The Torment Of Henrietta Robinson & Why She Killed (Aired September 7, 1953)
Crime Classics was a U. S. radio docudrama which aired over CBS from June 15, 1953 to June 30, 1954. Created, produced, and directed by radio actor/director Elliott Lewis, the program was basically a historical true crime series, examining crimes, and especially murders, from the past. It grew out of Lewis's 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. THIS EPISODE: September 7, 1953. CBS network. "The Torment Of Henrietta Robinson and Why She Killed". Sustaining. A lady of Troy New York in 1845, and her doll Cecily. Very insane and very homicidal. The last show of "the summer series." Ben Wright, Bernard Herrmann (composer, conductor), Betty Harford, Bob Lemond (announcer), David Friedkin (writer), Elliott Lewis (producer, director), Joseph Kearns, Lamont Johnson, Lou Merrill (host), Morton Fine (writer), Paula Winslowe, Sam Edwards, Sammie Hill. 29:24.

Hell Week (Aired January 2, 1952)
The series ran 110 half-hour radio episodes from January 6, 1950 to June 25, 1952, with Quinn, Jerome Lawrence, and Robert Lee writing most of the scripts and giving free if even more sophisticated play to Quinn's knack for language play, inverted cliches and swift puns (including the show's title and lead characters), a knack he'd shown for years writing Fibber McGee and Molly. Jerome Lawrence and Robert Lee continued as a writing team; their best-known play is Inherit the Wind.Cameron Blake, Walter Brown Newman, Robert Sinclair, and Milton and Barbara Merlin became writers for the program as well. But listeners were surprised to discover that the episode of 27 September 1950, "The Leslie Hoff Painting," a story tackling racial prejudice, was written by Colman himself. The sponsors were Schlitz Brewing Company and then Nabisco. Nat Wolff produced and directed, Henry Russell handled the music and radio veteran Ken Carpenter was the announcer.

Mean Old Man (Aired March 21, 1954)
Benny had been only a minor vaudeville performer, but he became a national figure with The Jack Benny Program, a weekly radio show which ran from 1932 to 1948 on NBC and from 1949 to 1955 on CBS, and was consistently among the most highly rated programs during most of that run. With Canada Dry Ginger Ale as a sponsor, 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. THIS EPISODE: March 21, 1954. Program #372. CBS net origination, AFRS rebroadcast. Who is "The Mean Old Man?"

The Treasure Of Kublai Khan (Aired July 20, 1953)
Originally a local series out of Utah that found its way on to the airwaves sporadically from 1947 to 1952, this anthology was picked up for national syndication by the Mutual network and broadcast from mid-52 through mid-53. 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. THIS EPISODE: July 20, 1953. Mutual network, WGN, Chicago origination (possibly syndicated). "The Treasure Of Kublai Khan". Commercials deleted. An excellent ghost story about a hidden treasure in old Persia, and the dead warrior who guards it. The program was rebroadcast on February 15, 1954. Richard Thorne (writer). 27:22.

My Man Godfrey (Aired October 2, 1946)
The list of films and actors on Academy Award Theater is very impressive. Bette Davis begins the series in Jezebel, with Ginger Rogers following in Kitty Foyle, and then Paul Muni in The Life of Louis Pasteur. The Informer had to have Victor Mclaglen, and the Maltese Falcon, Humphrey Bogart, Sidney Greenstreet (this movie was his first major motion picutre role) plus Mary Astor for the hat trick. Suspicion starred Cary Grant with Ann Todd doing the Joan Fontaine role, Ronald Coleman in Lost Horizon, and Joan Fontaine and John Lund were in Portrait of Jenny. How Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio were done is something to hear! THIS EPISODE: October 2, 1946. CBS network. "My Man Godfrey". Sponsored by: Squibb. The classic story of the Depression and the Butler found at the city dumps. William Powell. 32:10. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Flying Saucers (Aired August 30, 1950)
2000 Plus, for its part, clearly had all the makings of a truly exceptional science fiction canon. The sound engineering, in particular, was every bit the equal of anything heard previously on ABC, CBS or NBC. The music scoring for 2000 Plus was also quite effective and forward-looking for the era. An east coast production from beginning to end, the series tapped some of New York's finest dramatic talent for its productions. Indeed, the pace, direction, plot arcs and all-around finish of its productions were every bit the equal of any of MBS's finest popular productions from the early 1940s. In spite of John Crosby's ascerbic observations of science dramas in general, America was clearly ready, willing and able to embrace mainstream science fiction of a more provocative, adult nature. Though 2000 Plus was never quite the equal of the competing sci-fi dramas that succeeded it, it acquitted itself overall. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: August 30, 1950. Mutual network origination, AFRS rebroadcast.. "The Flying Saucers". Sustaining. In the year 2012, a second "Zeus" rocket is about to be launched from White Sands. The saucers have been visiting for the last three months and are considered a potential threat. Ralph Bell, Luis Van Rooten, Bryna Raeburn, Pierre Gerson (writer), Ken Williams, Emerson Buckley (conductor), Elliot Jacoby (composer), Walt Shaver (sound), Adrian Penner (sound), Martin Enghauser (engineer), Ken Marvin (announcer), Sherman H. Dreyer (creator, producer). 29:24. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Saddle Shoes (Aired April 7, 1953)
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. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: April 7, 1953. "The Saddle Shoes" aka: "Sophisticated Lady" - Mutual network. Sponsored by: Esquire Magazine, Kix, Camels (G & D Vermouth: local). Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer as rough and tough as ever. Mike's after a pair of saddle shoes after their owner shoots first to kill...and almost does. The system cue has been deleted. Larry Haines, Jan Miner, Mickey Spillane (creator), Edward Adamson (writer), Richard Lewis (director, co-producer), Ed Ladd (announcer). 29:18. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
