Stray Animals (Aired February 19, 1946)
CBS beckoned Red Skelton to bring his radio show to television. His characters worked even better on screen than on radio; television also provoked him to create his second best-remembered character, Freddie the Freeloader, a traditional tramp whose appearance suggested the elder brother of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus clown Emmett Kelly. Annoucer/voice actor Art Gilmore who voiced numerous movie trailers in Hollywood in the 1950s became the annoucer on the show with David Rose and his orchestra providing the music. Red Skelton's weekly signoff -- "Good night and may God bless" -- became as familiar to television viewers as Edward R. Murrow's "Good night and good luck." Red Skelton was the first CBS television host to begin taping his weekly programs in color, in the early 1960s, after he bought an old movie studio and converted it for television productions. THIS EPISODE: February 19, 1946. NBC network, Hollywood origination. Sponsored by: Raleigh Cigarettes, Sir Walter Raleigh Tobacco. "Stray Animals." The Skelton Scrapbook Of Satire, Chapter 84: "The Black and White Kitty," Chapter 87: "Small Boy and The King Of Beasts," with "Junior, The Mean Widdle Kid." Red Skelton, Rod O'Connor (announcer), David Forrester and His Orchestra, Anita Ellis, Pat McGeehan, Verna Felton. 29:29. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Secret Chamber (Aired November 5, 1976)
The show was broadcast nightly and ran for one hour, including commercials. Typically, a week consisted of three to four new episodes, with the remainder of the week filled out with reruns. There were a total of 1399 original episodes broadcast. The total number of broadcasts, including reruns, was 2969. The late E.G. Marshall hosted the program every year but the final one, when actress Tammy Grimes took over. Each episode began with the ominous sound of a creaking door, slowly opening to invite listeners in for the evening's adventure. At the end of each show, the door would swing shut, with Marshall signing off, "Until next time, pleasant...dreams?" Despite the show's title, Brown expanded its scope beyond mysteries to include horror, science fiction, historical drama, and even comedy. THIS EPISODE: November 5, 1976. Program #547. CBS network. "The Secret Chamber . Sponsored by: True Value Hardware, Buick, Certainteed Insulation. Master Lock Burglar Alarms. E. G. Marshall (host), H. G.

The Butterfly Murder Case (Aired May 17, 1949)
Philo Vance was the detective creation of S. S. Van Dine first published in the mid 1920s. Vance, in the original books, is an intellectual so highly refined he seems he might be ghostwritten by P. G. Wodehouse. Take this quote from The Benson Murder Case, 1924, as Vance pontificates in his inimitable way: "That's your fundamental error, don't y' know. Every crime is witnessed by outsiders, just as is every work of art. The fact that no one sees the criminal, or the artist, actu'lly at work, is wholly incons'quential." Thankfully, the radio series uses only the name, and makes Philo a pretty normal, though very intelligent and extremely courteous gumshoe. Jose Ferrer played him in 1945. From 1948-1950, the fine radio actor Jackson Beck makes Vance as good as he gets. George Petrie plays Vance's constantly impressed public servant, District Attorney Markham. Joan Alexander is Ellen Deering, Vance's secretary and right-hand woman. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: May 17, 1949. Program #45. ZIV Syndication. "The Butterfly Murder Case". Commercials added locally. Josie Daniels, "The Broadway Butterfly," is a nightclub singer that dabbles in blackmail! Jackson Beck. 26:57.

Anna Compton Murder Case (Aired September 15, 1951)
Danny Clover narrated the tales of the Great White Way to the accompaniment of music by Wilbur Hatch and Alexander Courage, and the recreation of Manhattan's aural tapestry required the talents of three sound effects technicians (David Light, Ralph Cummings, Ross Murray). Bill Anders was the show's announcer, as was Joe Walters. The supporting cast included regulars Charles Calvert (as Sgt. Gino Tartaglia) and Jack Kruschen (as Sgt. Muggavan), with episodic roles filled by such radio actors as Irene Tedrow, Barney Phillips, Lamont Johnson, Herb Ellis, Hy Averback, Edgar Barrier, Betty Lou Gerson, Harry Bartell, Sheldon Leonard, Martha Wentworth, Lawrence Dobkin and Mary Jane Croft. Stories came to a climax in the lonely hours just before dawn:Broadway is sleeping now... the furious avenues of the night are still... only the sleepwalkers are there... the seekers, the sodden... it's Broadway. The gaudiest. The most violent. The lonesomest mile in the world. Broadway... my beat! THIS EPISODE: September 15, 1951. "The Anna Compton Murder Case" - CBS network origination, AFRTS rebroadcast. Anna Compton has been found dead in a car...the trail leads to her very strange husband.

The Phil Harris & Alice Faye Show - That's A Horse On You (10-02-53) That's A Horse On You (Aired October 2, 1953)
As both Phil and Alice were known singers, there were two musical numbers in each show, and they were always for real, except some of Phil's, which were for laughs. But Phil's band gave much more than music to the show. Frankie Remley was the band's left handed guitar player, with a sardonic sense of humor out of left field. The character was first done on The Jack Benny Show, and, of course, now on a show about the band itself, Frankie was even more obnoxious. Famed radio actor Elliott Lewis played him with relish. In fact, later in the run they actually started calling the character Elliott! (Elliott Lewis changes his name on the show from Frankie Remly to Elliott because Harris stopped leading Jack Benny's band--so he wasn't connected to Remly any more. THIS EPISODE: October 2, 1953. NBC network. Sponsored by: RCA. Phil buys a horse! "A Day At Santa Anita," or "That's A Horse On You." Phil sings, "Dig For Your Dinner." The program was recorded September 19, 1953. Unedited tape. Alice Faye, Anne Whitfield, Bill Forman (announcer), Dick Chevillat (writer), Edward James (writer), Elliott Lewis, Jeanine Roos, John Hubbard, Phil Harris, Ray Singer (writer), Walter Scharf and His Orchestra, Walter Tetley. 34:11.

Col. Corey Ford and Major Alastair MacBain (who were associated with the OSS from its early days.)

M. A two-man mission into occupied France to locate a German submarine base is turned into a three-man mission. The final promotional announcement and system cue have been deleted.

The Wireless Set (Aired September 21, 1952)
This series was very similar to the Black Museum that was hosted by Orson Welles. Both the Black Museum and Whitehall 1212 drew their material from the files of Scotland Yard. The stories were true in every respect except that the names were changed to protect the innocent, as they say. The Whitehall 1212 series boasted that for the first time Scotland Yard opened its files and the producers promised to bring to the public authentic true stories of some of the most celebrated cases. Permission for these records came from Sir Harold Scott, Commissioner of the yard at that time. There is actually a Black Museum. This area is located on the lower ground floor of Scotland Yard and it does indeed contain articles that are closely associated with the solving of a crime. And "Whitehall 1212" was the actual emergency phone number for the yard at the time. THIS EPISODE: September 21, 1952. NBC network. Sustaining. A "Wireless Set" that was never intended to be operative is in the "Black Museum" because of its involvement with the murder of a bartender with strychnine. Horace Braham, Harvey Hayes, Catherine Hines, Lionel Ricou (announcer), Lester Fletcher, Francois Grimar, Guy Spaull, Percy Hoskins (researcher), Wyllis Cooper (writer, director), Carl Harburg. 29:31.
