Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Wild Bill Hickock" - The Gold Maker (Aired November 19, 1950)
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. The radio program lasted until 1954. The television show was started at the same time in 1951 and lasted until 1958. THIS EPISODE: November 19, 1950. Program #34. Mutual network. "The Gold Maker". Sponsored by: Kellogg's Corn Pops. A con-man is selling the secret of making gold. 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), Parley Baer, Joseph Du Val, Fred Howard, Ralph Moody, Jack Moyles. 25:14. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Crawling Thing (Aired May 18, 1953)
Written and directed by Richard Thorne, a prolific and talented writer and producer, this series is often overlooked, even by fans of OTR. It is unfortunate, since it provides some very unique and dramatic material; the acting in particular was superb. Early on, the series concentrated on murder mysteries, but later shows were devoted to horror and some sci-fi. Sadly, not all episodes have survived - only about 40 of perhaps over a hundred shows still exist. All episodes were standard half-hour format. THIS EPISODE: May 18, 1953. Mutual network, WGN, Chicago origination. "The Crawling Thing". Commercials deleted. A scientist uses a deadly spider to experiment with his growth serum. It works all too well. Good of this kind. The program was rebroadcast on November 16, 1953. Richard Thorne (writer, producer), Harold Turner (music), Leroy Olliger (director). 24:03. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Fred Sears Murder Case (Aired June 19, 1949)
Richard Diamond, Private Detective was a radio show starring Dick Powell which aired from 1949 to 1953, first on NBC, then ABC and finally on CBS. The title character was a rather light-hearted detective who often ended the episodes singing to his girlfriend, Helen. The television series was produced by Powell's company, Four Star Television, and that series ran for 3 years from 1957 to 1960. On TV, David Janssen played the hard boiled private eye and his secretary renamed “Sam”, was only ever shown on camera from the waist down, most assurardidly to display her beautiful legs. It was later leared that the legs belonged to Mary Tyler Moore. Original music by Frank DeVol and pete rugolo and later by richard shores. Good scripts, a solid cast and Powell’s exceptional talent made a good time 30 minute program that was quite popular during that Golden Age of Radio. So Let’s sit back now, relax and enjoy this truly otr radio classic.,…, Dick powell as Richard Diamond.., Private Detective. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group.

The Cigar Box Bandit (Aired February 15, 1951)
The Lineup is a realistic police drama that gives radio audiences a look behind the scenes at police headquarters. Bill Johnstone plays Lt. Ben Guthrie, a quiet, calm-as-a-cupcake cucumber. Joseph Kearns (and from 1951 to 1953, Matt Maher) plays Sgt. Matt Grebb, a hot-tempered hot plate who is easily bored. The director and script writer often rode with police on the job and sat in on the police lineups to get ideas for The Lineup. They also read dozens of newspapers daily and intermeshed real stories with those that they used in the show. With Dragnet a smash hit, realism in police dramas was popular at the time this show aired. Don’t be caught without this radio show in your collection! THIS EPISODE: February 15, 1951. CBS network. Sustaining. "The Cigar Store Bandit" has the entire police force puzzled in this surprisingly good story with a twisted ending. David Young, Ed Begley, Eddie Dunstedter (music), Howard McNear, Jaime del Valle (producer, director), Joe Walters (announcer), John McIntire, Milton Geiger (adaptor), Peggy Webber, Wally Maher, Walter Catlett, William Johnstone. 28:13.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Cisco Kid" - Vengeance At Wind Rock (Aired August 26, 1954)
Broadcast constantly sometimes once a week sometimes 3 times a week By Mutual, between 1942 and 1956. Western Drama mainly for the young ones or maybe just the young at heart. I say the young at heart, because The Cisco Kid and his likeable but simple partner Pancho were a couple of lovable rogues and because there was usually a lovely senorita around in every episode who fell madly in love with Sisco, there may well have been an element of lady listeners included in the audience rating figures. THIS EPISODE: August 26, 1954. Program #218. Mutual-Don Lee network origination, Ziv syndication. "Vengeance At Wind Rock". Commercials added locally. Larry Carson has been released from jail. He has sworn vengeance against the marshal that sent him to prison...his own father! Jack Mather, Harry Lang. 28:08. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Adventure At Wisteria Lodge (Aired May 12, 1947)
According to Holmes, it was an encounter with the father of one of his classmates that led him to take up detection as a profession and he spent the six years following university working as a consulting detective, before financial difficulties led him to take Watson as a roommate, at which point the narrative of the stories begins. From 1881, Holmes is described as having lodgings at 221B Baker Street, London, from where he runs his private detective agency. 221B is an apartment up seventeen steps, stated in an early manuscript to be at the "upper end" of the road. Until the arrival of Dr. Watson, Holmes works alone. THIS EPISODE: May 12, 1947. ABC network. "The Adventure Of Wisteria Lodge". Sponsored by: Kreml Hair Tonic, Kreml Shampoo. A Mr. Eckles is invited to the mansion of a Spanish gentleman, only to find that everyone has disappeared the next morning. The clues are a cipher that only Sherlock Holmes can understand.

Tom Conway, Nigel Bruce, Joseph Bell (announcer), Anthony Boucher (writer), Denis Green (writer), Arthur Conan Doyle (author), Alex Steinert (composer, conductor), Tom McKnight (producer). 29:12.

The Apparition (Aired May 6, 1981)
The CBS Radio Mystery Theater (or CBSRMT) was an ambitious and sustained attempt to revive the great drama of old-time radio in the 1970s. Created by Himan Brown (who had by then become a radio legend due to his work on Inner Sanctum Mysteries and other shows dating back to the 1930s), and aired on affiliate stations across the CBS Radio network, the series began its long run on January 6, 1974. The final episode ran on December 31, 1982. The show was broadcast nightly and ran for one hour, including commercials. Typically, a week consisted of three to four new episodes, with the remainder of the week filled out with reruns. There were a total of 1399 original episodes broadcast. The total number of broadcasts, including reruns, was 2969. The late E.G. Marshall hosted the program every year but the final one, when actress Tammy Grimes took over.

The Gooseby Vacation (Aired June 22, 1951)
This was a variety show starring Don Ameche and singer-actress Frances Langford as co-hosts, airing on NBC and sponsored by Drene Shampoo. Announcing the show—and later familiar to television viewers as The Millionaire's presenter and executive secretary, Michael Anthony—was Marvin Miller. Drene Time typically opened with Langford singing a big band-style arrangement before Ameche and Langford would slip into routine comedy, often aided by co-star Danny Thomas, in routines that often expressed Ameche's frustration that Thomas was more interested in modern technology and discoveries than in women. THIS EPISODE: June 22, 1951. "The Gooseby Vacation" - CBS network. Sponsored by: Philip Morris. Unedited tape. Frances starts the program by singing, "Exactly Like You." After a driving lesson, the Bickersons rent the Gooseby's house while Brother Barney uses the Bickerson's home for a poker game. Tony Romano and His Orchestra, Phil Rapp (creator), Frances Langford, Lew Parker, Bob Pfoeffer (commercial spokesman), John Holbrook (announcer). 31:03. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Fort Laramie" - Woman At Horse Creek (Aired February 12, 1956)
Heading up the cast was a 39 year old, Canadian-born actor with a long history in broadcasting and the movies, Raymond Burr. He had begun his career in 1939, alternating between the stage and radio. He turned to Hollywood, and from 1946 until he got the part of Captain Lee Quince in Fort Laramie in 1956, he had appeared in thirty-seven films. A few were excellent (Rear Window, The Blue Gardenia) some were average (Walk a Crooked Mile, A Place in the Sun) but many were plain awful (Bride of Vengeance, Red Light, and Abandoned). With Burr in the lead, Macdonnell selected two supporting players: Vic Perrin as "Sgt. Goerss" and Jack Moyles as "Major Daggett", the commanding officer of the post. (The original Fort Laramie usually had a Lieutenant Colonel as the C.O. but Macdonnell probably preferred a shorter military title.) THIS EPISODE: February 12, 1956. CBS network. "Woman At Horse Creek". Sustaining. A new widow named Mrs. Dennis remains all alone out on the prairie...easy prey for Indians...or soldiers. The system cue was added live. Raymond Burr, Norman Macdonnell (producer, director), Vic Perrin, Kathleen Hite (writer), Virginia Christine, Barney Phillips, Jack Moyles, John Dehner, Bill James (sound patterns), Ray Kemper (sound patterns), Amerigo Moreno (music supervisor), Harry Bartell. 29:42.

Death Tolls A Requiem (Aired August 23, 1946)
According to Billboard magazine, talent and production costs for Murder At Midnight averaged about $5000 per program, one of the higher costs of canned, syndicated programming of the era. But the investment shows. And indeed, well into its almost six years of syndication, the series continued to pull respectable audience shares. The talent included well known names such as Lawson Zerbe, Karl Swenson, Berry Kroeger, Lon Clark, Frank Readick, Elspeth Eric, Mandel Kramer, Michael Fitzmaurice, Alfred Shirley, and Raymond Edward Johnson--and his wife, among many other well-respected east coast actors of the era. Anton Leader, later famous for his Television work, directed the series. THIS EPISODE: August 23, 1946. Program #19. KFI, Los Angeles origination, Cowan syndication, World transcription. "Death Tolls A Requiem". Commercials added locally. After a man kills the bell ringer in his belfry, he hears the sound of bells wherever he goes. Raymond Morgan (host), Max Ehrlich (writer), Albert Buhrman (organist), Anton M. Leader (director), Michael Fitzmaurice, Louis G. Cowan (producer). 26:24. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
