The Shining Path (Aired May 3, 1985)
Vanishing Point is the title of a science fiction anthology series that ran on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio from 1984 until 1986, although the show would continue under different names and formats. A descriptive intro declared that Vanishing Point. The series was produced by Bill Lane in the CBC's Toronto studios. 1984-1986 There were 69 episodes in the original series. The series continued after that under various names and formats. "The point between reality and fantasy. Where imagination holds the key to new worlds. That point of no return---The Vanishing Point." Favorably compared to Rod Sterling's classic TV series, The Twilight Zone, these finely tuned radio dramas from the CBC provide compelling excursions into the realm of mystery and fantasy. "The point between reality and fantasy. Where imagination holds the key to new worlds. That point of no return---The Vanishing Point."

Pebble In The Sky (Aired June 17, 1951)
Dimension X was first heard on NBC April 8, 1950, and ran until September 29, 1951. Strange that so little good science fiction came out of radio; they seem ideally compatible, both relying heavily on imagination. Some fine isolated science fiction stories were developed on the great anthology shows, Suspense and Escape. But until the premiere of Dimension X -- a full two decades after network radio was established -- there were no major science fiction series of broad appeal to adults. This show dramatized the work of such young writers as Ray Bradbury, Robert (Psycho) Bloch, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, and Kurt Vonnegut. In-house script writer was Ernest Kinoy, who adapted the master works and contributed occasional storied of his own. Dimension X was a very effective demonstration of what could be done with science fiction on the air. THIS EPISODE: June 17, 1951. NBC network. "Pebble In The Sky". Sponsored by: Sustaining, Pepto Bismol (newscast). Earth, which is the only inhabited radioactive planet in the Empire, has plans for conquest! The recording includes five minutes of news about the Korean war. Albert Buhrman (music), Edward King (director), Ernest Kinoy (adaptor), Isaac Asimov (author), Norman Rose (host), Robert Trout (newscaster), Santos Ortega, Susan Douglas, William Welch (producer), Bob Warren (announcer), Edwin Jerome, Leon Janney. 24:07.

Money Problems (Aired November 14, 1949)
On July 25, 1946, Jerry began a show business partnership with Dean Martin, an association that would soon skyrocket both to fame. It started when Jerry was performing at the 500 Club in Atlantic City and one of the other entertainers quit suddenly. Lewis, who had worked with Martin at the Glass Hat in New York City, suggested Dean as a replacement. At first they worked separately, but then ad-libbed together, improvising insults and jokes, squirting seltzer water, hurling bunches of celery and exuding general zaniness. In less than eighteen weeks their salaries soared from $250.00 a week to $5,000.00. For ten years Martin and Lewis sandwiched sixteen money making films between nightclub engagements, personal appearances, recording sessions, radio shows, and television bookings. Their last film together was "Hollywood or Bust" (1956). On July 25th of that year the two made their last nightclub appearance together at the Copacabana, exactly ten years to the day since they became a team. THIS EPISODE: November 14, 1949. "Money Problems" - NBC network. Sponsored by: Chesterfield, Fatima. The first tune is, "I'm Sitting On Top Of The World." Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Dick Stabile and His Orchestra, George Fenneman (announcer), Dick Mack (producer, director), Arthur Phillips (writer), Austin Kalish (writer), Vera-Ellen (guest). 29:27.

The Red Capsule (Aired July 22, 1946)
In The Casebook of Gregory Hood the spokesperson was initially the legendary and versatile Radio talent, Harry Bartell. The incorporation of a sponsor's spokesperson into the ensemble cast wasn't ground-breaking for the genre. Petri had introduced their flavor of the format with their first sponsorship of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes over MBS in October 1943 and for the three following years immediately preceding their sponsorship of The Casebook of Gregory Hood. But this wasn't the earliest product placement innovation in Radio. Burns and Allen had woven their various sponsors' products into their earliest scripts, as had Bob Hope with his sponsors, Jack Benny with his sponsors, and Fred Allen with his. THIS EPISODE: July 22, 1946. Mutual network. "The Red Capsule". Sponsored by: Petri Wine. While camping in the mountains, a woman takes an "Efedrin" tablet, which turns out to be poison! Gregory Hood and his friend report the death, but find themselves arrested for murder! The system cue has been deleted. Gale Gordon, Harry Bartell (announcer), Denis Green (writer), Anthony Boucher (writer), William Bakewell, Dean Fosler (composer, conductor). 29:53. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Cajun Death (Aired March 28, 1979)
Mutual Radio Theater ( Sears Radio Theater ) was an anthology series of radio drama which ran weeknightly on CBS Radio in 1979, sponsored by the department-store chain; in its second year, 1980, it moved to the Mutual Broadcasting System and became the Mutual Radio Theater; the MBS series was repeats from the CBS run, until September of 1980, when a short season of new dramas was presented. The Mutual run was still most often sponsored by Sears. Often paired with The CBS Radio Mystery Theater on those stations which cleared it in its first season, the SRT offered a different genre of drama for each day's broadcast. Monday was "Western Night" and was hosted by Lorne Greene. Tuesday was "Comedy Night", hosted by Andy Griffith. Wednesday was "Mystery Night" with Vincent Price as host. Thursday was "Love And Hate Night" with Cicely Tyson doing honors as host. Finally, Friday brought "Adventure Night", first hosted by Richard Widmark and later by Howard Duff and then by Leonard Nimoy. Though less long-lived than NPR's Earplay or the Mystery Theater, it was an ambitious if not particularly critically-favored attempt to reinvigorate a neglected field. THIS EPISODE: March 28, 1979. Program #38. CBS network. "Cajun Death". Sponsored by: Sears Roebuck and Company. Barney Phillips, Don Diamond, Eddie Firestone, Elliott Lewis (producer, director), Len Birman, Lillian Buyeff, Linda Kay Henning, Parley Baer, Tommy Cook, Vincent Price (host), William Froug (writer). 38:56.

Pandora's Boxer (Aired September 22, 1964)
Walk Softly, Peter Troy Detective Drama Aired on Springbok Radio from 10 December 1963 to 21 February 1964. This series was produced in the Durban Studios of Herrick Merril Productions.

The sponsors, Irving & Johnson, reportedly disliked the series, which is why it was discontinued on Springbok Radio and moved to the English Service. This was the first series on the English Service that came from an independent production house, not produced by the SABC. There was an Australian version of this radio series produced prior to the South African productions. THIS EPISODE: September 22, 1964. Program #42. Springbok Radio (South Africa), AFRTS rebroadcast.

Election Day (Aired November 6, 1946)
During the 1930s, as vaudeville went into decline owing to increased competition from radio and the movies, Willock and Carson sought work in Hollywood, initially landing bit roles at RKO. The radio also proved to be a source of employment for the team following a 1938 appearance on the Kraft Music Hall during Bing Crosby's period as program host. This led to a number of other appearances which would culminate in Carson's own radio show in 1943. From 1950-51, Carson was one of four alternating hosts of NBC's "4 Star Revue." Other hosts that season were Jimmy Durante, Ed Wynn. and Danny Thomas. The show aired Wednesday evenings. Carson's second season was his last with the comedy-variety program when its title was changed to "All Star Revue. THIS EPISODE: November 6, 1946. "Election Day" - CBS network. Sponsored by: Campbell's Soup. It's election time at last. Will Jack win the office of County Commissioner?

The Silencer (1952) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
The Black Museum held its audience. It was aired almost perennially between 1950 and 1954, in Europe, South Africa, Australia, North America and reprised during various other periods as late as 1974. This, despite the fact that other, competing Scotland Yard and Black Museum themed programming was almost continuously airing--often over the same networks--during the same period. What fans didn't derive from WHItehall 1212 they got from Secrets of Scotland Yard. Likewise, when The Black Museum began to air, it arrived from just enough different approach to hold that same audience for yet another thirty-eight to fifty-two installments--not to mention getting Orson Welles in the bargain. The MGM Radio Attraction transcriptions in particular were very well engineered and have held up quite well. THIS EPISODE: 1952. Syndicated. "The Silencer". Commercials added locally. A man moving into a new house is shot and killed by a gun with a silencer. Other murders soon follow. Orson Welles (narrator), Harry Alan Towers (producer), Ira Marion (writer), Sidney Torch (composer, conductor). 29:09. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Motel Burglary (Aired September 25, 1954)
Before the "Reality TV", there was "Reality Radio" and Night Watch was there. This show is a straight crime documentary with no music, sound effects, or actors. Police reporter Don Reid rode in a prowl car on the night shift with officers from the Culver City, California police department. While wearing a hidden microphone, he captures the sounds and voices of real life drama. From the worried child to the hardened criminal, their stories come through loud and clear. The names were changed to protect identities, but everything else in this gripping series is real. THIS EPISODE: September 25, 1954. "Motel Burglary" - CBS network. Sustaining. The first call is about a burglary suspect caught in a motel, stealing towels and bed clothes! Later, a young girl has been locked out of her house. Donn Reed (police recorder), W. N.
