Milton Kramer (writer), Staats Cotsworth, Tony Marvin (announcer), George Harmon Coxe (creator). 29:57.

Lady In The Morgue (Aired May 15, 1945)
The program appears to have aired sustained for its first three months, with three to five sponsors beginning to make an appearance with Program #17, "The Mystery of The Seven Keys" of December 28, 1943. There is a circulating program titled "Homicide for Hannah", that should have been the first Molle Mystery Theatre, but there is no provenance anywhere that the initial program ever actually aired. This is the first circulating program in which we hear the program refer to itself as Molle Mystery Theatre. But throughout its NBC run, we hear sponsorship by Ironized Yeast, Energene, Bayer Aspirin, Sterling Drug, and Molle. To its everlasting credit, NBC clearly went to great lengths to promote the script titles, performers and authors of each program to the nation's newpapers. From 1943 through 1948, Mystery Theatre was one of the most well documented and promoted radio programs of its time. Indeed, so many details were available for its entire NBC run that this was one of the easiest logs we've developed in some time. We have solid, highly detailed newspaper listing provenances for almost ninety percent of the first 237 programs. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group and The Digital Deli.

The Jogger (Aired April 16, 1982)
Nightfall is a radio drama series produced and aired by CBC Radio from July 1980 to June 1983. While primarily a supernatural/horror series, Nightfall featured some episodes in other genres, such as science fiction, mystery, fantasy, and human drama. One episode was even adapted from a folk song by Stan Rogers. Some of Nightfall's episodes were so terrifying that the CBC registered numerous complaints and some affiliate stations dropped it. Despite this, the series went on to become one of the most popular shows in CBC Radio history, running 100 episodes that featured a mix of original tales and adaptations of both classic and obscure short stories. Show Notes From Calfkiller Old Time Radio THIS EPISODE: April 16, 1982. Program #59. CBC network, Toronto origination. "The Jogger". A good story about a 48-year-old man who pushes his body into shape...to keep up with, "The Jogger." John Stocker (triples), Melleny Brown, Neil Dainard, Alan Fawcett, John Granik, John Jessop (recording engineer), Bill Robinson (sound effects), Nancy McElvene (production assistant), Bill Howell (producer, director, executive producer), Henry Ramer (host), Linda Sorenson, Tony Bell (writer). 25:15.

A Piece Of Rope (Aired December 5, 1949)
MGM produced Crime Does Not Pay shorts through 1948, at which time WMGM began airing the Crime Does Not Pay radio program. While some of the Film version themes found their way into the Radio version, almost all seventy-eight Radio Crime Does Not Pay topics are original to the series. Many have theorized that some or all of the Crime Does Not Pay radio scripts had been works-in-progress for the Film version, or perhaps even envisioned for Television, where many of the Film shorts were already airing from time to time. Whatever the medium, Crime Does Not Pay seems to have touched a nerve with the American public. THIS EPISODE: December 5, 1949. Program #9. MGM syndication. "A Piece Of Rope". Commercials added locally. Dukie Defore works for a "service" business that murders people on contract...and Dukie always kills with a rope! The date above is the date of the first broadcast of this program on WMGM, New York from which this syndicated version may have been taken. Cameron Mitchell, Ira Marion (writer), Marx B. Loeb (director), Jon Gart (composer, conductor), Burton B. Turkas (technical advisor), Bob Williams (announcer). 26:45. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

On The Trail Of A Killer (Aired January 5, 1954)
Both Frank Sinatra's and Ava Gardner's careers were approaching critical junctures--a publicists dream, but rapidly dimming any possibility for a continuation of Rocky Fortune, or any other such Radio vehicle for Frank Sinatra. NBC had auditioned two other such detective genre vehicles for Sinatra--'Frankie Galahad, Private Detective', and an Erle Stanley Gardner series. Some intriguing prospects to be sure. If only . . . .Rocco Fortunato was a young New Yorker on his way up and out of the endless dead-end jobs his employment agency was sending him on, like the oyster-shucking job they sent him to that yielded only a handful of 'clams' for his efforts--but a bonus of 12 big hot pearls in the bargain. And much as Alan Ladd's character in Box 13, Rocky Fortune was clearly ready for a more vibrant, exciting, and financially rewarding career change. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: January 5, 1954. "On The Trail Of A Killer" NBC network. Frank's good friend Ellie is, "fat, forty and frustrated." She marries a no-goodnik and is soon murdered. Rocky takes out in hot pursuit and nearly rides the rails...with his ticket punched with a bullet, "from here to eternity." Frank Sinatra, Paula Victor, Tom McKee, John Sutton, Barney Phillips, Jay Loft Lynn, Maurice Hart, Norm Sickle (writer), Andrew C. Love (director). 23:53. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

How To Win Money And Influence People (Aired December 9, 1957)
The series broke from the variety tradition dominant in British radio comedy into the sitcom or Situation comedy genre. Instead of sketches, guest stars and musical interludes, humour developed from the characters and situations. Hancock's experiences were based in reality and observation. From the playlet "Look Back In Hunger" in The East Cheam Drama Festival episode, Galton and Simpson showed they were in touch with developments in the British theatre, the use of sighs and silent pauses in common with the work of Harold Pinter which began to emerge towards the end of the series' run. The measured pacing of these episodes were groundbreaking in the days of fast-talking Ted Ray, where every second of airtime had to be filled.

The Case Of The Calculated Risk (01-19-51)
Nero Wolf is a fictional detective created by American author Rex Stout in the 1930s and featured in dozens of novels and novellas.In the stories, Wolfe is one of the most famous private detectives in the United States. He weighs about 285 pounds and is 5'11" tall. He raises orchids in a rooftop greenhouse in his New York City brownstone on West 35th Street, helped by his live-in gardener Theodore Horstmann. Wolfe (Wolf) drinks beer throughout the day and is a glutton. He employs a live-in chef, Fritz Brenner. He is multilingual and brilliant, though apparently self-educated, and reading is his third passion after food and orchids. He works in an office in his house and almost never leaves home, even to pursue the detective work that finances his expensive lifestyle. Instead, his leg work is done by another live-in employee, Archie Goodwin. While both Wolfe and Goodwin are licensed detectives, Goodwin is more of the classic fictional gumshoe, tough, wise-cracking, and skirt-chasing. He tells the stories in a breezy first-person narrative that is semi-hard-boiled in style.
