World Enough & Time (Aired November 10, 1964)
Theater Five was ABC's attempt to revive radio drama during the early 1960s. The series name was derived from its time slot, 5:00 PM. Running Monday through Friday, it was an anthology of short stories, each about 20 minutes long. News programs and commercials filled out the full 30 minutes. There was a good bit of science fiction and some of the plots seem to have been taken from the daily newspaper. Fred Foy, of The Lone Ranger fame, was an ABC staff announcer in the early 60s, who, among other duties, did Theater Five. THIS EPISODE: November 10, 1964. ABC network. "World Enough and Time". Commercials deleted. An interesting story about a man who could stay the same age, and what happens to him after an accident. Listen for excellent radio performances. John Nicholas Ianuzzi (writer), Ted Bell (director), Frank Thomas, Jack C. Wilson (script editor), Alexander Vlas-Daczenco (composer), Glenn Osser (conductor), Fred Foy (announcer), Donald Buka, George Petrie, George Baxter, Jack Grimes, Neal Pultz (audio engineer), Ed Blainey (sound technician), Edward A. Byron (executive producer). 23:01. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

A Case Of Murder (Aired August 16, 1964)
Mathew Slade: Private Investigator was a featured, half-hour mystery presentation by The Pacifica Players of Pacifica Radio of Berkeley, California and the Pacifica Foundation of North Hollywood, California. It premiered as a Starlight Mystery Theater production on July 5, 1964 over Pacifica Radio affiliate stations. Initially announced for alternating Sundays, the program soon began airing in erratic installments from August through November of 1964. Starring William Wintersole as Mathew Slade, the program was billed as a radio mystery revival series from the outset, presented in recognition of the hundreds of popular detective mysteries that had aired throughout The Golden Age of Radio. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: August 16, 1964. KPFK, Los Angeles origination, AFRTS rebroadcast. "A Case Of Murder". One of Slade's old clients has been killed "accidentally," yet his wife asks Slade to help get rid of the body! The program is also known as: "The Starlight Mystery Theater." The program was repeated on May 7, 1965, possibly a tape rebroadcast. The cast below describes the 1965 broadcast and is possibly the same of the 1964 program.

Crash Landing (Aired February 7, 1953)
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: February 7, 1953. ABC network. "Crash Landing". Sponsored by: Ralston cereals (Space Binoculars premium). Carol Karlyle, the daughter of the Secretary General of the United Planets, has been kidnapped by an arch criminal who not only gets all the evidence against him, but steals a "stim-u-tron" as well! This is a network, sponsored version. Bela Kovacs, Dick Tufeld (announcer), Ed Kemmer, Ken Mayer, Larry Robertson (producer, director), Lou Houston (writer), Lyn Osborn, Mike Mosser (creator), Steven Robertson, Virginia Hewitt. 28:38.

Phil's Golf Game (Aired February 25, 1951)
As both Phil and Alice were known singers, there were two musical numbers in each show, and they were always for real, except some of Phil's, which were for laughs. But Phil's band gave much more than music to the show. Frankie Remley was the band's left handed guitar player, with a sardonic sense of humor out of left field. The character was first done on The Jack Benny Show, and, of course, now on a show about the band itself, Frankie was even more obnoxious. Famed radio actor Elliott Lewis played him with relish. In fact, later in the run they actually started calling the character Elliott! (Elliott Lewis changes his name on the show from Frankie Remly to Elliott because Harris stopped leading Jack Benny's band--so he wasn't connected to Remly any more. THIS EPISODE: February 25, 1951. "Phil's Golf Game" - NBC network. Sustaining. Alice sings, "You're Just In Love." Phil sings, "Southern Fried Chicken." Phil plays a high-stakes game of golf with his sponsor. Alice Faye, Anne Whitfield, Bill Forman (announcer), Dick Chevillat (writer), Elliott Lewis, Gale Gordon, Jeanine Roos, Paul Phillips (producer, director), Phil Harris, Ray Singer (writer), Robert North, Sheldon Leonard, Walter Scharf and His Orchestra, Walter Tetley. 29:34.

The Third Bank Of The River (Aired April 5, 1985)
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) began airing a fascinating range of classic, mystery, comedy, documentary, and supernatural drama throughout the 1970s to 1990s to a steadily expanding audience--both in Canada and throughout the northern portions of the U.S. The CBC's extensive Radio offerings were a fairly even mix of organic dramas and comedies showcasing Canada's own great actors, writers and production talent, as well as several popular transcribed, syndicated features from throughout the British Empire and the United States. Indeed many of America's most beloved, popular, versatile and award-winning character actors, musicians, and comedians were Canadian citizens who'd honed their craft in all manner of original Canadian Radio drama.
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 Jazz Singer (Aired June 1, 1947)
"The World's Greatest Entertainer" recreates his 1927 film debut. Though regarded as the first "talking" picture, The Jazz Singer was actually a silent film with sound musical numbers and introductions so Jolson is able to more fully voice his famous role in this radio version. Jolson is supported by Ludwig Donath and Tamara Shayne (who portrayed Jolson's own parents in The Jolson Story and Jolson Sings Again), Bill Johnstone (The Shadow), Carlton Kadell (Tom Mix) and Bobby Ellis (radio's last Henry Aldrich). The Lux Radio Theatre was the biggest dramatic program on radio, airing from October 14, 1943 through June 7, 1955. The series showcased American's top stars in adaptations of Hollywood's most popular films. William Keighly took over as regular host in the fall of 1945 after Cecil B. DeMille quit his $2000-a-week hosting duties rather than pay a one-dollar union assessment he opposed. Show Notes From chrisneylon.com. THIS EPISODE: June 1, 1947. CBS network. "The Jazz Singer". Sponsored by: Lux. This is a rehearsal recording. The story of a cantor's son choosing between his career and his God. Al Jolson, Gail Patrick, Ludwig Donath, Tamara Shayne, William Keighley (host), John Milton Kennedy (announcer), Louis Silvers (music director), Carlton KaDell, William Johnstone, Edward Marr, Charles Seel, Bobby Ellis, June Whitley, Joan Winfield (intermission guest), Samson Raphaelson (author), Fred MacKaye (director), Sanford Barnett (adaptor), Charlie Forsyth (sound effects). 57:34.

The Heathrow Affair (Aired December 23, 1951)
The stories were true in every respect except that the names were changed to protect the innocent, as they say. The Whitehall 1212 series boasted that for the first time Scotland Yard opened its files and the producers promised to bring to the public authentic true stories of some of the most celebrated cases. Permission for these records came from Sir Harold Scott, Commissioner of the yard at that time. There is actually a Black Museum. This area is located on the lower ground floor of Scotland Yard and it does indeed contain articles that are closely associated with the solving of a crime. And "Whitehall 1212" was the actual emergency phone number for the yard at the time. The research for the shows was done by Percy Hoskins, chief crime reporter for the London Daily Express. THIS EPISODE: December 23, 1951. "The Heathrow Affair" - NBC network. Sustaining. An intelligent criminal plans to rob Heathrow airport of a shipment of gold. Beware the poisoned tea! The final public service announcement and the system cue have been deleted. Percy Hoskins (researcher), Wyllis Cooper (writer, director). 28:25. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Fabulous Formula Pt. 2 of 2 (Aired April 20, 1950)
MacLaughlin's versatility, predominantly in action and straight dramatic roles, made him an ideal candidate among the twenty or so actors who auditioned for the part. The selection proved a prudent one for both Lord and MacLaughlin. MacLaughlin portrayed David Harding, the ostensible head of the 'United States Counterspies' unit of the federal government. As the Chief Counterspy for the imaginary agency, all reports of suspicious espionage activity were funneled to him, providing the wealth of plots and intrigues which kept the series fresh for some 500+ scripts throughout its run. David Harding's right hand in the series was Harry Peters, a special agent for the unit, portrayed by durable character actor, Mandel Kramer, later famous over Radio for his stint as Johnny Dollar of Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: April 20, 1950. ABC network. "The Case Of The Fabulous Formula" Part 2". Sponsored by: Pepsi Cola. A woman with the secret formula leaves a trail of death across the country in her efforts to escape. A cobra "charms" her into surrender. Don MacLaughlin, Mandel Kramer, Jesse Crawford (organ), Jay Jackson (announcer), Marx B. Loeb (director), Edward Adamson (writer), Phillips H. Lord (producer). 29:07.

The Fabulous Formula Pt.1 of 2 (Aired April 18, 1950)
The show was at the top of the list among programs that had developed the technique of sound effects to a fine art. Each program was written with the sound in mind, not so much sound for sound's sake, but to advance the plot, add color or create atmosphere. Two sound effects men spent a reported ten hours in rehearsal for each broadcast, in addition to the time spent by the actors. East coast actors House Jameson, Don MacLaughlin, Phil Sterling and Lawson Zerbe [MBS] (Zerbe appeared as both David Harding and Harry Peters) were the only four actors to ever assume the role of David Harding--Jameson for the first two episodes only, replaced by Don MacLaughlin for the remainder of its twelve year run. Both Connecticut residents, House Jameson premiered in the role while Lord was still auditioning talent for the lead. By the third episode, Phillips H. Lord selected Don MacLaughlin for the role. MacLaughlin was by no means new to Radio, having already appeared in some 300 Radio productions since his debut over Radio in 1935. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: April 18, 1950. ABC network. "The Case Of The Fabulous Formula" Part 1. Sponsored by: Pepsi Cola. A scientist in his secret laboratory has discovered the secret of artificial mica and is killed for his trouble. Don MacLaughlin, Mandel Kramer, Jesse Crawford (organ), Jay Jackson (announcer), Leonard L. Bass (director), Edward Adamson (writer), Phillips H. Lord (producer). 29:08. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
