The Edge Of Death (Aired January 15, 1946)
Produced in New York, the cast usually consisted of veteran radio actors, with occasional guest appearances by such Hollywood stars Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre and Claude Rains. What made Inner Sanctum Mysteries unique among radio horror shows was its host, a slightly-sinister sounding man originally known as “Raymond.” The host had a droll sense of humor and an appetite for ghoulish puns, and his influence can be seen among horror hosts everywhere, from the Crypt-Keeper to Elvira. Raymond Edward Johnson was the show’s host until 1945; Paul McGrath took over the role until the show left the air in 1952. THIS EPISODE: January 15, 1946. CBS network. "The Edge Of Death". Sponsored by: Lipton Tea, Lipton Soups. The story of the night Satan played a game of murder. A man is given the bejeweled rapier once owned by Rasputin, the mad monk of Russia. Larry Haines, Paul McGrath (host), Fred Maytho (writer), Mercedes McCambridge, Himan Brown (director), Mary Bennett (commercial spokeswoman), Arnold Moss, Ann Shephard. 26:23.

The Clown Who Wasn't (Aired April 17, 1977)
The General Mills Radio Adventure Theater was a 1977 anthology radio drama series with Tom Bosley as host. Himan Brown, already producing the CBS Radio Mystery Theater for the network, added this twice-weekly (Saturdays and Sundays) anthology radio drama series to his workload in 1977. It usually aired on weekends, beginning in February 1977 and continuing through the end of January 1978, on stations which cleared it. General Mills's advertising agency was looking for a means of reaching children that would be less expensive than television advertising. Brown and CBS were willing to experiment with a series aimed at younger listeners, reaching that audience through ads in comic books. Apart from Christian or other religious broadcasting, this may have been the only nationwide attempt in the U.S. in the 1970s to air such a series. THIS EPISODE: April 17, 1977. Program #22. CBS network. "The Clown Who Wasn't". Sponsored by: General Mills. The program was repeated on October 15, 1977 as, "The CBS Radio Adventure Theatre." Tom Bosley (host), Ian Martin (writer), Ralph Bell, Corinne Orr, Himan Brown (producer, director), Leon Janney, William Griffis, Evie Juster. 43:18. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Murder Is The Medium (Aired July 22, 1949)
"There he goes across the street into the drugstore, steps on the scale, height: 6 feet, weight: 290 pounds, fortune: Danger. Who isit? THE FAT MAN." Brad Runyon was the Fat Man, played by Jack Scott Smart. The series was created by Dashall Hammott and was first heard on the ABC network Jan. 21, 1946. J. Scott Smart fit the part of the Fat Man perfectly, weighing in at 270 pounds himself. When he spoke, there was no doubt that this was the voice of a big guy. Smart gave a witty, tongue-in-cheek performance and helped make THE FAT MAN one of the most popular detective programs on the air. Smart also appeared in The March Of Time (early 1930s), the Theater Guild On The Air, Blondie, The Fred Allen Show, and The Jack Benny Program. THIS EPISODE: July 22, 1949. ABC network origination, CBC rebroadcast. "Murder Is The Medium". Sponsored by: Pepto Bismol. A ten-inch knife cuts a murder during a seance and later a poisoning or two leads the Fat Man to the killer. The middle commercial has been deleted. J. Scott Smart, Bernard Green (music director), Dashiell Hammett (creator). 27:31. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Donna Dunham Case (Aired April 4, 1949)
After the fine-tuning of the audition--and the green light from NBC--Candy Matson aired as 'Candy Matson, YUkon 2-8209', with expanded characterizations for both Rembrandt and Lt. Mallard and a somewhat 'friskier' Candy herself. The combination clicked. Monty Masters' snappy dialogue, regular references to Bay Area locations, sports teams, cultural attractions and historic landmarks made for a both entertaining and familiar local production. The Jack Webb influence was unmistakeable. Jack Thomas' Rembrandt character smacked of Tudor Owens' various characterizations in Webb productions, 'Lieutenant Mallard' bore more than a passing remblance to Webb's more sympathetic Police associates over the years (Raymond Burr excepted), and the dialogue throughout the production was highly reminiscent of most of Jack Webb's efforts prior to Dragnet. But regardless of the influence, Monty Masters' scripts and dialogue remained entirely distinct--as a detective genre--from anything that had previously aired over network Radio. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: April 4, 1949. NBC network, San Francisco origination. "The Donna Dunham Case". Sustaining. Candy solves a jealous-lover murder and nearly falls victim herself. This is possibly an audition program, as the program didn't begin on a regular basis until June 29, 1949. Natalie Masters (billed as "Natalie Park"), Monte Masters (writer). 26:41. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Past Or Present (Aired March 30, 1947)
The Clock, is an Australian radio show, a dramatic thirty-minute suspense and mystery series. It was written by Lawrence Klee and narrated by "The Clock." First Broadcast in the United States was in November, 1946. It was syndicated by Grace Gibson syndication. At the time of production, the Australian accent, we now know and love, originating from the Irish and Cockney accents, was rather frowned upon by non other than Australians. The shows tried to sound neutral, then there was hope that the show could be sold to Great Britain and the United States. The show was bought by the ABC network in the States. The settings were usually generic and the actors tried to speak without a perceptible accent and for that reason the program sounded sort of "American". They occasionally slipped up on a few words, using 'boot' instead of 'trunk' when referring to a car. THIS EPISODE: March 30, 1947. Grace Gibson syndication. "The Past Or Present". Commercials added locally. The script was previously used on December 25, 1947. Madame Baba, the fortune-teller, warns a client about the color red. Harp McGuire (as "The Clock"), Don Crosby, Anna Dobb, John Saul (director), Lawrence Klee (writer), Grace Gibson (producer), Myme Dodd, Shiela Sewell, Ruth Cracknell, Leonard Teale. 24:29.

The Mink Coat (Aired June 10, 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. After another musical number and a commercial spot for Drene Shampoo, Miller would announce Ameche and Langford as the Bickersons, "in 'The Honeymoon's Over'," for the final 15 minutes of the show. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: June 10, 1951. Program #2. "The Mink Coat" - CBS network. Sponsored by: Philip Morris. Unedited tape. Frances starts the show by singing, "On The Sunny Side Of The Street." Blanche uses John's insurance money to buy a new mink coat. One of the Philip Morris commercials has "a lady from the Bronx" take "the Philip Morris Nose Test." Blanche tells John that she's going to visit her mother. Broadcast June 12, 1951. Frances Langford, Lew Parker, Phil Rapp (creator), Tony Romano, Jay Jackson (commercial spokesman), Verna Felton, John Holbrook (announcer). 29:30. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The City At Your Fingertips (Aired July 20, 1950)
Broadcast on NBC, Nightbeat ran from 1949 to 1952 and starred Frank Lovejoy as Randy Stone, a tough and streetwise reporter who worked the nightbeat for the Chicago Star looking for human interest stories. He met an assortment of people, most of them with a problem, many of them scared, and sometimes he was able to help them, sometimes he wasn’t. The scripts were excellent, given that they had to pack in a lot in a short time, and there was a good supporting cast, orchestra, and sound effects. ‘The Slasher’, broadcast on 10 November 1950, the last show of season one, has a very loosely Ripper-derived plot in which Stone searches for an artist. Supporting actors included Parley Baer, William Conrad, Jeff Corey, Lawrence Dobkin, Paul Frees, Jack Kruschen, Peter Leeds, Howard McNear, Lurene Tuttle and Martha Wentworth. THIS EPISODE: July 20, 1950. "The City At Your Fingertips" - NBC network. Sponsored by: Wheaties. Randy Stone dials his phone at random and speaks to a woman about to be murdered by her insane husband. Barbara Dupar, William Lally (announcer), Frank Lovejoy, Frank Worth (composer, conductor), Jay Novello, Katherine Card, Larry Marcus (writer), Lurene Tuttle, Peter Leeds, Warren Lewis (director). 31:08.

They Met At Dorset (Aired February 23, 1943)
After a successful tryout in New York City, the series was picked up by NBC in April 1935 and broadcast nationally, usually late at night and always on Wednesdays. Cooper stayed on the program until June 1936, when another Chicago writer, Arch Oboler, took over. By the time Cooper left, the series had inspired about 600 fan clubs. Cooper's run was characterized by grisly stories spiked with dark, tongue-in-cheek humor, a sort of radio Grand Guignol. A character might be buried or eaten or skinned alive, vaporized in a ladle of white-hot steel, absorbed by a giant slurping amoeba, have his arm torn off by a robot, tortured or decapitated -- always with the appropriate blood-curdling acting and sound effects. THIS EPISODE: February 23, 1943. CBS network. "They Met At Dorset". Sponsored by: Ironized Yeast, Molle Shaving Cream. Two German soldiers parachute into England on a mission to rescue Rudolph Hess. Seeking shelter from the rain, they come upon a genuine haunted house. A good radio ghost story. Arch Oboler (writer, host), Frank Martin (commercial spokesman). 21:02. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
