The Black Hand (1953) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
Not a true crime show, as this is drama, but this show features Chuck Morgan, as played by Glen Langen, a very believable news anchor at KOP, a Los Angeles radio station. He is pals with Lieutenant Bill Miggs of the police force, who tips him off to hot crime news. Also in on the capers is Morgan's "Gal Friday", Carol Curtis, played by Adele Jurgens. The three meet all types -- mostly on the shady side of the street. In real life, Glen and Adele were husband and wife, the two marrying in 1949. They had met on the movie set of The Treasure of Monte Cristo. On the show, the repartee between the two is strictly old school and quite enjoyable. The dialogue is solid and makes the most of the plots. Unheralded and left for dead, Stand By for Crime is well worth your time. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: 1952. "The Black Hand"Cheshire and Associates syndication. Music fill for local commercial insert. Chuck Morgan is targeted by The Sniper. He reaches out to an ex-con he once helped. Glenn Langan, Adele Jergens. 24:47. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Special Guest Is Danny Thomas (Aired November 9, 1951)
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. Their last film together was "Hollywood or Bust" (1956). On July 25th of that year the two made their last nightclub appearance together at the Copacabana, exactly ten years to the day since they became a team. THIS EPISODE: November 9, 1951. NBC network. Sponsored by: Dentyne, Chesterfield, Anacin. "Special Guest Is Danny Thomas" and the boys do their version of, "It's The Toast Of The Town." The first tune is, "Whispering." Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Dick Stabile and His Orchestra, Jimmy Wallington (announcer), Danny Thomas, Bonnie Bishop (vocal), Ed Simmons (writer), Norman Lear (writer), Dick Mack (producer, director). 29:41.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Cisco Kid" - According To Law (Aired January 29, 1953)
Here they were, these two Mexican bandits, travelling from sunset to sunset (because that's where they always road off to at the end of each episode) robbing the rich, but I wouldn't say giving it to the poor. At least they did it in a kind and humorous way. It was more a question of the victim being relieved of the heavy burden of his or her riches, rather than having some of their prized possessions taken away from them. Half the fun in the series was listening to Pancho try to explain in his simple Mexican way that the sheriff's posse was hard on their heels and to quote him, "Ceesco, eef they catch up with us, perhaps they weel keel us." At the beginning The Cisco Kid was played by Jackson Beck then later Jack Mather took over the role. THIS EPISODE: January 29, 1953. Program #56. Mutual-Don Lee network origination, Ziv syndication. "According To Law". Commercials added locally. Jack Mather, Harry Lang. 30:49. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Life Of Louis Pasteur (Aired April 13, 1946)
The list of films and actors on Academy Award Theater is very impressive. Bette Davis begins the series in Jezebel, with Ginger Rogers following in Kitty Foyle, and then Paul Muni in The Life of Louis Pasteur. The Informer had to have Victor Mclaglen, and the Maltese Falcon, Humphrey Bogart, Sidney Greenstreet (this movie was his first major motion picutre role) plus Mary Astor for the hat trick. Suspicion starred Cary Grant with Ann Todd doing the Joan Fontaine role, Ronald Coleman in Lost Horizon, and Joan Fontaine and John Lund were in Portrait of Jenny. How Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio were done is something to hear! THIS EPISODE: April 13, 1946. CBS network. "The Story of Louis Pasteur". Sponsored by: Squibb. A dramatization about the great scientist and his fight against ignorance and disease. Paul Muni. 30:14. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
