Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Frontier Gentleman" Powder River Kid (Aired April 6, 1958)
Television was already in reruns of the twenty to thirty western adventures that proliferated on TV during the 1950s. And it was stiff competition, to be sure. Gunsmoke had achieved off the chart ratings for years, and Have Gun, Will Travel was very much a thinking person's western. This takes nothing away from either John Dehner or Ben Wright's performances in the least. They were consistently top notch. But we'd venture to say that Frontier Gentleman is heard today by far more listeners than ever heard it when it was first broadcast. Be that as it may, it's the listeners of today that matter now. Frontier Gentleman consistently offers a wonderful variation on the western theme. Antony Ellis' scripts are well devised, historically accurate, and fully developed, given the imposed 30-minute formula. THIS EPISODE: April 6, 1958. CBS network. "The Powder River Kid". Sustaining. The Powder River Kid has been shot, gangrene has set in and he doesn't have long to live. What about the reward? John Dehner, Joseph Kearns, Paula Winslowe, Lawrence Dobkin, Barney Phillips, Antony Ellis (creator, producer, director), Wilbur Hatch (composer, conductor), John Wald (announcer), Jerry Goldsmith (theme composer). 24:33.

Marooned With Death (2-Episodes - COMPLETE) Aired May 13, 1952
Tom Corbett is the main character in a series of Tom Corbett — Space Cadet stories that were depicted in television, radio, books, comic books, comic strips, coloring books, punch-out books and View-Master reels in the 1950s. The stories followed the adventures of Tom Corbett, Astro, and Roger Manning, cadets at the Space Academy as they train to become members of the elite Solar Guard. The action takes place at the Academy in classrooms and bunkroom, aboard their training ship the rocket cruiser Polaris, and on alien worlds, both within our solar system and in orbit around nearby stars. The Tom Corbett universe partook of pseudo-science, not equal to the standards of accuracy set by John W. Campbell in the pages of Astounding. And yet, by the standards of the day, it was much more accurate than most media science fiction. TODAY'S SHOW: May 13, 1952. "Marooned With Death" - ABC network, WJZ, New York aircheck. Sponsored by: Kellogg's Pep, Kellogg's Raisin Bran. The cadets start on a rescue mission to the planet Del Porte and are nearly drowned by a tidal wave. Al Markim, Drex Hines (director), Edward Bryce, Frank Thomas Jr., Jackson Beck (announcer), Jan Merlin, Jon Gart (organist). 47:00. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Doris Kane Case (Aired July 5, 1953)
NBC 30 minutes Sunday at 9:30PM.Cast Paul Frees, James Edwards, Jester Hairston, Jay Loughlin, Jonathan Hole, Mady Norman, Don Brinkley (writer), Michael Samoge (? music), Warren Lewis (script supervisor), Homer Canfield (director), John Wald (announcer). Had a texture and sound not unlike Dragnet, indeed the influence was realized throughout the show. These were true stories of Crime and Punishment, the obvious difference that Dragnet began with the crime while Confession unfolded in reverse order, from the end. Confession was less noisy, it's theme was played on a single piano, but there was still the deadpan dialogue, the thief or killer giving his confession with an air of resignation and defeat. The criminal thus became a stream-of-consciousness narrator, with the action frequently cutting away into drama. "Names were changed to protect the legal rights of the subject" THIS EPISODE: July 5, 1953. NBC network. "The Case Of Doris Kane". Sustaining. Not auditioned. I don't care what she confesses to, just shut up that damn beeper! The system cue has been deleted. Joyce McCluskey, Paul Frees, Virginia Gregg, Sam Edwards, Stacy Harris, Marvin Miller, Warren Lewis (script supervisor), Michael Samoge (music), Homer Canfield (director), John Wald (announcer). 29:31.

The Case Of The Spectrograph (Aired December 3, 1950)
The show was at the top of the list among programs that had developed the technique of sound effects to a fine art. Each program was written with the sound in mind, not so much sound for sound's sake, but to advance the plot, add color or create atmosphere. Two sound effects men spent a reported ten hours in rehearsal for each broadcast, in addition to the time spent by the actors. East coast actors House Jameson, Don MacLaughlin, Phil Sterling and Lawson Zerbe [MBS] (Zerbe appeared as both David Harding and Harry Peters) were the only four actors to ever assume the role of David Harding--Jameson for the first two episodes only, replaced by Don MacLaughlin for the remainder of its twelve year run. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: December 3, 1950. NBC network. "The Case Of The Spectrograph". Sustaining. The system cue has been deleted. Don MacLaughlin, Phillips H. Lord (producer), Paula Thompson (writer), Marx B. Loeb (director), Mandel Kramer, Lionel Ricou (announcer). 28:46. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Operation Fifty (Aired January 6, 1951)
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. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: January 6, 1951. "Operation Fifty" - NBC network. Sponsored by: RCA Victor, Anacin. The story of "The Himmler Plates," the most important fifty-dollar bills in the world. The trail leads to Montevideo, Uruguay. Herbert Marshall, Leon Belasco, Joan Banks, Maggie Morely, Will Wright, Stan Waxman, Daws Butler, Lou Merrill, J. Richard Kennedy (producer), Felix Mills (composer, conductor), Sidney Marshall (writer), Jack Latham (announcer). 25:13. Show Notes From The Digital Deli.

The Thanksgiving Dinner (Aired November 20, 1951)
Life with Luigi was a radio comedy-drama series which began September 21, 1948 on CBS. The story concerned Italian immigrant Luigi Basco, and his experiences as an immigrant in Chicago. Many of the shows take place at the US citizenship classes that Luigi attends with other immigrants from different countries, as well as trying to fend off the repeated advances of the morbidly-obese daughter of his landlord/sponsor. Luigi was played by J. Carrol Naish, an Irish-American. Naish continued in the role on the short-lived television version in 1952, and was later replaced by Vito Scotti. With a working title of The Little Immigrant, Life with Luigi was created by Cy Howard, who earlier had created the hit radio comedy, My Friend Irma. The show was often seen as the Italian counterpart to the radio show The Goldbergs, which chronicled the experience of Jewish immigrants in New York. THIS EPISODE: November 20, 1951. "The Thanksgiving Dinner" - CBS network. Sponsored by: Wrigley's Spearmint Chewing Gum. It's Thanksgiving, and Luigi misses having a family to celebrate with. America will be his guest. J.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Wild Bill Hickock" - The Voice Of Echo Canyon (Aired November 11, 1951)
Wild Bill Hickock was a real life Civil War soldier, sharpshooter, gunfighter and lawman of the Old West. He was an adventurer who had many brushes with death, but they were greatly exaggerated by the stories told about him in various media. His fame lives on, not so much for his real life tales, but because he was the first dime novel hero, he appears in various movies, television shows, and this old time radio program. His tale comes to a sad, yet iconoclastic end. He was killed while playing a round of poker. His hand was aces and eights. For those who know poker, that’s known as the ‘Dead Man’s Hand.’ Wild Bill started on the radio in 1951 as a kids western show. THIS EPISODE: November 11, 1951. Program #33. Mutual network. "The Voice Of Echo Canyon". Sponsored by: Kellogg's Corn Pops. A weird laughter off the canyon walls and a carpet for cattle. This ingenious robbery plan is foiled by Wild Bill and Jingles. The system cue is added live, the date is approximate. Guy Madison, Andy Devine, Charles Lyon (announcer), Richard Aurandt (music), David Hire (producer), Paul Pierce (director), Cliff Arquette, Jean Vander Pyl, Ken Christy, Hal Girard, Jack Moyles. 24:58.

The ISA, or International Space Authority, is a governing body of space development and exploration. Organized by all earth nations, it advances humans into deep space. Their base is officially named "The Arthur C. Clarke Astronomical Observatory" or "Starlab."

It was performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, comprising a 57 piece Westminster Sinfonia in Wembley, England. Many of the realistic sound effects were recorded in four different sessions on an oil tanker in a San Pedro dry dock.
