Double Troubles (Aired March 8, 1948)
Dependable, level-headed Jane Stacy (Cathy Lewis, Diana Lynn) began each weekly radio program by narrating a misadventure of her innocent, bewildered roommate, Irma, a dim-bulb stenographer from Minnesota. The two central characters were in their mid-twenties. Irma had her 25th birthday in one episode; she was born on May 5. After the two met in the first episode, they lived together in an apartment rented from their Irish landlady, Mrs. O'Reilly (Jane Morgan, Gloria Gordon). Irma's boyfriend Al (John Brown) was a deadbeat, barely on the right side of the law, who had not held a job in years. Only someone like Irma could love Al, whose nickname for Irma was "Chicken". THIS EPISODE: March 8, 1948. "Double Troubles" - CBS network. Sponsored by: Swan Soap ($100,000 fur contest), Spry. Irma and Jane have had fights with Al and Richard. Plans are made for an intimate dinner for four. Professor Kropotkin is matched up with Mrs. O'Reilly.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Have Gun Will Travel" - Bitter Wine (Aired June 14, 1959)
The theme song of the series refers to him as "a knight without armor." In addition, Paladin drew a parallel between his methods and the chess piece's movement: "It's a chess piece, the most versatile on the board. It can move in eight different directions, over obstacles, and it's always unexpected." Paladin was a former Army officer and a graduate of West Point. He was a polyglot, capable of speaking any foreign tongue required by the plot. He also had a thorough knowledge of ancient history and classical literature, and he exhibited a strong passion for legal principles and the rule of law. THIS EPISODE: June 14, 1959. CBS network. "Bitter Wine". Sponsored by: Longines Watches, Mutual Of Omaha, Casite, Look Magazine. Paladin steps in to stop a feud between an Italian vineyard owner and an Irish oil driller. This is a network, sponsored version. The script was used on the "Have Gun, Will Travel" television show on February 15, 1958.

The Whale Of Pirates Folly (08-28-40 & 08-30-40) Pt. 1 & 2 Complete
After his father was killed by a gangster's bullet, young Dan Garrett joined the New York Police Department, but soon tired of the slow pace and red tape of police work. With the help of his friend and mentor, pharmacist and drug-store proprietor Dr. Franz, Dan acquired a costume of bullet-proof chain-mail-like cellulose material, and began a second life, fighting crime as The Blue Beetle. His calling card was a small beetle-shaped marker that he left in conspicuous places to alert criminals to his presence, using their fear of his crime fighting reputation as a weapon against them. For this purpose he also used a "Beetle Signal" flashlight. The Blue Beetle's reputation was not his only weapon -- he carried a revolver in a blue holster on his belt, and was sometimes shown wearing a multi-pouched belt after the style set by Batman. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. TODAY'S SHOW: August 28, 1940. Program #43. Fox Features syndication. "The Whale Of Pirate's Folly" Part one. Commercials added locally. The Blue Beetle tracks down a gang of smugglers and is thrown into the harbor, tied up in a net and left unconscious. 12:13. August 30, 1940. Program #44. Fox Features syndication. "The Whale Of Pirate's Folly" Part two. Commercials added locally. The Blue Beetle captures a submarine disguised as a whale being used by smugglers!. 12:04. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Candy's Last Case (Aired May 21, 1951)
Candt Matson was the private eye star of Candy Matson, YUkon 2-8208, an NBC West Coast show which first aired in March 1949 and was created by Monty Masters. He cast his wife, Natalie Parks, in the title role of this sassy, sexy PI. Her understated love interest, Lt. Ray Mallard, was played by Henry Leff while her assistant and best pal, aptly named Rembrandt Watson, was the voice of Jack Thomas. Every show opened with a ringing telephone and our lady PI answering it with "Candy Matson, YU 2-8209" and then the organ swung into the theme song, "Candy". Each job took Candy from her apartment on Telegraph Hill into some actual location in San Francisco. The writers, overseen by Monty, worked plenty of real Bay Area locations into every plot. THIS EPISODE: May 21, 1951. NBC network, San Francisco origination. "Candy's Last Case". Sustaining. The last show of the series. A double murder, a missing half million dollar diamond, and suspicion of Lt. Mallard's innocence can't keep Candy from marriage at the end of her career. Natalie Masters. 29:49.

The Simmons Construction Murder (Aired November 29, 1945)
The Boston Blackie radio series, also starring Morris, began June 23, 1944, on NBC as a summer replacement for The Amos 'n' Andy Show. Sponsored by Rinso, the series continued until September 15 of that year. Unlike the concurrent films, Blackie had a steady romantic interest in the radio show: Lesley Woods appeared as Blackie's girlfriend Mary Wesley. Harlow Wilcox was the show's announcer. On April 11, 1945, Richard Kollmar took over the title role in a radio series syndicated by Frederic W. Ziv to Mutual and other network outlets. Over 200 episodes of this series were produced between 1944 and October 25, 1950. Other sponsors included Lifebuoy Soap, Champagne Velvet beer, and R&H beer. While investigating mysteries, Blackie invaribly encountered harebrained Police Inspector Farraday (Maurice Tarplin) and always solved the mystery to Farraday's amazement. Initially, friction surfaced in the relationship between Blackie and Farraday, but as the series continued, Farraday recognized Blackie's talents and requested assistance. Blackie dated Mary Wesley (Jan Miner), and for the first half of the series, his best pal Shorty was always on hand.

Welcome Mr. Conklin (Aired June 23, 1948)
Our Miss Brooks, an American situation comedy, began as a radio hit in 1948 and migrated to television in 1952, becoming one of the earlier hits of the so-called Golden Age of Television, and making a star out of Eve Arden (1908-1990) as comely, wisecracking, but humane high school English teacher Connie Brooks. The show hooked around Connie's daily relationships with Madison High School students, colleagues, and pompous principal Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon), not to mention favourite student Walter Denton (future television and Rambo co-star Richard Crenna, who fashioned a higher-pitched voice to play the role) and biology teacher Philip Boynton ( Jeff Chandler), the latter Connie's all-but-unrequited love interest, who saw science everywhere and little else anywhere. THIS EPISODE: June 23, 1948. "Welcome Mr. Conklin" - CBS network. Audition program. Osgood Conklin becomes the new principal of Madison High, after a traffic accident involving Miss Brooks! Eve Arden, Jeff Chandler, Richard Crenna, Al Lewis (writer), Joe Forte. 31:03. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "The Six Shooter" - Helen Bricker (Aired January 24, 1954)
The theme of The Six Shooter wasn't the only aspect of the production that created a buzz throughout during the Fall and Winter of 1953-54. The term 'adult western,' when it was first coined in the late 1940s, referred to the overlaying of contemporary psychological themes onto the western genre of literature, Radio and Film. Just as in noir crime fiction in print, film noir and radio noir had ushered in a new perspective on traditional fiction; the overlaying of contemporary values, psychological themes and sophisticated social interactions between characters of a story. The adult western transformed the traditional 'black hat'-'white hat' type of shoot'em up cowboy opera format into a form that examined the deeper motivations of its characters and how those psychological themes informed the plot--but in a period western setting. Adult westerns first appeared in Film with big screen hits like Sam Fuller's classic I Shot Jesse James (1949), Winchester '73 (1950), High Noon (1952), and Shane (1953). Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: January 24, 1954. NBC network. Sustaining. "Helen Bricker" is ostracized by the town because of her outlaw husband. A mob plans to burn her out after her husband is hanged. This is a network broadcast. Jimmy Stewart, Jack Johnstone (director), Basil Adlam (music), Lillian Buyeff, Will Wright, Parley Baer, Herb Vigran, John Wald (announcer), Frank Burt (creator, writer), Ken Christy. 29:26.

Talent Scouts (Aired April 24, 1950)
Godfrey found in later years that his enthusiasm for high tech had its limits, when he concluded that some technological developments posed the potential to threaten the environment. During one appearance on The Dick Cavett Show, Godfrey commented that the United States needed the supersonic transport "about as much as we need another bag of those clunkers from the moon." The concern that the SST contributed to noise pollution, an issue Godfrey was instrumental in raising in the United States, is considered to have effectively ended SST interest in the U.S., leaving it to Britain and France.[citation needed] (Cavett claims that Godfrey's statement also earned tax audits from the Richard Nixon-era Internal Revenue Service for the show's entire production staff.) Despite an intense desire to remain in the public eye, Godfrey's presence ebbed considerably over the next ten years, notwithstanding an HBO special and an appearance on a PBS salute to the 1950s. A 1981 attempt to reconcile him with LaRosa for a Godfrey show reunion record album, bringing together Godfrey and a number of the "Little Godfreys," collapsed. At an initially amicable meeting, Godfrey reasserted that LaRosa wanted out of his contract and asked why he hadn't explained that instead of insisting he was fired without warning.

The Barney Miller Syndicate (1953) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
The 'hot potato' that "That Hammer Guy" had become ultimately resolved itself with the premiere of That Hammer Guy--over Mutual--on December 30, 1952, the beginning of a ninety-one episode series of hard-boiled Mickey Spillane mystery and adventure yarns. The series premiered with Inner Sanctum workhorse Larry Haines as Mike Hammer, aided by Jan Miner in the role of Velda, Hammer's secretary and love interest, as well as several other roles in the ensemble cast. By about three months into the run, the series attempts--rather unsuccessfully--to rename itself, Mickey Spillane-Mystery or Mickey Spillane, Mystery depending on the outlet. Neither name ever really took, and the majority of the newspaper and magazine listings of the era continued to refer to the series as either That Hammer Guy, Mike Hammer, or Mickey Spillane Mysteries. The nomenclature didn't seem to bother Mutual in the least, and its most loyal affiliate stations continued to air Mickey Spillane-Mystery with almost no interruptions, pre-emptions or day and time changes for its entire run. In the model of Mutual's MBS-Plus co-op sponsorship, Esquire Magazine, General Mills' Kix cereal and Camel Cigarettes shared the sponsorship of the initial run of That Hammer Guy. Show Notes From The Digital Deli.
