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.

Juvenile Delinquency (Aired April 24, 1954)
The listener was never left hanging. Mindful of the fact that Case Dismissed was being heard in many other states besides Illinois, the program regularly reminded its listeners that the problems presented and legal remedies offered were based only on then current Illinois Law. But it's also clear that because they were mindful of a larger audience, the producers and writers very helpfully selected a broad range of legal topics that were general enough in nature to present useful choices and information to residents in virtually any state that might be listening in. All told, a fascinating, useful, and well mounted series of legal dramas that accomplished precisely what they set out to do for thirteen weeks. THIS EPISODE: April 24, 1954. NBC network, WMAQ, Chicago origination. Sustaining. The program is produced in co-operation with the Chicago Bar Association. The problem of "Juvenile Delinquency". The last show of the series. Didn't anybody ever comment that the closing theme of this series about the law and lawyers used, as a closing theme, a recording of a Dimitri Kabalevsky composition called, "The Comedians"? Gretchen Thomas, Stanley Gordon, Jack Lester, Harry Elders, Carlton KaDell, Jerry Garvey, Betty Ross (producer), Herbert Littow (director), Tom Evans (sound), John C. Fitzgerald (host, Dean of the Law School, Loyola University), Robert Carmen (writer), Dan Hosek (engineer), Lee Bennett (announcer). 26:52. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Mr. Boyntons Parents (Aired May 14, 1950)
Our Miss Brooks, an American situation comedy, began as a radio hit in 1948 and migrated to television in 1952, becoming one of the earlier hits of the so-called Golden Age of Television, and making a star out of Eve Arden (1908-1990) as comely, wisecracking, but humane high school English teacher Connie Brooks. The show hooked around Connie's daily relationships with Madison High School students, colleagues, and pompous principal Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon), not to mention favourite student Walter Denton (future television and Rambo co-star Richard Crenna, who fashioned a higher-pitched voice to play the role) and biology teacher Philip Boynton ( Jeff Chandler), the latter Connie's all-but-unrequited love interest, who saw science everywhere and little else anywhere. THIS EPISODE: May 14, 1950. CBS network. "Connie Meets Mr. Boynton's Parents". Sponsored by: Colgate Toothpaste, Lustre-Creme Shampoo, Palmolive Soap. Mother's Day will soon arrive, Miss Brooks is named, "Mother Away From Mother." Miss Brooks is about to become Mrs. Boynton...Mr. Boyton's mother! The script was previously used on "Our Miss Brooks" on May 8, 1949. Eve Arden, Jane Morgan, Jeff Chandler, Richard Crenna, Gloria McMillan, Verne Smith (commercial spokesman), Gale Gordon, Frank Nelson, Wilbur Hatch (music), Larry Berns (producer), Bob Lemond (announcer), Al Lewis (director), Myra Marsh. 28:20.

Rendevous With Death (Aired July 12, 1945)
Poirot, the famous Belgian detective, is the prominent character among Christie's works. He's known for his famous moustaches and his brain's "little grey cells." Poirot , in his novels and short stories, has proved that anyone can solve a crime just by simply thinking about it. Hercule Poirot is a fictional detective created by Agatha Christie. Along with Miss Marple, Poirot is one of Christie's most famous and long-lived characters: he appeared in 39 novels and 50 short stories. Poirot has been portrayed on screen, for films and TV, by various actors including Albert Finney, Peter Ustinov, Ian Holm, Tony Randall, Alfred Molina and, most recently, and famously, David Suchet. His character was based on two other fictional detectives of the time: Marie Belloc Lowndes' Hercule Popeau and Frank Howel Evans' Monsieur Poiret, a retired French police officer living in London. A more obvious influence on the early Poirot stories is that of Arthur Conan Doyle. In An Autobiography Christie admits that "I was still writing in the Sherlock Holmes tradition – eccentric detective, stooge assistant, with a Lestrade-type Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Japp."Poirot also bears a striking resemblance to A. E. W. Mason's fictional detective – Inspector Hanaud of the French surete-who, first appearing in the 1910 novel "At the Villa Rose," predates the writing of the first Poirot novel by six years.
