The Adventure Of The Green Doubloon (Aired October 2, 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. The audition lays out the premise for the contemplated series. THIS EPISODE: October 2, 1949. Program #23. Broadcasters Program Syndicate syndication. "The Adventure Of The Green Doubloon". Commercials added locally. Frank and his sidekick Mark are in rainswept Colon, Panama, tracking down an embezzler.

Miscarriage Of Justice (Aired October 2, 1947)
The adventures of Casey, crack photographer for The Morning Express, were told in this series, which moved to television after a highly successful run on radio in the 1940’s. Casey hung out at the Blue Note Café, where the music was provided by the Tony Mottola Trio, and was friendly with Ethelbert, the bartender, to whom he recounted his various exploits. Richard Carlyle and John Gibson portrayed the roles when the series premiered in April, 1951, but by June they were replaced by Darren McGavin and Cliff Hall. Ann Williams, a reporter on The Morning Express, was Casey’s girlfriend. During the summer of 1951 he acquired a partner in cub reporter Jack Lipman, who wrote copy to go with Casey’s pictures. This live series was set in and broadcast from, New York City. THIS EPISODE: October 2, 1947. CBS network. "Miscarriage Of Justice". Sponsored by: Anchor Hocking Glass.

Selling Umbrellas (Aired April 1, 1952)
Fibber McGee and Molly premiered in 1935. The program struggled in the ratings until 1940, when it became a national sensation. Within three years, it was the top-rated program in America. Few radio shows were more beloved than Fibber McGee and Molly. The program’s lovable characters included Mayor LaTrivia, Doc Gamble, Mrs. Uppington, Wallace Wimple, Alice Darling, Gildersleeve, Beulah, Myrt, and the Old Timer. 79 Wistful Vista was one of America’s most famous addresses and Molly’s warning to Fibber not to open the hall closet door (and his subsequent decision to do it) created one of radio’s best remembered running gags that audiences expected each week. THIS EPISODE: April 1, 1952. "Selling Umbrellas" - NBC network. Sponsored by: Pet Milk. Fibber's latest get-rich-quick scheme: selling umbrellas during a heat wave. His inside information comes from the corns of the Old Timer. Jim Jordan, Marian Jordan, Harlow Wilcox, Gale Gordon, Bill Thompson, Arthur Q. Bryan, Richard LeGrand, Cliff Arquette, Joe Forte, Billy Mills and His Orchestra, Jean Vander Pyl, Jeffrey Silver, Phil Leslie (writer), Keith Fowler (writer), Max Hutto (director), The King's Men. 33:30.

Find A Hired Assassin (Aired May 27, 1953)
Dangerous Assignment stands as one of the most durable programs of its genre and era in the waning days of The Golden Age of Radio. Espionage or foreign intrigue dramas weren't particularly groundbreaking undertakings by the 1950s. Bulldog Drummond was the first of the more successful exemplars of Radio espionage and intrigue, running from 1941 to 1954, most often under the lead of the gifted character actor, George Coulouris. The Counterspy series had been well underway since 1942 and ran in one incarnation or another through 1954. The Man Called X had already aired--to great popular and critical acclaim--for almost five years prior to 1949. Indeed, within a year of airing Dangerous Assignment's Summer 1949 season, The Man Called X returned to the air for another two years. For one of those years, Dangerous Assignment and The Man Called X ran back to back in the NBC line-up. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: May 27, 1953. " Find A Hired Assassin" - NBC network. Sustaining. Steve Mitchell travels to Havana to capture a hired assassin who uses poisons. A southern gal and a game of hide and seek helps Steve to catch the killer. Adrian Gendot (writer), Betty Lou Gerson, Bill Cairn (director), Brian Donlevy, Herb Butterfield, Herb Ellis, John Storm (announcer), Julie Bennett, Paul Dubov, Robert Ryf (writer), Tony Barrett. 24:24.

A Gangster District Attorney (Aired October 15, 1947)
The format of the Vincent Price run of The Saint bears a bit of exposition. The signature theme of The Saint over Radio opened all of the Vincent Price canon and beyond. Any sponsor messages usually prefaced the signature whistle and opening theme. The Trim Hair Tonic-sponsored regional run of The Saint from CBS' KNX studios provided three sponsor messages: one at the open, one in the middle and one near the close. From that run forward, Vincent Price would customarily close the program with a personal message directed at one of several pet causes. Though it's not currently known if this was at Price's request or the producers', one can well imagine Vincent Price requesting the closing appeal. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group and The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: October 15, 1947. CBS network. "A Gangster District Attorney". Sponsored by: Trim (a hair tonic made with "pure virgin olive oil"!). The Saint is after the killer of G-Man John Daniels, despite an offer of $5000 to leave town. He discovers that the District Attorney is the killer! Vincent Price, Leslie Charteris (creator), Wendell Niles (announcer), William Fontaine (composer, conductor), Michael Cramoy (writer), James L. Saphier (producer). 27:49. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Corpse I Didn't Kill (Aired June 13, 1946)
Rogue's Gallery came to the Mutual network on September 27, 1945 with Dick Powell portraying Richard Rogue, a private detective who invariably ended up getting knocked out each week and spending his dream time in acerbic conversation with his subconscious self, Eugor. Rogue's Gallery was, in a sense, Dick Powell's rehearsal for Richard Diamond, Private Detective. Powell played private detective Richard Rogue, who trailed luscious blondes, protected witness, and did whatever else detectives do to make a living. It was a good series, though not destined to make much of a mark. Under the capable direction of Dee Englebach and accompanied by the music of Leith Stevens, Powell floated through his lines with the help of such competents as Lou Merrill, Gerald Mohr, Gloria Blondell, Tony Barrett, and Lurene Tuttle. Peter Leeds played Rogue's friend Eugor, an obscure play on names with Eugor spelling Rogue backwards. THIS EPISODE: June 13, 1946. Mutual network. "The Corpse I Didn't Kill". Sponsored by: Fitch's Shampoo, Fitch's Hair Tonic. Rogue's pal Joe Dale has been shot dead in his elegant home. Rogue is accused of the crime by two of his "friends." Rogue gets hit on the head only two minutes into the program! The program opening is slightly upcut, the system cue has been deleted or is added live. Dick Powell, Jim Doyle (announcer), Ray Buffum (writer), Leith Stevens (composer, conductor), Dee Englebach (director), Peter Leeds. 29:02. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Doubtful Alibi (Aired November 6, 1948)
Frank Merriwell is a fictional character appearing in a series of novels and short stories by Gilbert Patten, who wrote under the pseudonym Burt L. Standish. The character also appears in numerous radio serials and comic books based on the stories. The model for all later American juvenile sports fiction, Merriwell excelled at football, baseball, basketball, crew and track at Yale while solving mysteries and righting wrongs. He played with great strength and received traumatic blows without injury. A biographical entry on Patten noted dryly that Frank Merriwell "had little in common with his creator or his readers." Patten offered some background on his character: "The name was symbolic of the chief characteristics I desired my hero to have. Frank for frankness, merry for a happy disposition, well for health and abounding vitality." Merriwell's classmates observed, "He never drinks. That's how he keeps himself in such fine condition all the time. He will not smoke, either, and he takes his exercise regularly. THIS EPISODE: November 6, 1948. NBC network. "The Doubtful Alibi". Sustaining. Frank uses a horseless carriage to put out a fire and some fancy detective work to catch the culprit responsible for it. Lawson Zerbe, Hal Studer, Elaine Rost, Harlow Wilcox (announcer), Burt L. Standish (creator). 29:21. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Luke Slaughter Of Tombstone" - Outlaw Kid (Aired May 25, 1958)
Each program had an authoritative opening statement: "Slaughter's my name, Luke Slaughter. Cattle's my business. It's a tough business, it's a big business. I got a big stake in it. And there's no man west of the Rio Grande big enough to take it away from me." Junius Matthews was heard as Slaughter's sidekick, Wichita. In his first adventure, tough-as-nails westerner Luke Slaughter guarantees he will bring a cattle herd to Tombstone despite the threats of rustlers and a spy among the ranks of his cowboys. Like the other CBS radio westerns, Have Gun, Will Travel or Frontier Gentleman, this one had plenty of action, the productions were well done and well acted. Luke Slaugher was cut short, like a lot of other radio shows, by the steady pressure from TV. THIS EPISODE: May 25, 1958. "Outlaw Kid" - CBS network origination, AFRS rebroadcast. Luke is accused of stealing horses and rustling cattle. He and Wichita hit the trail to Mexico to prove their innocence. AFRS program name: "Sagebrush Theatre." Both the AFRS and the AFRTS system cues are heard during this series. Sam Buffington, Lawrence Dobkin, Luis Van Rooten, William N. Robson (adaptor, director), Wilbur Hatch (music), Robert Stanley (writer), Tom Hanley (editorial supervisor), Junius Matthews, Don Diamond. 25:50. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Marvin Thomas Entry (Aired June 8, 1948)
Produced from Hollywood, the entire production was voiced by primarily west coast actors. Famous Radio and Television promoter Larry Finley produced and syndicated the program to at least some 94 affiliate stations throughout the U.S., Canada and Jamaica. Most local or regional broadcasts were either sustained offerings by an independent affiliate, or were sponsored by spot advertisers ranging over a wide variety of offerings or services. The production didn't stint on talent, as hinted above. No less than Ivan Ditmars provided the music direction and in addition to Herb Lytton as 'Fate', the varying casts included Lurene Tuttle, Larry Dobkin, Hal Sawyer, Gloria Blondell, Frank Albertson, Jerry Hausner, Howard McNear, Peter Leeds, Ken Peters, Daws Butler and William Johnstone. All in all a superb well of talent from which to draw each week. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: June 8, 1948. Program #26. ABC network, KECA, Los Angeles origination, Finley syndication. "Marvin Thomas Entry". Commercials added locally. Book 83, page 947.

The Doctor's Dilemma (Aired March 2, 1954)
As hard as it may be to believe by today's standards, Rocky Fortune was Frank Sinatra's only dramatic Radio program from The Golden Age of Radio as the lead in a recurring role. As a variety guest performer, Sinatra's Radiography goes on and on and on. But this was the program that a great many of the growing number of fans of Sinatra's acting work really wanted to hear. NBC spared no expense to showcase this growing super-star of the 1940s and 1950s, and it shows in both production values and supporting voice talent. Frank Sinatra seemed very comfortable in the role of Rocco Fortunato--'Rocky Fortune'--and the scripts that George Lefferts and Ernest Kinoy wrote for Sinatra made for some fascinating adventures. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: March 2, 1954. "The Doctor's Dilemma " - NBC network origination, AFRTS rebroadcast. A doctor's son has stolen $25,000 worth of narcotics from his father's office. Rocky pretends that he's a blackmailer and lays a trap. See cat. #88919 for a network version of this program Frank Sinatra, Raymond Burr, Norm Sickle (writer), Andrew C. Love (director), Maurice Hart, Jack Carroll, Georgia Ellis, Barney Phillips. 24:51.
