2 Episodes "The Royal Train" (04-29-75) and "Time On My Hands" (02-18-75)
Dad's Army" was a long running British comedy series created and written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft. The idea of a series came to Jimmy Perry when he realised that many people had forgotten about the contribution the Home Guard had made to the British Home Front during the years of the Second World War. Commencing in 1968, "Dad's Army" ran on BBC Television for 9 years with over eighty episodes spread within 10 series. The series is set in a small fictional seaside town called Walmington-on-Sea somewhere on the South Coast of England. "Dad's Army" is also remembered for its first class actors which starred amongst its credits, Arthur Lowe as Captain Mainwaring, John Le Mesurier as Sergeant Arthur Wilson and Clive Dunn as Lance Corporal Jack Jones. In May 1940, Sir Anthony Eden makes his historic speech calling for men under and over the age of active service in the armed forces to form a local defence corps. In Walmington, the Local Bank manager George Mainwaring set's up the town's Local Defence Volunteers,with the assistance of his Bank Clerk, Arthur Wilson and the Local Butcher, Jack Jones. The LDV later become known as the Home Guard or affectionately (to the TV audience) "Dad's Army."

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Wild Bill Hickock" - The Monsterous Toothache (04-09-52)
The show is in the tradition of the Lone Ranger and the Cisco Kid. Guy Madison starred as Bill with Andy Devine as his sidekick, Jingles. (Now there’s a name you want to go through Hollywood with.) This Wild Bill Hickock was quick with his fists and a quip, but Jingles (dear god that nickname) got all his glory by using his immense girth to fight the bad guys. Jingles if you couldn’t tell was the comedic element in the series. And what is it with overweight sidekicks in westerns? See Cisco Kid’s partner, the jolly and rotund Pancho. Give the horses a break. The radio program lasted until 1954. The television show was started at the same time in 1951 and lasted until 1958. Also Wild Bill was portrayed by Gary Cooper in the 1936 movie, The Plainsman. Wild Bill has shown up in various other movies and television shows, most recently in the show Deadwood on HBO. THIS EPISODE: April 9, 1952. Program #68. Mutual network. "The Monstrous Toothache". Sponsored by: Kellogg's Sugar Corn Pops. Jingles gets a toothache, and that leads to a murderer with a drill! The system cue is added live. Paul Pierce (director), David Hire (producer), Richard Aurandt (music), Charles Lyon (announcer), Larry Hayes (writer), Virginia Gregg, Guy Madison, Andy Devine, Ken Christy, Jess Kirkpatrick, Jeffrey Silver, Jack Moyles. 25:28.

The Deadly Doll (Aired November 23, 1948)
John Dunning called Big Town "perhaps the most famous series of reporter dramas." Premiering over CBS Radio, the early series (there were two) starred the Hollywood actor Edward G. Robinson as Steve Wilson along with Clair Trevor as his sidekick and Society editor, Lorelei Kilbourne. The show was initially created around these two actors, though Trevor was then a young budding actress appearing in movies as well as radio. Producer-Director-Writer Jerry McGill had been a newspaperman and wrote the series about a crusading managing editor of the Illustrated Press. McGill took his show to heart writing stories about juvenile delinquency, drunk driving and racism, though the show was at worst melodramatic at best poignant. Hard-nosed editor, Wilson, as played by Robinson would get the story no matter what it takes. Though sometimes over the top, Robinson was excellent in his role. THIS EPISODE: November 23, 1948. NBC network. "The Deadly Doll". Sponsored by: Lifebuoy Soap, Rinso. Steve and Lorelei find a corpse in a cheap hotel and a six-foot blonde murderess. Edward Pawley, Fran Carlon. 29:39. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index. >BR>

A Birthday Gift For Sapphire (Aired March 12, 1946)
Amos 'n' Andy was a situation comedy popular in the United States from the 1920s through the 1950s. The show began as one of the first radio comedy serials, written and voiced by Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll and originating from station WMAQ in Chicago, Illinois. After the series was first broadcast in 1928, it grew in popularity and became a huge influence on the radio serials that followed. Amos 'n' Andy creators Gosden and Correll were white actors familiar with minstrel traditions. They met in Durham, North Carolina in 1920, and by the fall of 1925, they were performing nightly song-and-patter routines on the Chicago Tribune's station WGN. THIS EPISODE: March 12, 1946.

The William A Davis Case (Aired April 5, 1946)
I Deal in Crime ran for almost two years on ABC network radio and starred the very capable radio and Hollywood actor, William Gargan. In this, one of his many PI radio series (he’s best known, of course, for his role as Martin Kane), Gargan played Ross Dolan, described as a veteran detective who returned to his sleuthing job after his WW II service as a sailor. Or as Dolan puts it, “a hitch in Uncle Sugar’s Navy.” THIS EPISODE: April 5, 1946. "The William A Davis Case" - ABC network. Sustaining. William A. Davis ("If You Please") hires Ross Dolan to find his missing daughter. The story has some nice plot twists, but Ross Dolan is just too tough to believe. William Gargan, Skitch Henderson (composer, conductor), William Conrad, Ted Hediger (writer), Leonard Reeg (director), Dresser Dahlstead (announcer). 29:40. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Perfect Script (Aired February 13, 1947)
When it comes to The Hall of Fantasy, there are some mysteries that persist to this day. Maybe that's appropriate, because it claimed to be "the series of radio dramas dedicated to the supernatural, the unusual, and the unknown." One mystery that remains unknown is who the announcer actually was. His lines were so over-the-top, maybe he wished to remain anonymous. But it's this same dead serious approach to monsters, horror, and the supernatural that makes this series so much fun to listen to in a modern context. Despite this campy dimension to the program, do not assume that the series wasn't scary. Many episodes were rather frightening. THIS EPISODE: February 13, 1947. Mutual network. Commercials deleted. An insane radio producer entices a script writer to his isolated beach house to write "The Perfect Script." Drugs and insanity await him. Robert Olsen (writer), Richard Thorne (performer, producer, director), Carl Grayson, Beth Colter, Nelson Hall, Earl Donaldson (music). 26:31. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Hermit Of The Hills aka: Snowbound (Aired May 9, 1946)
The gimmick in Rogue's Gallery was the presence of an alter ego, "Eugor," who arrived in the middle of the show to give Rogue enough information for his final deduction. Eugor was a state of mind, achieved when Rogue was knocked unconcious. Eugor would appear cackling like the host of Hermit's Cave and imparted some vital information the hero had overlooked. Rogue would then awaken with a vague idea of what to do next. Rogue's Gallery also starred different actors as Rogue, in later incarnations of the series, but Richard Powell was the most popular. This series preceded Richard Powell's most famous series, Richard Diamond, Private Detective. Rogue trailed lovely blondes and protected witnesses in the new tough guy persona of Dick Powell. This was the transition series for Powell in his quest to be recognized as an actor rather than a singer. It had some of the same cute elements that would make Richard Diamond a high spot four years later. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group and The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: May 9, 1946. Mutual network. "The Hermit Of The Hills". Sponsored by: Fitch's Shampoo, Fitch's Hair Tonic. A beautiful woman and her suspicious husband lead Rogue to yet another hit on the head, a bullet in the shoulder and a toss off a cliff. Then, the blizzard starts! The system cue has been deleted or is added live. Dick Powell, Dee Englebach (producer, director), Ray Buffum (writer), Jim Doyle (announcer), Leith Stevens (composer, conductor), Peter Leeds. 29:48.

The Sleeper (Aired February 4, 1953)
I Was a Communist for the FBI was an American espionage thriller radio series with 78 episodes syndicated by Ziv to more than 600 stations in 1952-54. Made without FBI cooperation, the series was adapted from the book by undercover agent Matt Cvetic, who was portrayed by Dana Andrews.The series was crafted to warn people about the threat of Communist subversion of American society. The tone of the show is very jingoistic and ultra-patriotic. Communists are evil incarnate and the FBI can do no wrong. As a relic of the Joe McCarthy era, this show is a time capsule of American society during the Second Red Scare. THIS EPISODE: February 4, 1953. Program #42. ZIV Syndication. "The Sleeper". Commercials added locally. The wife of a well-known congressman is blackmailed by the Party. The date is subject to correction. Dana Andrews, Truman Bradley (announcer). 27:22.

Riverdale High Football Tickets (Aired November 18, 1949)
Archibald "Archie" Andrews debuted in Pep Comics 22 (December, 1941), where he was nicknamed Chick; Reggie often describes Archie as carrot-head. Decades later, Archie is still a redheaded 17-year-old. He lives in Riverdale, attends Riverdale High and is the only son of Mary Andrews and mid-level business executive Fred Andrews. His earlier life is revealed in the "Little Archie" stories when he had a dog named Spotty. Archie is a typical small-town teenager. Generous, well-mannered, but clumsy, he is genuinely liked by many of his friends. Archie goes crazy when he sees an attractive girl, but mainly dates Veronica Lodge and Betty Cooper. He has taken various employment, but despite the best intentions, often clumsily breaks things, coming in conflict with Veronica's father Hiram Lodge and Riverdale High's principal, Waldo Weatherbee. As the lead singer of The Archies, Archie performs with Betty, Veronica, Reggie, and Jughead. The Andrews family originated in Scotland, with great-grandfather "Andy Andrews" immigrating to the United States and befriending Moose Mason's Russian ancestor, who was emigrating at the same time. Archie has been depicted wearing the traditional kilt of his ancestors and playing bagpipes (but not very well).
