The Adventure Of The Golden Pince-Nez (Aired April 25, 1949)
Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. He is the creation of Scottish author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning (somewhat mistakenly so called — see inductive reasoning) and astute observation to solve difficult cases. He is arguably the most famous fictional detective ever created, and is one of the best known and most universally recognisable literary characters in any genre. Conan Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes. THIS EPISODE: April 25, 1949. Mutual network, WOR, New York City aircheck. "The Adventure Of The Golden Pince-Nez". Sponsored by: Clipper Craft Clothes, Neo-Lite Soles (local). John Stanley, George Spelvin (a name traditionally used by actors who wish to remain anonymous), Basil Loughrane (producer, director), Cy Harrice (announcer), Albert Buhrman (music), Arthur Conan Doyle (author), Max Ehrlich (writer), Ian Martin. 25:02.

Rogue's Gallery - Fortune In Furs (Aired December 20, 1945)
Rogue trailed lovely blondes and protected witnesses in the new tough guy persona of Dick Powell. This was the transition series for Powell in his quest to be recognized as an actor rather than a singer. It had some of the same cute elements that would make Richard Diamond a high spot four years later. During the summer of 1946, the show was billed as Bandwagon Mysteries, with a tip of the hat to the sponsor. In the summer of 1947, it was again revived on NBC Sundays for Fitch, with Barry Sullivan in the title role. In 1950 the character again turned up in a two-year sustainer on the ABC Wednesday-night schedule. Chester Morris played the lead. Chester Morris was the original Boston Blackie. THIS EPISODE: December 20, 1945. Mutual network. "Fortune In Furs". Sponsored by: Fitch's Shampoos, Fitch's Shaving Cream. A man demands $1000 to prove that a $100,000 fur fire was really arson...and is promptly murdered. Dee Englebach (producer, director), Dick Powell, Gerald Mohr (doubles), Jim Doyle (announcer), Leith Stevens (composer, conductor), Ray Buffum (writer), Peter Leeds, Lurene Tuttle. 30:02.

Jewelry Store Robbery (Aired December 12, 1939)
Fibber McGee and Molly was a popular radio show during the era of classic, old-time radio. It was one of the longest-running comedies in the history of classic radio in the United States. The series premiered on NBC in 1935 and remained popular until its demise in 1959, long after radio had ceased to be the dominant form of entertainment in American popular culture. James "Jim" Jordan (16 November 1896–1 April 1988) and Marian Driscoll (15 April 1898–7 April 1961), were natives of Peoria, Illinois who met in church and married in 1918. The genesis of Fibber McGee and Molly occurred when the small-time husband-and-wife vaudevillians began their third year as Chicago-area radio performers. Two of the shows they did for station WENR beginning in 1927, both written by Harry Lawrence, bore traces of what was to come and rank as one of the earliest forms of situation comedy. THIS EPISODE: December 12, 1939. NBC network. Sponsored by: Johnson's Wax. Fibber the detective recovers a missing necklace after a Jewelry Store Robbery. Jim Jordan, Marian Jordan, Harlow Wilcox, Billy Mills and His Orchestra, Bill Thompson, Isabel Randolph, Jimmy Shields, Don Quinn (writer). 33:57. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Antimony (Aired March 10, 1986)
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.

A Force Called X07 (Aired May 20, 1951)
Mr. Moto is small in stature but strong and an expert in judo. He was the title character of a series of books, beginning with No Hero (1935; British title: Mr Moto Takes a Hand, reprint title: Your Turn, Mr. Moto), and of eight films between 1937 and 1939, in which he was portrayed by Peter Lorre. With the beginning of World War II, Mr. Moto fell out of favor with Americans, and no new books or movies about him appeared between 1942 and 1957. A dedicated and cold-blooded spy for Imperial Japan, Moto is not a conventional hero. He does not look for opportunities to commit violence but has no problem with killing people who obstruct his plans, and he would not hesitate to take his own life if necessary. But he is a master of concealing his true nature while under cover, and usually appears dull, naive, utterly harmless. He does not try to correct the bigoted attitudes of Westerners toward him and other Asians, and is not above encouraging such condescension. It often works to his advantage, leading Westerners to ignore or underestimate him. THIS EPISODE: May 20, 1951. NBC network. "A Force Called X07". Sustaining. Mr. Moto foils a communist plot to destroy part of New York with a portable atomic weapon. The music bridges have been deleted. The program may be dated March 26, 1951. James Monks, Peter Capell, John P. Marquand (creator), Harry W. Junkin (writer, director), John Larkin, Gavin Gordon, Scott Tennyson, Fred Collins (announcer). 26:02.

The Trojan Horse (Aired May 28, 1950)
Based on the book, Cloak and Dagger: The Secret Story of the O.S.S. by Corey Ford and Alistair McBain, the Radio rendition of these fascinating stories promised to keep any listener perched on the edge of their seat. Apart from describing the book upon which the new adventure series was based, the above is just about all the fanfare that was associated with the roll-out of NBC's only espionage program of the year. It was also one of the few solo productions that Wyllis Cooper undertook for NBC. It was also Cooper's first collaboration with British crime journalist Percy Hoskins, who would work with Cooper yet again on NBC's WHItehall-1212 a year hence. The combination of Hoskin's unfailingly accurate research and Cooper's lively, fast-paced writing and direction proved to be an excellent underpinning for an espionage adventure drama based on factual events. THIS EPISODE: May 28, 1950. NBC network. "The Trojan Horse". Sustaining. 4:00 P. M. Gabrielle Monet, a Parisian nightclub singer, is brought to Casablanca to give her former lover the wrong information about the planned Allied invasion of North Africa. Jane White, Raymond Edward Johnson, Berry Kroeger, Leon Janney, Joseph Julian, Karl Weber, Guy Sorel, Bernie Gould, Jon Gart (music director), Louis G. Cowan (producer), Corey Ford (originator), Alfred Hollander (producer), Sherman Marks (director, supervisor), Winifred Wolfe (writer), Alistair MacBain (originator). 29:25.

A Salute To Gambling (Aired February 3, 1948)
In 1934–36, Berle was heard regularly on The Rudy Vallee Hour, and he got much publicity as a regular on The Gillette Original Community Sing, a Sunday night comedy-variety program broadcast on CBS from September 6, 1936 to August 29, 1937. In 1939, he was the host of Stop Me If You've Heard This One with panelists spontaneously finishing jokes sent in by listeners. Three Ring Time, a comedy-variety show sponsored by Ballantine Ale, was followed by a 1943 program sponsored by Campbell's Soups. The audience participation show Let Yourself Go (1944–1945) could best be described as slapstick radio with studio audience members acting out long suppressed urges (often directed at host Berle). Kiss and Make Up, on CBS in 1946, featured the problems of contestants decided by a jury from the studio audience with Berle as the judge. THIS EPISODE: February 3, 1948. NBC network. Sponsored by: Philip Morris. "A Salute To Gambling". Miltie has a friendly poker game with the boys. Frank Gallop (announcer), Milton Berle, Ray Bloch and His Orchestra. 28:07.

The Odyssey Of The Vigilant (Aired April 27, 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: April 27, 1979. Program #60. CBS network. "The Odyssey Of The Vigilant". Sponsored by: Sears Roebuck and Company. Byron Kane, David Chomsky (writer), Greg Mullavey, Jack Kruschen, Joe Moross, Marvin Miller, Meredith MacRae, Richard Widmark (host), Vance Colvig. 52 minutes.

The Country Club Murder Case (Aired April 20, 1950)
With 1690 nationwide broadcasts, Mr. Keen was the most resilient private detective in a namesake role. The nearest competitors were Nick Carter, Master Detective (726 broadcasts), The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (657) and The Adventures of the Falcon (473). However, only 59 of those 1690 Mr. Keen programs are known to exist. Richard Leonard directed scripts by Barbara Bates, Stedman Coles, Frank Hummert, Lawrence Klee and Bob Shaw. James Fleming and Larry Elliott were the announcers. Al Rickey's band provided the background music, including the program's theme, "Someday I'll Find You." The cliches, stereotypes and simplistic dialogue provided much fodder for Bob and Ray's memorable parody, Mr. Trace, Keener Than Most Persons, broadcast in numerous variations. THIS EPISODE: April 20, 1950. CBS network. "The Country Club Murder Case". Sponsored by: Anacin, Kolynos, Heet, Kriptin, Bisodol, Hills Cold Tabs. A strangulation at a exclusive Westchester Club leads to forgery as well. Frank Hummert (originator, producer), Anne Hummert (originator, producer), Bennett Kilpack, Larry Elliott (announcer), Lawrence Klee (dialogue). 28:45 Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
