The Slyes rented a small house near Mary. Leonard and his father immediately found employment as truck drivers for a highway construction project.

The economic hardship of the Great Depression had followed them west, and the Slyes soon found themselves among the economic refugees traveling from job to job picking fruit and living in worker campsites. (He would later read John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath and marvel at its accuracy.) One day Andy Slye heard of a shoe factory hiring in Los Angeles and asked Leonard to join him in applying there for work. Leonard, having seen the joy that his guitar and singing had brought to the destitute around the campfires, hesitantly told his father that he was going to pursue a living in music. With his father's blessing, he and cousin Stanley Slye went to Los Angeles and sought musical engagements as The Slye Brothers. THIS EPISODE: November 30, 1951. NBC network. "The Map".

The Jewel Mystery Of Channel Island (2 Parts COMPLETE) Aired September 11, 1940
After his father was killed by a gangster's bullet, young Dan Garrett joined the New York Police Department, but soon tired of the slow pace and red tape of police work. With the help of his friend and mentor, pharmacist and drug-store proprietor Dr. Franz, Dan acquired a costume of bullet-proof chain-mail-like cellulose material, and began a second life, fighting crime as The Blue Beetle. His calling card was a small beetle-shaped marker that he left in conspicuous places to alert criminals to his presence, using their fear of his crime fighting reputation as a weapon against them. For this purpose he also used a "Beetle Signal" flashlight. The Blue Beetle's reputation was not his only weapon -- he carried a revolver in a blue holster on his belt, and was sometimes shown wearing a multi-pouched belt after the style set by Batman. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: September 11, 1940. Program #47. Fox Features syndication. "The Jewel Mystery Of Channel Island" Part one.

The Bloodstained Coin (Aired October 26, 1937)
Calling All Cars was one of the earliest police shows on the air. It ran from November 29, 1933 through September 8, 1939. It’s sponsor was the Rio Grande Oil Company, which is why the show only ran in areas where Rio Grande "cracked" gasoline was sold. The sponsor promoted its "close ties" with police departments in Arizona and Southern California, urging listeners to buy its product for "police car performance". As shows of this nature do, it dealt with tracking killers and robbers, and with a recap of the justice which was enforced. The writer and director was William N. Robson. Calling All Cars episodes were dramatized true crime stories that were not only introduced by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department but were true life crime stories of the LAPD. THIS EPISODE: October 26, 1937. Program #205. CBS Pacific network (Don Lee network). "The Bloodstained Coin". Sponsored by: Rio Grande Oil. The murder of Theodore Wallman has taken place in Leona Canyon. Jesse Rosenquist (dispatcher), A. C. Dowall (? host, from the Sheriff's office of Los Angles county), Charles Frederick Lindsley (narrator). 29:19. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Spring Housecleaning (Aired May 1, 1949)
As both Phil and Alice were known singers, there were two musical numbers in each show, and they were always for real, except some of Phil's, which were for laughs. But Phil's band gave much more than music to the show. Frankie Remley was the band's left handed guitar player, with a sardonic sense of humor out of left field. The character was first done on The Jack Benny Show, and, of course, now on a show about the band itself, Frankie was even more obnoxious. Famed radio actor Elliott Lewis played him with relish. In fact, later in the run they actually started calling the character Elliott! (Elliott Lewis changes his name on the show from Frankie Remly to Elliott because Harris stopped leading Jack Benny's band--so he wasn't connected to Remly any more. THIS EPISODE: May 1, 1949. "Spring Housecleaning" - NBC network. Sponsored by: Rexall. Phil sings, "Everybody Dances" ("Silas Lee From Tennessee"). Phil and Remley begin a Spring cleanup project and wind up with Alice's living room looking like a minstrel show! Alice bloops a line and Phil pounces. Alice Faye, Anne Whitfield, Bill Forman (announcer), Dick Chevillat (writer), Elliott Lewis, Jeanine Roos, Phil Harris, Ray Singer (writer), Robert North, Walter Scharf and His Orchestra, Walter Tetley, Griff Barnett (Rexall druggist). 29:34.

The Nightmare Murder Case (Aired November 22, 1949)
Philo Vance was the detective creation of S. S. Van Dine first published in the mid 1920s. Vance, in the original books, is an intellectual so highly refined he seems he might be ghostwritten by P. G. Wodehouse. Take this quote from The Benson Murder Case, 1924, as Vance pontificates in his inimitable way: "That's your fundamental error, don't y' know. Every crime is witnessed by outsiders, just as is every work of art. The fact that no one sees the criminal, or the artist, actu'lly at work, is wholly incons'quential." THIS EPISODE: November 22, 1949. Program #72. ZIV Syndication. "The Nightmare Murder Case". Commercials added locally. A woman tells Vance that she's had two dreams, both of which came true! Her third dream is that she's going to kill a man! Jackson Beck, Joan Alexander (doubles), Mandel Kramer, Ian Martin (doubles), Frederick W. Ziv (producer), Jeanne K. Harrison (director), Henry Sylvern (organist), George Petrie, S. S. Van Dine (creator). 25:49. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
