Night Riders Of Kalimar Pt2 of 2 (05-12-79)
The science fiction show was first syndicated by Watermark Inc. after Lee Hansen was hired as their creative director. After advancing the concept of an action-adventure dramatic radio series, Lee began developing the concept in the fall of 1978. Watermark premiered the first episode, "The Sun Stealers", on January 7, 1979. The series gained popularity thanks to its relatable characters, full symphonic soundtrack, realistic sound effects, high production values and documentary style format. Eventually over 500 US FM radio stations, along with stations in New Zealand and Australia aired the series. Between 1979 and 1980, 26 half-hour programs were broadcast at various times on weekends, where they gained favorable worldwide press acclaim. Alien Worlds was soon heard on a weekly basis by millions of fans and was eventually carried by over 1500 top-rated FM radio stations worldwide. The series' sponsor was Peter Paul, Cadbury which advertised Cadbury Caramello chocolates touting their caramel centers. Four additional episodes were produced but never aired. The show is currently available on Sirius Satellite Radio and on the Alien Worlds website. The series is being developed for 3-D animation for television and DVD release.

The Price Of Fame (Aired February 2, 1958)
The character closest to a continuing role was that of Pat McCracken of the Universal Adjustment Bureau, who assigned Johnny many of his cases. Another atypical aspect gave the show additional credibility – frequently, characters on the show would mention that they had heard about Johnny’s cases on the radio. Johnny often used his time when filling out his expense accounts to give the audience background information or to express his thoughts about the current case.No fewer than eight actors played Johnny Dollar. Dick Powell, of Rogue’s Gallery fame, cut the original audition tape, but chose to do Richard Diamond, Private Detective instead. Gerald Mohr, of The Adventures of Philip Marlowe fame, auditioned in 1955, prior to Bob Bailey getting the title role. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: February 2, 1958. CBS network origination, AFRTS rebroadcast. "The Price Of Fame Matter". Vincent Price, who plays himself, has been the victim of a $100,000 theft. The trail leads to Paris, a seedy cafe (with the theme from "The Third Man" playing in the background) and a Peter Lorre clone named "The Gray Cat." Bob Bailey, Vincent Price, Virginia Gregg, Howard McNear, Junius Matthews, Dan Cubberly (announcer), Forrest Lewis, Jack Johnstone (writer, producer, director), Tony Barrett. 25:50.

Catskills Cover-Up (Aired February 9, 1954)
There is frequently a beautiful woman involved, some good girls, some bad. Rocky's a tough guy who stays just inside of the law but we get an occasional glimpse of a soft heart beneath the hard exterior. It's a character that Mr. Sinatra plays nicely. Employed or not, Rocky possesed a variety of skills. During the course of the series, he worked as a process server, museum tour guide, cabbie, bodyguard, chauffeur, truck driver, social director for a Catskills resort and a carny. He could also fake enough bass to play at weddings and bar-mitzvahs. For most of the series, Rocky received his job assignments from the Gridley Employment Agency, usually referred to as just "the agency". THIS EPISODE: February 9, 1954. NBC network. "Catskills Cover-Up". Sustaining. Not auditioned. Rocky becomes a Borscht Belt social director to help a man involved in a post office robbery. Don't miss the straight-faced line, "Okay Louie, drop the blintz!". Frank Sinatra, Barney Phillips. 23:45. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Freak Show Murder (Aired May 3, 1942)
Allen first hosted The Linit Bath Club Revue on CBS, moving the show to NBC and becoming The Salad Bowl Revue (in a nod to new sponsor Hellmann's Mayonnaise, which was marketed by the parent company of Linit) later in the year. The show became The Sal Hepatica Revue (1933–34), The Hour of Smiles (1934–35), and finally Town Hall Tonight (1935–39) [in 1939–40, however, sponsor Bristol-Myers, which advertised Ipana toothpaste as well as Sal Hepatica during the program, altered the title to The Fred Allen Show, over his objections]. Allen's perfectionism (odd to some, considering his deft ad-libs) caused him to leap from sponsor to sponsor until Town Hall Tonight allowed him to set his chosen small-town milieu and establish himself as a bona fide radio star. THIS EPISODE: May 3, 1942. "Freak Show Murder" - CBS network, WABC, New York City aircheck. Sponsored by: Texaco. "The March Of Trivia." Falstaff Openshaw recites. The cast does "Freak Show Murder," as solved by "One Long Pan." One commercial is missing from the middle, two two minute portions have bad grooves. Fred Allen, Oscar Levant, Jimmy Wallington, Al Goodman and His Orchestra, Kenny Baker, Portland Hoffa, Alan Reed. 59:13. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Three Wishes (1950) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
The Creaking Door was South African Radio's attempt to create a compelling program of highly suspenseful, dramatic thrillers with a supernatural bent for their sponsor, State Express Cigarettes. Some commentators insist it was conceived as a spin-off of the already successful Inner Sanctum episodes that had been syndicated for broadcast in Australia and South Africa during the 1950s. Given the format, one can see the inference, but in fact The Creaking Door stands on its own as a unique, well-produced, engaging supernatural thriller series on its own merit. The etymology of the name, The Creaking Door, bears some reflection. When legendary producer and director, Himan Brown first presented Inner Sanctum as one of three requested sponsorship candidates to Carter Products, he presented Inner Sanctum as The Creaking Door. Carter didn't care for the name, so on the spur of the moment Hi Brown suggested Inner Sanctum as an alternative, and voila, Radio history was made. The emphasis on high production values is perhaps the very reason that several early, morally challenged Radio traders felt they could get away with interspersing many of the Creaking Door episodes with their Inner Sanctum, Mysterious Traveler, and Strange Dr. Weird offerings to a still naive community of radio recording collectors. Although somewhat left-handed, it's still a compliment to both SABC and Springbok Radio that those early 'otr hooligans' managed to get away with the practice for well over 20 years.

The Midnight Ride Of Paul Revere (Aired July 2, 1953)
A fine actor and voice talent in his own right, Elliott Lewis honed and polished his numerous performance and production skills from the mid-1930s forward for CBS. From his seemingly effortless natural progression from voice talent, to co-starring acting roles, to writing, early directing efforts, and production supervision, at each juncture Elliott Lewis continued to distinguish himself as a rare and versatile talent for CBS. Lewis' early work with Jack Benny and his Jell-O Program established his comedic timing and versatility. This connection would ultimately lead to one of Lewis' most memorable character roles as Remley, in the Phil Harris and Alice Faye Show. As Lewis embarked on his second decade with CBS he was already being promoted as 'Mr. Radio' by CBS' Publicity Department--and for good reason. Indeed, in spite of the early explosion of Television in the 1950s, Elliott Lewis continued to express his preference--very publicly--for Radio as a dramatic medium over Television. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: July 2, 1953. CBS network. "The Midnight Ride Of Paul Revere". Sustaining. The story of Paul Revere's famous warning during the early years of the Revolution. Cathy Lewis, Elliott Lewis (producer, transcriber, host, performer), Richard Chandlee (writer). 25:55.

Sponsored by Petri wine, it used the same "weekly visit" format and the same team of Anthony Boucher and Dennis Green that had written The New Adventured of Sherlock Holmes.

Hood's sidekick Sanderson "Sandy" Taylor was played by Bill Johnstone. The show aired from June, 1946 through August, 1950. There were an additional couple of shows aired in October 1951. Hood and Sanderson were played in later episodes by Elliott Lewis and Howard McNear, respectively. THIS EPISODE: October 14, 1946. Mutual network. "The Eloquent Corpse". Sponsored by: Petri Wines.
