The Trenches Aired May 22, 1980)
The Sears Radio Theater Series premiered on Monday 02/05/79 and offered a different genre each weekday night. Each genre was hosted by a different celebrity. The program was produced on Paramount's Stage F in Hollywood. These first 130 programs were broadcast over a six month period and then rebroadcast over the following six months. From 02/14/80 to 12/19/81 this series was heard again, this time over Mutual, as The Mutual Radio Theater. This was clearly one of the last big attempts to produce radio programming, with many of radio’s best talents, the way radio was heard in its “golden days.” Despite budget and talent, it just wasn’t to be. Hosts: Lorne Greene on Mondays (Westerns), Andy Griffith on Tuesdays (Comedy), Vincent Price on Wednesday (Mystery), Cicely Tyson on Thursday (Drama – Love & Hate), Richard Widmark on Friday (Drama – Adventure.

Murder In Celluloid (Aired July 2, 1946)
The Casebook of Gregory Hood, starring Gale Gordon in the title role, took over where Sherlock Holmes had left off. Sponsored by Petri wine, it used the same "weekly visit" format and the same team of Anthony Boucher and Dennis Green that had written The New Adventured of Sherlock Holmes. Gregory Hood was modelled after true-life San Francisco importer Richard Gump, and many of the stories revolve around a mystery surrounding some particular imported treasure. Hood's sidekick Sanderson "Sandy" Taylor was played by Bill Johnstone. The show aired from June, 1946 through August, 1950. There were an additional couple of shows aired in October 1951. Hood and Sanderson were played in later episodes by Elliott Lewis and Howard McNear, respectively. THIS EPISODE: July 2, 1946. Mutual network. "Murder In Celluloid". Sponsored by: Petri Wines. A movie actress is found strangled in her dressing room. What is the connection to the map drawn by a child actress on the same movie? Sheila Graham appears as a diner in a restaurant (and plugs her new series on Mutual). Gale Gordon, Harry Bartell (announcer), Dean Fosler (composer, conducto), Denis Green (writer), Anthony Boucher (writer). 28:40. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Contraband (Aired August 28, 1948)
The Man Called X started over Radio with the 1944 CBS Summer replacement run for Lux Radio Theatre, comprising a total of eight episodes. The only circulating exemplar from the first run is contained within the AFRS Globe Theatre canon of transcriptions. So, yet again, we are indebted to the incredible output of AFRS and AFRTS transcriptions over the years in preserving some of Radio's rarest exemplars from The Golden Age of Radio. But if one compares that circulating episode to the spot ad for the summer run in the sidebar, one sees the program promoted as a comedy-mystery. The 1944 CBS Summer season finale, Murder, Music and A Blonde Madonna, gives some credence to the way CBS promoted this first run. Starring Herbert Marshall as Ken Thurston, a private operative, with Han Conried as Egon Zellschmidt in this first incarnation of Ken Thurston's nemesis, and Mary Jane Croft appearing in the role of Ken's love interest, Nancy Bessington, a reporter and Thurston's erstwhile fiance. We can only interpolate from what we've already turned up for this shortest run of The Man Called X, but it would appear that Hans Conried and Mary Jane Croft may have been regulars co-stars throughout that first season.

Snow White & The 7 Gangsters (Aired April 24, 1938)
Benny came to radio on The Canada Dry Program, beginning May 2, 1932, on the NBC Blue Network and continuing there for six months until October 26, moving the show to CBS on October 30. With Ted Weems leading the band, Benny stayed on CBS until January 26, 1933. Arriving at NBC on March 17, Benny did The Chevrolet Program until April 1, 1934. He continued with sponsors General Tires, Jell-O and Grape Nuts. Lucky Strike was the radio sponsor from 1944 to the mid-1950s. The show returned to CBS on January 2, 1949, as part of CBS president William S. Paley's notorious "raid" of NBC talent in 1948-49. There it stayed for the remainder of its radio run, which ended on May 22, 1955. CBS aired reruns of old radio episodes from 1956 to 1958 as The Best of Benny. THIS EPISODE: April 24, 1938. Red network. Sponsored by: Jell-O. The cast does its version of, "Snow White and The Seven Gangsters." Shlepperman is cast as "Prince Charming!" Kenny sings, "Our Song." Mary sings a duet with Shlepperman called, "Some Day My Prince Will Come!" The cast does a very clever parody of the Disney cartoon. Mary gets a long laugh when a birdie gives her a Bronx cheer. Jack Benny, Don Wilson, Phil Harris and His Orchestra, Mary Livingstone, Kenny Baker, Andy Devine, Sam Hearn, Wally Baker, Harry Baldwin, Ed Beloin (writer, performer: doubles), Bill Morrow (writer), Blanche Stewart. 29:36.

Sad Cypress Part 2 0f 2 (1973)
Poirot was apparently born in Spa, Belgium and, based on the conjecture that he was thirty at the time of his retirement from the Belgian police force at the time of the outbreak of the First World War, it is suggested that he was born in the mid 1880s. This is all extremely vague, as Poirot is thought to be an old man in his dotage even in the early Poirot novels, and in An Autobiography Christie admitted that she already imagined him to be an old man in 1920. (At the time, of course, she had no idea she would be going on writing Poirot books for many decades to come.) Much of the suggested dating for Poirot's age is therefore post-rationalisation on the part of those attempting to make sense of his extraordinarily long career. Between the first and second world wars, Poirot traveled all over Europe and the Middle East investigating crimes and murders. Most of his cases happened during this period and he was at the height of his powers at this point in his life.

Sad Cypress Part 1 0f 2 (1973)
Dame Agatha Christie DBE (15 September 1890 – 12 January 1976), was an English crime writer of novels, short stories and plays. She also wrote romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but is best remembered for her 80 detective novels and her successful West End theatre plays. Her works, particularly those featuring detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple, have given her the title the 'Queen of Crime' and made her one of the most important and innovative writers in the development of the genre. Christie has been referred to by the Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling writer of books of all time and the best-selling writer of any kind, along with William Shakespeare. Only the Bible is known to have outsold her collected sales of roughly four billion copies of novels. THIS EPISODE: 1973. "Sad Cypress" is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie and first published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club in March 1940 and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company later in the same year. The UK edition retailed at eight shillings and threepence (8/3) – the first price rise for a UK Christie edition since her 1921 debut - and the US edition retailed at $2.00. The novel is notable for being the first courtroom drama in the Hercule Poirot series. The novel is written in three parts: in the first place an account, largely from the perspective of the subsequent defendant, Elinor Carlisle, of the death of her aunt, Laura Welman, and the subsequent death of the victim, Mary Gerrard; secondly an account of Poirot's investigation; and, thirdly, a sequence in court, again mainly from Elinor's dazed perspective. 38:13.

I Know Your Secret (Aired April 10, 1950)
Broadcast on NBC, Nightbeat ran from 1949 to 1952 and starred Frank Lovejoy as Randy Stone, a tough and streetwise reporter who worked the nightbeat for the Chicago Star looking for human interest stories. He met an assortment of people, most of them with a problem, many of them scared, and sometimes he was able to help them, sometimes he wasn’t. It is generally regarded as a ‘quality’ show and it stands up extremely well. Frank Lovejoy (1914-1962) isn’t remembered today, but he was a powerful and believable actor with a strong delivery, and his portrayal of Randy Stone as tough guy with humanity was perfect. The scripts were excellent, given that they had to pack in a lot in a short time, and there was a good supporting cast, orchestra, and sound effects. THIS EPISODE: April 10, 1950. NBC network. Sustaining. Randy Stone fishes Wanda Rhodes out of the river. She had been receiving unsigned notes, all of which say, "I Know Your Secret!" Betty Lou Gerson, Colleen Collins, Frank Lovejoy, Frank Worth (composer, conductor), Jeff Corey, Joan Banks, Joel Hunt (writer), Larry Marcus (writer), Martha Wentworth, Warren Lewis (director), Will Wright. 34:14.

Laura Shields Case (Aired January 21, 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 series was written by Ted Hediger and directed by Leonard Reeg. The show's announcer was Dresser Dahlstead and Skitch Henderson (later to win fame on television) handled the music. The show began in January 1946 and ran as a 30 minute show, first on Monday nights but for the last eleven months on Saturday evenings. It ended in October 1947. THIS EPISODE: January 21, 1946. ABC network. "The Laura Shields Case." Sustaining. Possibly the first show of the series. William Gargan as detective Ross Dolan. Laura Shields hires Dolan to be her bodyguard. He finds plenty of murder. Dresser Dahlstead (announcer), Leonard Reeg (director), Skitch Henderson (composer, conductor), Ted Hediger (director), William Gargan. 30:43.

A Date For Dennis Day (Aired May 2, 1944)
When the AFRN rebroadcast those episodes for U.S. servicemen during World War II, the announcer referred to Duffy's Tavern. Radio's Duffy's Tavern didn't translate well to film or television. Burrows and Matt Brooks collaborated on the screenplay for the 1945 film, Ed Gardner's Duffy's Tavern, in which Archie (with regulars Eddie and Finnegan) was surrounded by a throng of Paramount Pictures stars playing themselves, including Robert Benchley, William Bendix, Eddie Bracken, Bing Crosby, Cass Daley, Brian Donlevy, Paulette Goddard, Betty Hutton, Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake and Dorothy Lamour. The film's plot involves a war-displaced record manufacturer whose staff — those not sent off to war — drown their sorrows at Duffy's on credit, while the company owner tries to find ways around the price controls and war attrition that threaten to put him out of business. The movie was a box-office disappointment. THIS EPISODE: May 2, 1944. Program #50. "A Date For Dennis Day" - Blue network origination, AFRS rebroadcast. Archie tries to get a date for guest Dennis Day. Ed Gardner, Dennis Day, Helen Lynd, Peter Van Steeden and His Orchestra. 30:48. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Shock (Aired August 21, 1954)
Before the "Reality TV", there was "Reality Radio" and Night Watch was there. This show is a straight crime documentary with no music, sound effects, or actors. Police reporter Don Reid rode in a prowl car on the night shift with officers from the Culver City, California police department. While wearing a hidden microphone, he captures the sounds and voices of real life drama. From the worried child to the hardened criminal, their stories come through loud and clear. The names were changed to protect identities, but everything else in this gripping series is real. THIS EPISODE: August 21, 1954. "Shock" - CBS network. Sustaining. The first call is about an escaped woman, referred to as a "mental case," who may become violent. Donn Reed (police recorder), W. N. Hildebrand (Chief of Police), Sterling Tracy (producer, director), Jim Headlock (producer), Ron Perkins (technical advisor). 27:12. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
