Reefers By The Acre (Aired June 25, 1936)
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. THIS EPISODE: June 25, 1936. Program #135. CBS Pacific network (Don Lee net). "Reefers By The Acre". Sponsored by: Rio Grande Oil ("Junior Detective Outfit" premium). The program opens with an address by a police chief originating at radio station KFBK.

Escort Of Death (Part Two of Two) Aired May 1, 1952
Mars was a desert, Venus a jungle, and the asteroids a haunt of space pirates, but at least planets circled suns and there was no air in space. Contrast this with Twilight Zone, years later, where people could live on asteroids wearing ordinary clothes, or Lost in Space, years after that, where a spaceship could be passing "Jupiter and Andromeda" at the same time. Before Star Trek, Tom Corbett — Space Cadet was the most scientifically accurate series on television, in part due to official science advisor Willy Ley, and later due to Frankie Thomas. Thomas read up on science and everyone on the set turned to him for advice on matters scientific. THIS EPISODE: May 1, 1952. "Escort Of Death" (Part Two) - ABC network, WJZ, New York aircheck. Sponsored by: Kellogg's Pep, Kellogg's Raisin Bran, cut-outs premium. Tom and Manning become fugitives from the Solar Guard.

The Matchmaker (Aired October 24, 1948)
As the series progressed and the boys grew up, storylines involving various characters were introduced. Many of the series storylines were taken from the Nelsons' real life. When the real David and Rick got married, to June Blair and Kristin Harmon respectively, their wives joined the cast of Ozzie and Harriet, and the marriages were written into the series. (What was seldom written into the series was Ozzie's profession; mention of his lengthy and successful band-leading career was infrequent.) By the mid 1960s, America's social climate was changing, and the Nelsons' all American nuclear family epitomized the 1950s values and ideals that were quickly becoming a thing of the past. THIS EPISODE: October 24, 1948. "Matchmaker" - NBC network. Sponsored by: International Silver. While Harriet plays matchmaker, Ozzie tries to undo the damage. Ozzie Nelson, Harriet Hilliard, Verne Smith (announcer), John Brown, Janet Waldo, Henry Blair, Tommy Bernard, Lurene Tuttle, Donald Woods, Billy May (composer, conductor). 29:22.

During this period, when radio was dominant and filled with a variety of formats and genres, people regularly tuned into their favorite radio programs. In fact, according to a 1947 C. E. Hooper survey, 82 out of 100 Americans were found to be radio listeners. Theatrer 10:30 was a Canadian Old Time Radio show. The date of the broadcast for the episodes is generally unknown.
