Wine Of Freedom (Aired October 15, 1950)
Based on the book, Cloak and Dagger: The Secret Story of the O.S.S. by Corey Ford and Alistair McBain, the Radio rendition of these fascinating stories promised to keep any listener perched on the edge of their seat. Apart from describing the book upon which the new adventure series was based, the above is just about all the fanfare that was associated with the roll-out of NBC's only espionage program of the year. It was also one of the few solo productions that Wyllis Cooper undertook for NBC. It was also Cooper's first collaboration with British crime journalist Percy Hoskins, who would work with Cooper yet again on NBC's WHItehall-1212 a year hence. The combination of Hoskin's unfailingly accurate research and Cooper's lively, fast-paced writing and direction proved to be an excellent underpinning for an espionage adventure drama based on factual events. The Office of Strategic Services--the progenitor of our Central Intelligence Agency--was one of American History's most colorful and compelling World War II intelligence gathering efforts. It was also, quite understandably, one of our most secret undertakings. Given that backdrop it's very instructive that during the run up to the Cold War years, NBC would attempt to air a fact-based espionage anthology.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Roy Rogers Show" - The Wailing Gold Mine (Aired October 30, 1952)
Roy Rogers was born to Andrew ("Andy") and Mattie (Womack) Slye in Cincinnati, Ohio, where his family lived in a tenement building on 2nd Street. (Riverfront Stadium was constructed at this location in 1970 and Rogers would later joke that he had been born at second base.) Dissatisfied with his job and city life, Andy Slye and his brother Will built a 12-by-50-foot houseboat from salvage lumber, and, in July 1912, the Slye family floated on the Ohio River towards Portsmouth, Ohio. Desiring a more stable existence in Portsmouth, the Slyes purchased land on which to build a home, but the flood of 1913 allowed them to move the houseboat to their property and continue living in it on dry land. THIS EPISODE: October 30, 1952. "The Wailing Gold Mine"NBC network. Sponsored by: Post Cereals (pop-out trading cards premium). Dale buys a map of a gold mine from "Nugget Norman." It leads to, The Wailing Gold Mine. Art Ballinger (announcer), Art Rush (producer), Ben Welden, Cliff Arquette, Dale Evans, Fran Van Hartesfeldt (writer), Frank Hemingway, Milton Charles, Pat Brady, Roy Rogers. 26:21.

The Tiger & Brad Ferguson (Aired March 10, 1954)
Crime Classics was a United States radio docudrama which aired as a sustaining series over CBS from June 15, 1953, to June 30, 1954. Created, produced, and directed by radio actor/director Elliott Lewis, the program was a historical true crime series, examining crimes and murders from the past. It grew out of Lewis' personal interest in famous murder cases and took a documentary-like approach to the subject, carefully recreating the facts, personages and feel of the time period. Comparatively little dramatic license was taken with the facts and events, but the tragedy was leavened with humor, expressed largely through the narration. The crimes dramatized generally covered a broad time and place frame from ancient Greece to late 19th-century America. Each episode in the series was co-written by Morton Fine and David Friedkin, in consultation with Lewis, although the scripting process was more a matter of research, as the stories were "adapted from the original court reports and newspaper accounts" or from the works of historians.

My Adventure In Norfork (1957) *The Exact Date Is Unknown,
ABC Mystery Time was hosted by Don Dowd and starred Sir Laurence Olivier. Great special effects will grab your attention, accented by creepy organ rips. Stories are offered such as death gathered round a card table at a local chapter of The Suicide Club, or a man who desperately tries to hire a 24 hour bodyguard all the while trying to make himself the victim of a murder, and other baffling peculiar tales of yore. Also known as Mystery Time and Mystery Time Classics, this one is sure to excite and mystify. Unfortunately this is an old time radio show with few surviving episodes in existence. THIS EPISODE: 1957. ABC network. "My Adventure In Norfolk". The program is also known as, "Mystery Time Classics" and "Masters Of Mystery." The date is approximate. Ralph Richardson, A. J. Allen (writer), Don Dowd (host). 24:00. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Sword Of Cebu (Aired March 28, 1950)
Marlowe was a more complex character than some of his hard boiled brethren. Sure he could handle a gun and take a beating. But, he was more than just a tough guy, he had gone to college, could play chess, and appreciated classical music. He also had his own strong ethical standards and turned down jobs that didn't measure up to those standards. By the late 1940's Marlowe had moved to the big screen, with Marlowe played by Dick Powell, Robert Mitchum, and Humphrey Bogart. One of those movies, Murder My Sweet, was responsible for Marlowe's first appearance on radio when it was presented on Lux Radio Theatre on June 11, 1945 starring Dick Powell and Clair Trevor. In April, 1947 the New York Times announced that the summer replacement for Bob Hope would be a new adventure-mystery series, The Adventures of Philip Marlowe. Airing on NBC at 10:00 p.m. on June 17th, the show starred Van Heflin with a script by Milton Geiger based on the stories of Raymond Chandler. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: March 28, 1950. CBS network. "The Sword Of Cebu". Sustaining. A missing sword is found with a Romanian, through his back! An albino siamese cat points to the sword's real value. Gerald Mohr, Jeanne Bates, Byron Kane, Tony Barrett, Paul Frees, Junius Matthews, Barney Phillips, Raymond Chandler (creator), Norman Macdonnell (producer, director), Richard Aurandt (composer, conductor), Robert Mitchell (writer), Gene Levitt (writer), Roy Rowan (announcer). 29:18.

The Terminal Key (Aired September 3, 1951)
Bold Venture was a classy production from start to finish. At an estimated cost of $36,000 per taping week [or about $12,000 per episode], it pretty much had to have been. Even subtracting the Bogarts' contribution of $5,000 per episode, that still left $7,000 per episode to fund the remaining production costs. That's about $420,000 a week in today's dollars. More than enough budget to ensure a top notch production. The cost to the sponsor-subscribers reportedly varied between $25 a week to as much as $250 a week, depending on the size and reach of the target market(s). That would have yielded anywhere from $975,000 to $9.75M over the course of three years of Bold Venture's sales. Even arbitrarily averaging the varying theoretical sales would have yielded on the order of at least $5M to Ziv and company over three years. Subtracting even $1M in production and marketing costs would have yielded at least a $4M profit. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: September 3, 1951. Program #24. ZIV Syndication. "The Terminal Key". Commercials added locally. A dumbsounding jockey gives Slate the key to a locker at the bus station. Inside, there's a $100,000 in stolen money. Don't miss the finale...it's a shoot-out in a shooting gallery. Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Tony Barrett, Jester Hairston, Nestor Paiva, Henry Hayward (director), Morton Fine (writer), David Friedkin (writer), David Rose (composer, conductor). 26:34.

The Secret Word Is Bread (Aired February 8, 1950)
You Bet Your Life is an American quiz show that aired on both radio and television. The most well-known version was hosted by Groucho Marx of the Marx Brothers, with announcer and assistant George Fenneman. The show debuted on ABC Radio in October 1947, then moved to CBS Radio in 1949 before making the transition to the NBC Radio and NBC-TV networks in October 1950. Because of its simple format, it was possible to broadcast the show simultaneously on the radio and on television. In 1960, the show was renamed The Groucho Show and ran a further year. Most episodes are in the public domain. The play of the game, however, was secondary to the interplay between Groucho, the contestants, and occasionally Fenneman. The program was rerun into the 1970s, and later in syndication as The Best of Groucho. As such, it was the first game show to have its reruns syndicated. The mid-1940s was a depressing lull in Groucho's career. His radio show Blue Ribbon Town, sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, which ran from March 1943 to August 1944, had failed to catch on and Groucho left the program in June 1944.

Tales of the Texas Rangers, a western adventure old-time radio drama, premiered on July 8, 1950, on the US NBC radio network and remained on the air through September 14, 1952.

"Lone Wolf" Gonzaullas, a Ranger for 30 years and who was said to have killed 31 men during his career, served as consultant for the series. THIS EPISODE: September 23, 1950. NBC network. "Open and Shut". Sustaining. Quality upgrade, network version. A young Mexican is obviously the killer of a young accountant in Lover's Lane. The date is subject to correction. Joan Banks, Joel McCrea, Parley Baer, Francis X. Bushman, Hal Gibney (announcer), Stacy Keach (producer, director), Tony Barrett, Vivi Janis. 30:11.

Tea Time For Teenagers (Aired July 8, 1951)
The Whisperer, is Philip 'Phil' Galt, a Central City attorney who lost most of his voice in an accident that crushed his vocal chords. The accident forced him to express himself in an eery, foreboding whisper. Phil Galt 'skirts the thin edges of danger, living his dual role' as attorney and his alias, The Whisperer, relentless crime-fighter against organized crime, or 'The Syndicate.' Galt used his legal contacts and knowledge of the Law to burrow deep into 'The Syndicate' in order to influence their actions and wreck havoc with their various new--and tried and true--criminal schemes. A subsequent surgical operation by famed surgeon Dr. Benjamin Lee, restored attorney Galt's voice, but Galt continues to employ his gruesome whisper to both retain his cover, and to further gain access to--and influence over--The Syndicate. He's aided by Ellen Norris, formerly a nurse who'd assisted Dr. Lee in restoring Galt's vocal chords. She becomes Galt's assistant and love interest for the remainder of the production. Phillip Galt is portrayed by Carleton G. Young, one of Radio's most recognizable voices. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group and The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: July 8, 1951. "Tea Time For Teenagers" - Lawyer Philip Gault leads a double life as a syndicate operative. In this premiere episode, he stops a plan to introduce pot to Central City's teenagers. 24:24. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
