The Edge Of Evil (Aired January 8, 1962)
MACABRE was a series of eight tales of the supernatural produced by the Tokyo studios of the Far East Network of Armed Forces Radio Service. Principals in the MACABRE series were producer/director/ writer/star William Verdier and John F. Buey Jr. Mr. Buey was program director at FEN Tokyo since 1946 and its inception. He came into government service from the old Yankee Radio Network on the East Coast. Nothing is known at this time about the background of Mr. Verdier. FEN Tokyo sent AFRTS Los Angeles a set of 15 i.p.s. tapes, from which the disks were mastered, as an unofficial competition with one or more ongoing productions at Armed Forces Network in Germany (AFN). FEN also produced TERROR, and at least one of Frank Bresee's THE GOLDEN DAYS OF RADIO (a 25th anniversary salute to FEN). Show Notes From myexistenz THIS EPISODE: January 8, 1962. Program #8. AFRTS-FEN origination. "The Edge Of Evil". A good ghost story about a scientist's creation. Possibly the last show of the series. John Buey, Mitzi Hennessey, James Connolly (sound patterns), Walt Sheldon (writer, director), Milton Radmilovich, William Virdier, Hiroshi Ono (technical supervisor). 28:46.

The Case Of The Missing Corpse (Aired November 16, 1952)
The series focused on a crusading D.A., initially known only as "Mister District Attorney," or "Chief", and was later translated to television. On television the D.A. had a name, Paul Garrett, and the radio version picked up this name in the final years when David Brian played the role. A key figure in the dramas was the D.A.'s secretary, Edith Miller (Vicki Vola). Created, written, and directed by former law student Ed Byron, the series was inspired by the early years of New York governor Thomas E. Dewey. It was Dewey's public war against racketeering which led to his election as governor. Phillips H. Lord, creator of Gangbusters, helped to develop the concept and coined the title. Byron lent an air of accuracy and immediacy to his scripts through close study of crime statistics. THIS EPISODE: November 16, 1952. Program #15. ZIV Syndication. "The Case Of The Missing Corpse". Commercials added locally. Harry is walking out on Doris, so Doris shoots him...several times. Three years later she goes to the District Attorney to tell him that Harry is missing. The date is approximate. Phillips H. Lord (creator), David Brian. 27:00. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Missing Newshawk Caper (Aired July 18, 1948)
The Adventures of Sam Spade was a radio series based loosely on the private detective character Sam Spade, created by writer Dashiell Hammett for The Maltese Falcon. The show ran for 13 episodes on ABC in 1946, for 157 episodes on CBS in 1946-1949, and finally for 51 episodes on NBC in 1949-1951. The series starred Howard Duff (and later, Steve Dunne) as Sam Spade and Lurene Tuttle as his secretary Effie, and took a considerably more tongue-in-cheek approach to the character than the novel or movie. The series was largely overseen by producer/director William Spier. In 1947, scriptwriters Jason James and Bob Tallman received an Edgar Award for Best Radio Drama from the Mystery Writers of America. THIS EPISODE: July 18, 1948. CBS network. "The Missing Newshawk Caper". Sponsored by: Wildroot Cream-Oil. Spade is hired to find a reporter named Ray McCully. Spade finds him all right, stabbed to death! Howard Duff, Lurene Tuttle, Dashiell Hammett (creator), William Conrad, Sara Berner, Bea Benaderet (possibly), Alan Reed, Gil Doud (writer, director), Robert Tallman (writer), Lud Gluskin (music), Dick Joy (announcer). 29:57.

The Gypsy Queen (Aired April 22, 1940)
Blondie and Dagwood live next door to Herb and Tootsie Woodley. The Bumstead family has grown, with the addition of a son named Alexander (originally "Baby Dumpling") on April 15, 1934, a daughter named Cookie on April 11,1941, and a dog, Daisy, and her litter of five unnamed pups. In the 1960s, Cookie and Alexander grew into teenagers (who uncannily resemble their parents), but they stopped growing during the 1960s when Young realized that they had to remain teenagers to maintain the family situation structured into the strip for so many decades. Other regular characters include a never-ending parade of door-to-door salesmen, the long-suffering mailman, Mr. Beasley, and Elmo Tuttle, a pesky neighborhood kid who often asks Dagwood to play. Cora Dithers is the domineering wife of Julius Dithers. THIS EPISODE: April 22, 1940. CBS network. "Blondie and The Open Road". Sponsored by: Camels. Dagwood has bought a trailer and names it, "The Gypsy Queen." Arthur Lake, Penny Singleton, Bill Goodwin (announcer), Leone LeDoux, Hanley Stafford, Ashmead Scott (writer, director), Billy Artz (conductor), Chic Young (creator). 29:43.

Wherever I Go (Aired July 6, 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. The writing staff was also top-notch, with names such as Max Erlich, Joe Ruscoll and Robert Newman, among others. THIS EPISODE: July 6, 1946. Program #4. Syndicated. "Wherever I Go". Commercials added locally. A man poisons his wife after tricking her into writing a suicide note. And then "he" comes into the picture! William Moorewood (writer), Berry Kroeger, Anton M. Leader (director), Charles Paul (music), Louis G. Cowan (producer). 26:03.

Invasion From Tiranna (Aired September 25, 1954)
The success of the TV show spawned a radio version, which ran for 129 episodes from October 1952 to March 1955. The same cast of actors performed on both shows. The writers, scripts, adventures and director were quite different in radio versus TV incarnations. Naturally, the series lacked the adult sophistication of such shows as X Minus One, which focused on adapting short fiction by notable genre names as Robert A. Heinlein and Ray Bradbury. But as a throwback to the sort of Golden Age space opera popularized in the 1930s, the days of science fiction's infancy, by pioneering magazine editor Hugo Gernsback, Space Patrol is prized by OTR collectors today as one of radio's most enjoyable adventures. THIS EPISODE: September 25, 1954. ABC network. "Invasion From Tiranna". Sponsored by: Ralston cereals (space periscope premium). The Space Patrolers land on a meteorite to investigate a wrecked spaceship and gain a new ally in the fight against Tyrrana. This is a network, sponsored version. Bela Kovacs, Dick Beals, Dick Tufeld (announcer), Ed Kemmer, Helen Mosser (executive producer), Ken Mayer, Larry Robertson (producer, director), Lou Houston (writer), Lyn Osborn, Mike Mosser (creator), Norman Jolley. 28:53.

A Quiet Evening At Home (Aired November 8, 1942)
The Great Gildersleeve (1941-1957), initially written by Leonard Lewis Levinson, was one of broadcast history's earliest spin-off programs. Built around a character who had been a staple on the classic radio situation comedy Fibber McGee and Molly, The Great Gildersleeve enjoyed its greatest success in the 1940s. Actor Harold Peary played the character during its transition from the parent show into the spin-off and later in a quartet of feature films released at the height of the show's popularity. On Fibber McGee and Molly, Peary's Gildersleeve was a pompous windbag who became a consistent McGee nemesis. "You're a haa-aa-aa-aard man, McGee!" became a Gildersleeve catch phrase. The character was given several conflicting first names on Fibber McGee and Molly, and on one episode his middle name was revealed as Philharmonic. Gildy admits as much at the end of "Gildersleeve's Diary" on the Fibber McGee and Molly series (10/22/40). He soon became so popular that Kraft Foods — looking primarily to promote its Parkay margarine spread — sponsored a new series with Peary's Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve as the central, slightly softened, and slightly befuddled focus of a lively new family. THIS EPISODE: November 8, 1942. "A Quiet Evening At Home" - NBC network. Sponsored by: Kraft Parkay, Pabst-Ett. Gildersleeve wants to spend a quiet evening at home, so he starts by buying a piano! Harold Peary sings, "Why Do I Love You?" Billy Mills (composer, conductor), Earle Ross, Harold Peary, John Whedon (writer), Ken Carpenter (announcer), Lillian Randolph, Lurene Tuttle, Richard LeGrand, Shirley Mitchell, Verna Felton, Walter Tetley. 34:14.

The Infinity Factor Pt2 Of 2 (Aired August 19, 1979)
The creator, producer and director of "Alien Worlds" is Lee Hansen, a native of Tekoa, Washington. Hansen often found himself snowed in on the family farm during the winter and spent much of his childhood listening to the radio. Although he first worked as a ventriloquist, he quickly made the transition to his first love, radio, and worked as a disc jockey in Oregon, Nevada and Los Angeles. "Science fiction seems to lend itself," says Hansen, "to the scope of what we wanted to do. With what we now know about space travel, what we think about space migration, it offers the chance to toy with some provocative images and pictures in the mind." "This is not Buck Rogers. Our creatures aren't just bug-eyed monsters. We're trying for a stereo theater effect. We're using what I call rock 'n roll production techniques. The difference between this and early radio drama is that in the old days scenes could go on forever. Here, no scene lasts more than a minute-and-a-half. There are no long-winded speeches. I think people have become desensitized to listening, so here we will try to give them something to trip through for a half-hour. It's a great travel companion for your car CD player," Hansen explains. Show Notes From The Digital Deli.

The Infinity Factor Pt1 Of 2 (Aired May 12, 1979)
The concept behind "Alien Worlds" is that an organization called the International Space Authority ''watches over an eternity of uncharted galaxies and the countless planets orbiting within their starlit borders." In command of ISA is Commissioner White whose base is Starlab, a nickname for the Arthur C. Clarke Astronomical Observatory, a floating space headquarters and research center. Under his command are research director Dr. Maura Cassidy, her comedy relief assistant Tim and two space happy rocket jockies, Captains Jon Graydon and Buddy Griff. "Alien Worlds" incorporates the best elements of "Star Wars," "Star Trek - The Next Generation" and other recently successful science-fiction production and writing. The series emerges as a creative with-it, uptempo space adventure which takes full advantage of its medium. "Alien Worlds" excels in its use of multi-track sound, synthesizer tricks and symphonic music. Voices are filtered in unique ways so that the extraterrestrial beings always have a unique sound.
