The Repentant Red Head (Aired December 17, 1963)

A sequel to this series was heard on the English Radio Service from 19 May 1964 to 28 November 1964. The sponsors, Irving & Johnson, reportedly disliked the series, which is why it was discontinued on Springbok Radio and moved to the English Service.

The Blue Legend (Aired March 3, 1947)
The Whistler was one of radio's most popular mystery dramas, with a 13-year run from May 16, 1942 until September 22, 1955. If it now seems to have been influenced explicitly by The Shadow, The Whistler was no less popular or credible with its listeners, the writing was first class for its genre, and it added a slightly macabre element of humor that sometimes went missing in The Shadow's longer-lived crime stories. Writer-producer J. Donald Wilson established the tone of the show during its first two years, and he was followed in 1944 by producer-director George Allen. Other directors included Sterling Tracy and Sherman Marks with final scripts by Joel Malone and Harold Swanton. A total of 692 episodes were produced, yet despite the series' fame, over 200 episodes are lost today. In 1946, a local Chicago version of The Whistler with local actors aired Sundays on WBBM, sponsored by Meister Brau beer. THIS EPISODE: March 3, 1947. CBS Pacific network. "The Blue Legend". Sponsored by: Signal Oil. A schemer talks his way into a half interest in an valuable Alaskan gold mine, and then gets the nugget of an idea for murder. Alan Reed, Virginia Gregg, E. Jack Neuman (writer), George W. Allen (producer), Wilbur Hatch (music), Marvin Miller (announcer). 29:16. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

To Guard A Seal (Aired February 5, 1950)
Richard Diamond, Private Detective came to NBC in 1949. Diamond was a slick, sophisticated detective, with a sharp tongue for folks who needed it. Diamond enjoyed the detective life, but not as much as entertaining his girl, Helen Asher. After each show, he would croon a number to his Park Avenue sweetheart. Mr. Powell, a former song and dance man, was perfect for the role. He added an extra dimension to the 40's hokey private eye drama. Diamond was a rough gumshoe that would often get knocked on the head with a revolver butt or other items. His counterpart on the police force was Lt. Levinson who often accepted Diamond's help reluctantly. Levinson would claim to get stomach trouble whenever Diamond would call him and would take bicarbonate to settle his aching stomach. Although they always seem at odds with each other, Diamond and Levinson were best friends. THIS EPISODE: February 5, 1950. "To Guard A Seal" - NBC network. Sustaining. Diamond is hired to be the bodyguard of Timothy...the seal. A funny show! Dick sings, "Cathy" after the show. Dick Powell, Ed Begley, Tony Barrett, Lawrence Dobkin, Edward King (announcer), Wilms Herbert, Fay Baker, Junius Matthews, Billy Bletcher, Frank Worth (music director), Russell Hughes (director), Blake Edwards (writer). 29:30.

Boy Go Home (Aired July 31, 1954)

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: July 31, 1954. "Boy Go Home" - CBS network. Sustaining. The first case is about a little lost boy. When the cops return the boy to his house, his parents aren't home. A house burns down (it's arson), a domestic violence case.

Jack Hires A Bodyguard (Aired February 5, 1947)
Jack Carson, because of his size — 6 ft 2 in (1.9 m) and 220 lb (100 kg), had his first stage appearance as Hercules in a college production. During a performance, he tripped and took half the set with him. A college friend, Dave Willock, thought it was so funny he persuaded Carson to team with him in a vaudeville act—Willock and Carson—and a new career began. This piece of unplanned business would be typical of the sorts of things that tended to happen to Carson during some of his film roles. 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.
