Mr. Bradley's Heart (Aired November 17, 1950)
The character was invented by the author Frederick Schiller Faust (aka Max Brand). The character began in the film series as a medical intern; after becoming a doctor he was mentored by an older physician, Dr. Leonard Gillespie. After the first ten films, the series eliminated the character of Kildare and focused instead on Gillespie. In the summer of 1949, MGM reunited Lew Ayres and Lionel Barrymore to record the radio series, The Story of Dr. Kildare, scripted by Les Crutchfield, Jean Holloway and others. After broadcasts on WMGM New York from February 1, 1950 to August 3, 1951, the series was syndicated to other stations during the 1950s. The supporting cast included Ted Osborne as hospital administrator Dr. Carough, Jane Webb as nurse Mary Lamont and Virginia Gregg as Nurse Parker, labeled "Nosy Parker" by Gillespie, with appearances by William Conrad, Stacy Harris, Jay Novello, Isabel Jewell and Jack Webb. THIS EPISODE: November 17, 1950. "Mr. Bradley's Heart" - Program #43. WMGM, New York City-Mutual net origination, MGM syndication. Commercials added locally. Mr. Bradley, an overworked businessman, has a badly damaged heart and needs a rare operation. The date is approximate. Lew Ayres, Lionel Barrymore, Les Crutchfield (writer), William P. Rousseau (director), Walter Schumann (composer, conductor), Virginia Gregg, Georgia Ellis, Wilms Herbert, Vic Perrin, Dick Joy (announcer). 26:23. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Fibber Goes To Night School (Aired November 14, 1944)
Fibber McGee and Molly was a popular radio show during the era of classic, old-time radio. It was one of the longest-running comedies in the history of classic radio in the United States. The series premiered on NBC in 1935 and remained popular until its demise in 1959, long after radio had ceased to be the dominant form of entertainment in American popular culture. James "Jim" Jordan (16 November 1896–1 April 1988) and Marian Driscoll (15 April 1898–7 April 1961), were natives of Peoria, Illinois who met in church and married in 1918. The genesis of Fibber McGee and Molly occurred when the small-time husband-and-wife vaudevillians began their third year as Chicago-area radio performers. Two of the shows they did for station WENR beginning in 1927, both written by Harry Lawrence, bore traces of what was to come and rank as one of the earliest forms of situation comedy. THIS EPISODE: November 14, 1944. I>"Fibber Goes To Night School" - NBC network. Sponsored by: Johnson's Wax. Fibber is about to start his first class at night school. Jim Jordan, Marian Jordan, Billy Mills and His Orchestra, The King's Men, Harlow Wilcox, Don Quinn (writer), Shirley Mitchell, Marlin Hurt, Arthur Q. Bryan. 29:09.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Frontier Gentleman" - The Well (Aired June 15, 1958)
1958's Frontier Gentleman wasn't a ground-breaking adult western. That ground had been pulverized both in Radio and Television six years earlier. But Frontier Gentleman's perspective on the rough and tumble Montana and Wyoming Territories of the 1870s was a fascinating twist on the--by then--formulaic adult western. The premise has J.B. Kendall, a cashiered British Cavalry officer who spent most of his military career in the Punjab area of India. He takes a position with the London Times, on assignment to cover the developing frontier of the Montana and Wyoming Territories of America during the 1870s. His portfolio is to transmit first-person accounts of the roaring American frontier, offering insights into that tumultous time of exploration, colonization, warring Indian tribes, and the rampant anarchy still prevalent in most of the frontier towns of the era. The premise would normally sell itself, but may have been too little, too late for its time. Any new Radio western--no matter how novel--was pretty much doomed at the outset during the late 1950s. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: June 15, 1958. CBS network. "The Well". Sustaining. A good story about a cattleman vs. homesteader feud about to become violent, complicated by a small girl at the bottom of a well. The public service announcements have been partially deleted. The program of June 22, 1958 was pre-empted. John Dehner, Vic Perrin, Lawrence Dobkin, Jack Kruschen, Harry Bartell, Virginia Gregg. 23:46. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Serenade Macabre (Aired July 24, 1947)
Crime club literary selections were all the rage during the first half of the 20th century. Doubleday was the first to form a literary Crime Club in 1928. Doubleday's distinctive 'Crime man' (left sidebar) was strategically imprinted on their Doubleday Crime Club selections. The Collins Publishing House in England had their Collins Crime Club launched in 1930, issuing Agatha Christie's first novel, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, as one of their first selections. The Collins Crime Club imprint (left sidebar) announced its Crime Club selections as "The sign of a good detective novel." Eno Fruit Salts, and the Columbia Basic Network joined forces in 1931 to air the Eno Crime Club. The program ran for two years over the Columbia Basic Network and for three years over NBC's Blue Network. During April 1933, the program was renamed Eno Crime Clues. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: July 24, 1947. Mutual network. "Serenade Macabre". Sustaining. A circus triangle story. A murdered lion tamer causes the trouble. Stedman Coles (writer), Raymond Edward Johnson, Joan Tompkins, Cameron Prud'Homme. 28:31. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Strange Death Of Van Dorn (Aired November 13, 1949)
Each episode sees Jordan confronted with a "crime, a mystery, a beautiful woman, or a combination of the three". Precisely why Jordan is in Egypt is left deliberately vague, though he apparently has enemies in St. Louis so can't go back home. Sam Sabaaya (Jay Novello) is the police captain who apprehends the criminals at the end of each adventure. Sabaaya is portrayed as a diligent and competent policeman, usually as Jordan's friend and ally but sometimes as his foil. He is an Egyptian Muslim, is married, and has four children. Two further characters appear in some but not all episodes, Chris and Sergeant Greco. Chris is the bartender at the Café Tambourine, while Greco is one of Sabaaya's underlings. Greco has a particular dislike of Jordan, and invariably tries to make his life difficult, often by arresting him as the chief suspect in whatever crime Jordan is trying to solve. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group and The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: November 13, 1949. CBS Pacific network. "The Strange Death Of Van Dorn". Sponsored by: Del Monte Foods. Van Dorn has indeed died in a strange way. His body was found out in the Sahara desert, frozen to death! Jack Moyles, Jay Novello, Larry Roman (writer), Gomer Cool (writer), Cliff Howell (producer, director), Richard Aurandt (composer, conductor). 29:39. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

A Salute To Politics (Aired March 16, 1948)
In 1934–36, Berle was heard regularly on The Rudy Vallee Hour, and he got much publicity as a regular on The Gillette Original Community Sing, a Sunday night comedy-variety program broadcast on CBS from September 6, 1936 to August 29, 1937. In 1939, he was the host of Stop Me If You've Heard This One with panelists spontaneously finishing jokes sent in by listeners. Three Ring Time, a comedy-variety show sponsored by Ballantine Ale, was followed by a 1943 program sponsored by Campbell's Soups. The audience participation show Let Yourself Go (1944–1945) could best be described as slapstick radio with studio audience members acting out long suppressed urges (often directed at host Berle). Kiss and Make Up, on CBS in 1946, featured the problems of contestants decided by a jury from the studio audience with Berle as the judge. THIS EPISODE: March 16, 1948. NBC network. Sponsored by: Philip Morris. "A Salute To Politics". President Berle in the White House. Frank Gallop (announcer), Milton Berle, Ray Bloch and His Orchestra. 29:08.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Wild Bill Hickock" - Dark Horse Candidate (Aired January 30, 1952)
Wild Bill started on the radio in 1951 as a kids western show. It emphasized the tracking down the bad guys and fighting for the law rather than the shootin, poker playin, rough and tumble Civil War vet, who lies about his life to get good publicity aspects of Wild Bill’s life. 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. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: January 30, 1952. Program #48. Mutual network. "The Dark Horse Candidate". Sponsored by: Kellogg's cereals. Jingles finds himself running for the office of mayor of the town of Jackpot. There's something rotten in the ballot-box! The system cue is added live. Virginia Gregg, Lillian Buyeff, James Nusser, Ken Christy, Guy Madison, Andy Devine, Frederick Shields, David Hire (producer), Richard Aurandt (music), Charles Lyon (announcer), Paul Pierce (director). 25:52. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
