The Revolt Of The Space Rats (Aired November 28, 1953)
The success of the TV show spawned a radio version, which ran for 129 episodes from October 1952 to March 1955. The same cast of actors performed on both shows. The writers, scripts, adventures and director were quite different in radio versus TV incarnations. Naturally, the series lacked the adult sophistication of such shows as X Minus One, which focused on adapting short fiction by notable genre names as Robert A. Heinlein and Ray Bradbury. But as a throwback to the sort of Golden Age space opera popularized in the 1930s, the days of science fiction's infancy, by pioneering magazine editor Hugo Gernsback, Space Patrol is prized by OTR collectors today as one of radio's most enjoyable adventures. THIS EPISODE: November 28, 1953. ABC network. "The Revolt Of The Space Rats". Sponsored by: Ralston cereals ("Name The Planet" contest), Test Pilot endorsement. Two bad guys on Pluto's third moon conspire to free Prince Bacaratti once again. Bela Kovacs, Dick Tufeld (announcer), Ed Kemmer, George Welsh (test pilot, commercial), Ken Mayer, Larry Robertson (producer, director), Lou Houston (writer), Lyn Osborn, Mike Devry (executive producer), Mike Mosser (creator), Norman Jolley. 28:52.

The Man Who Liked The Mountains (Aired August 7, 1948)
Jeff Regan, Investigator was one of the three detective shows Jack Webb did before Dragnet (see also Pat Novak For Hire and Johnny Modero: Pier 23). It debuted on CBS in July 1948. Webb played JEFF REGAN, a tough private eye working in a Los Angeles investigation firm run by Anthony J. Lyon. Regan introduced himself on each show "I get ten a day and expenses...they call me the Lyon's Eye." The show was fairly well-plotted, Webb's voice was great, and the supporting cast were skillful. Regan handled rough assignments from Lion, with whom he was not always on good terms. He was tough, tenacious, and had a dry sense of humor. The voice of his boss, Anthony Lion, was Wilms Herbert. The show ended in December 1948 but was resurrected in October 1949 with a new cast; Frank Graham played Regan (later Paul Dubrov was the lead) and Frank Nelson portrayed Lion. THIS EPISODE: August 7, 1948. CBS network. "The Man Who Liked Mountains". Sustaining. "Big Ed" Kittredge has disappeared...a most unsavory character Betty Lou Gerson, E. Jack Neuman (writer), Edgar Barrier, Eve McVeagh, Gordon T.

Special Guest Is Tony Curtis (Aired February 29, 1952)
On July 25, 1946, Jerry began a show business partnership with Dean Martin, an association that would soon skyrocket both to fame. It started when Jerry was performing at the 500 Club in Atlantic City and one of the other entertainers quit suddenly. Lewis, who had worked with Martin at the Glass Hat in New York City, suggested Dean as a replacement. At first they worked separately, but then ad-libbed together, improvising insults and jokes, squirting seltzer water, hurling bunches of celery and exuding general zaniness. In less than eighteen weeks their salaries soared from $250.00 a week to $5,000.00. For ten years Martin and Lewis sandwiched sixteen money making films between nightclub engagements, personal appearances, recording sessions, radio shows, and television bookings. THIS EPISODE: February 29, 1952. "Special Guest Is Tony Curtis" - NBC network. Sponsored by: Chesterfield, Anacin, Dentyne. The first tune is, "San Fernando Valley."

Every Detail But One (Aired February 7, 1988)
Fear On Four is the British Broadcasting Corporation's continuation of a tradition of horror shows dating back to 1943.

The stories were introduced by The Man in Black, played by Valentine Dyall. In 1949, The Man In Black was given his own series, called The Man In Black, again featuring Valentine Dyall. Unfortunately, only four shows from Appointment With Fear are known to have survived. None of The Man In Black shows are known to exist. The Man in Black returned to radio again in 1988, this time played by Edward de Souza. FEAR ON 4, airing on BBC Radio Four, continued in the tradition of its predecessors.

The Makeup Man (Aired May 29, 1949)
The Encyclopedia of Old Time Radio" describes Jordan as "a rugged hero who each week was confronted by a crime, a mystery, a beautiful woman or a combination of the three. It was a detective show with a difference: the Oriental background was played to the hilt, giving it a sound like no other." The writers worked hard to give it authenticity - actual places and streets in Cairo were often and accurately mentioned. The music score also added to the exoticness of the series. Moyles, a veteran of radio, was much more believable in the role than Raft. The show was one of the best examples of the so-called "amateur detective" or "unlicenced private investigator" type that were a recurring theme for radio series. THIS EPISODE: May 29, 1949. CBS Pacific network. "The Make-Up Man". Sustaining. Max Vladny, a Hollywood make-up man with a Russian accent as thick as borscht (which is supposed to be a Hungarian accent), asks Rocky Jordan for protection from assassination attempts. An announcement is made that the program is moving next week to 5:00 P. M. Jack Moyles, Larry Thor (announcer), Paul Frees, Richard Aurandt (composer, conductor), Cliff Howell (producer, director), Larry Roman (story editor), Gomer Cool (story editor), E. Jack Neuman (writer). 29:39. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Secret Word Is Paper (Aired January 14, 1955)
The mid-1940s was a depressing lull in Groucho's career. His radio show Blue Ribbon Town, sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, which ran from March 1943 to August 1944, had failed to catch on and Groucho left the program in June 1944. After a radio appearance with Bob Hope, in which Marx ad-libbed most of his performance after being forced to stand by in a waiting room for 40 minutes before going on the air, John Guedel, the program's producer, formed an idea for a quiz show and approached Marx about the subject. After initial reluctance by Marx, Guedel was able to convince him to host the program after Marx realized the quiz would be only a backdrop for his contestant interviews, and the storm of ad-libbing that they would elicit. THIS EPISODE: January 14, 1955. Syndicated, WNEW-TV, New York audio aircheck. "The Secret Word Is Paper". Participating sponsors. The first contestant is Frank Farber. Syndicated rebroadcast date: April 7, 1975. Groucho Marx, George Fenneman (announcer), Jack Meakin (music), Frank Farber. 29:48. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Notebook On Murder (Aired September 15, 1940)
KMPC's The Hermit's Cave debuted over Southern California airwaves late Sunday evening on the 22nd of September, 1940. Initially airing all over the late Sunday evening schedule, after twenty-six episodes The Hermit's Cave found regular sponsors and began airing on Sunday nights at 9:30 for the following four years without interruption. The KMPC run of The Hermit's Cave ended with its 217th episode on November 12th 1944. Versatile Southern California animator, pianist, newscaster and Radio actor John Dehner assumed the role of 'The Hermit' for the latter half of the KMPC run. And so it was that The Hermit's Cave ultimately extended its reach quite literally from East Coast to West Coast across America--from Maryland broadcasts of the WJR-transcribed run to KMPC's own orginal California run. Between 1940 and 1944 The Hermit's Cave was being heard over at least three of the four major networks, at least four regional powerhouse stations, and over at least twenty-three independent stations via transcription. THIS EPISODE: September 15, 1940. World syndication. "Notebook On Murder". Sponsored by: Commercials deleted or added locally. A woman who is recovering from a nervous breakdown is terorized by a burglar in the house. Keeping a "notebook on crime," she names her killer from beyond the grave!. 24:01.
