Runaway From Murder (Aired October 27, 1953)
The characters originated in 1930s vignettes written by Richard Lockridge for the New York Sun, and he brought them back for short stories in The New Yorker. These stories were collected in Mr. and Mrs. North (1936). Lockridge increased the readership after he teamed with his wife Frances on a novel, The Norths Meet Murder (1940), launching a series of 40 novels, including Death takes a Bow, Death on the Aisle and The Dishonest Murderer. Their long-run series continued for over two decades and came to an end in 1963 with the death of Frances Lockridge. Albert Hackett and Peggy Conklin had the title roles in the Broadway production Mr. and Mrs. North, which ran 163 performances at the Belasco Theater from January 12, 1941, to May 31, 1941. Others in the cast were Paul Kelly, Rose Hobart and Keye Luke. In 1946, producer-director Fred Coe brought the Owen Davis play to television (on New York City's WNBT) with John McQuade and Maxine Stewart in the leads and Don Haggerty, Joan Marlowe and Millard Mitchell repeating their Broadway roles. Barbara Britton and Richard Denning starred in the TV adaptation seen on CBS from 1952 to 1953 and on NBC in 1954. Guest appearances on this series included Raymond Burr, Hans Conried, Mara Corday, Carolyn Jones, Katy Jurado, Jimmy Lydon, Julia Meade, William Schallert and Gloria Talbott.

He's A Jolly Good Fellow (Aired February 13, 1950)
Crime Does Not Pay was a series based on short films of the same name produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. It was similar to Gangbusters, having a moralistic message about the law and lawbreaker. It was first heard over WMGM (NYC), hosted by Donald Buka. The last original show aired on Apr. 11, 1951. The series started on Monday evenings at 7:30 PM (on WMGM) and held that time/day spot until Oct. 30, 1950. The 56'th show marked a change to Wednesday night, again at 7:30. After show number 78 (Apr.11, 1951) the shows were repeated, starting with the first, "Kid With a Gun". The repeats followed the original order up until repeat of number 26, "Ingenious Woman" on Oct. 10, 1951. THIS EPISODE: February 13, 1950. Program #19. MGM syndication. "He's A Jolly Good Fellow". Commercials added locally. The date above is the date of first broadcast on WMGM, New York City, from which this syndicated version may have been taken. The life-of-the-party has "the life of Riley."

A Story Goes With It (Aired August 21, 1949)
Damon Runyon Theater - Broadcast from January to December 1949, "The Damon Runyon Theater" dramatized 52 of Runyon's short stories for radio. Damon Runyon (October 4, 1884 – December 10, 1946) was a newspaperman and writer. He was best known for his short stories celebrating the world of Broadway in New York City that grew out of the Prohibition era. He spun tales of gamblers, petty thieves, actors and gangsters; few of whom go by "square" names, preferring instead to be known as "Nathan Detroit", "Big Jule", "Harry the Horse", "Good Time Charlie", "Dave the Dude", and so on. These stories were written in a very distinctive vernacular style: a mixture of formal speech and colorful slang, almost always in present tense, and always devoid of contractions. THIS EPISODE: August 21, 1949. Program #47. Mayfair syndication. "A Story Goes With It". Commercials added locally. A beautiful doll in a wheelchair needs an operation, and it all depends on, "Never Despair." Damon Runyon (author), John Brown, Richard Sanville (director), Russell Hughes (adaptor), Vern Carstensen (production supervisor), Frank Gallop (announcer). 28:30.

International Blackmail (Aired March 20, 1950)
Dangerous Assignment stands as one of the most durable programs of its genre and era in the waning days of The Golden Age of Radio. Espionage or foreign intrigue dramas weren't particularly groundbreaking undertakings by the 1950s. Bulldog Drummond was the first of the more successful exemplars of Radio espionage and intrigue, running from 1941 to 1954, most often under the lead of the gifted character actor, George Coulouris. The Counterspy series had been well underway since 1942 and ran in one incarnation or another through 1954. The Man Called X had already aired--to great popular and critical acclaim--for almost five years prior to 1949. Indeed, within a year of airing Dangerous Assignment's Summer 1949 season, The Man Called X returned to the air for another two years. For one of those years, Dangerous Assignment and The Man Called X ran back to back in the NBC line-up. Of the two foreign intrigue anthologies, NBC seemed to continue to favor the Herbert Marshall drama, The Man Called X. Whether in deference to Marshall's seniority, its former high ratings between 1944 and 1948, or simply out of perceived popularity, Dangerous Assignment, while airing ahead of The Man Called X, never seemed to get the buildup that The Man Called X invariably received.

Archie Writes An Opera (Aired February 16, 1951)
Early in the show's life, however, its name was changed — first to Duffy's and, for four episodes, Duffy's Variety. A staffer for Bristol-Myers -- whose Ipana toothpaste was the show's early sponsor—persuaded the company's publicity director to demand the name change because the original title promoted "the hobby of drinking" too much for certain sensibilities. Bristol-Myers eventually admitted the staffer had little to go on other than a handful of protesting letters, and to the delight of fans who never stopped using the original name, anyway — the original title was restored permanently. The name change was often subverted by the Armed Forces Radio Network. When the AFRN rebroadcast those episodes for U.S. servicemen during World War II, the announcer referred to Duffy's Tavern. Radio's Duffy's Tavern didn't translate well to film or television. THIS EPISODE: February 16, 1951. NBC network origination, Nostalgia Broadcasting Corporation syndication. "Archie Writes An Opera". Commercials added locally. The program was recorded in Puerto Rico on January 27, 1951. Rimsky-Archikov, the famous composer, is writing an opera called, "The Two Barbers Of Seville." Don't miss the line, "Where's there's Seville, there's Sevay!" Ed Gardner (performer, director), Bert Gordon, Hazel Shermet (as "Miss Duffy"), John Cleary (producer), Cesar Concepcion (music director), Larry Rhine (writer), Al Johansen (writer), Harwood Hull (announcer), Sid Raymond (as "Finnegan"), Isabel Randolph, Catherine Randolph). 26:07.

Time And Time Again (Aired January 11, 1956)
X Minus One was a half-hour science fiction radio series broadcast from April 24, 1955 to January 9, 1958 in various timeslots on NBC. Initially a revival of NBC's Dimension X (1950-51), X Minus One is widely considered among the finest science fiction dramas ever produced for radio. The first 15 episodes were new versions of Dimension X episodes, but the remainder were adaptations of newly published science fiction stories by leading writers in the field, including Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, Robert A. Heinlein, Frederik Pohl and Theodore Sturgeon, along with a few original scripts. The series was cancelled after the 126th broadcast on January 9, 1958. THIS EPISODE: January 11, 1956. NBC network. "Time and Time Again". Sustaining. A soldier from the future (1975) is hit by a bomb during World War III and sent thirty years back into the past. The script was previously used on "Dimension X" on July 12, 1951. Clarke Gordon, Ernest Kinoy (writer), Fred Collins (announcer), H. Beam Piper (author), Herm Dinken, Jack Grimes, James Dukas, Joe DeSantis, Joseph Bell, Peter Fernandez, Richard Hamilton. 28:19. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Life Of Louis Pasteur (Aired April 13, 1946)
The list of films and actors on Academy Award Theater is very impressive. Bette Davis begins the series in Jezebel, with Ginger Rogers following in Kitty Foyle, and then Paul Muni in The Life of Louis Pasteur. The Informer had to have Victor Mclaglen, and the Maltese Falcon, Humphrey Bogart, Sidney Greenstreet (this movie was his first major motion picutre role) plus Mary Astor for the hat trick. Suspicion starred Cary Grant with Ann Todd doing the Joan Fontaine role, Ronald Coleman in Lost Horizon, and Joan Fontaine and John Lund were in Portrait of Jenny. How Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio were done is something to hear! THIS EPISODE: April 13, 1946. CBS network. "The Story of Louis Pasteur". Sponsored by: Squibb. A dramatization about the great scientist and his fight against ignorance and disease. Paul Muni. 30:14. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Candy Store Murder (Aired November 16, 1950)
The Line-Up stands as one of the most well-produced crime dramas of The Golden Age of Radio. The cast is comprised of top-tier, A-List talent from top to bottom. With Elliott Lewis directing his cast of some of the finest voice talent of the era--and top-drawer sound technicians to match--this series remains one of the best examples of the Crime Drama genre. Think of Calling All Cars, minus the jingoistic flag-waving, updated to contemporary 1950s crime themes, and peppered with the more authentic radio-verité atmospherics of Unit 99, Night Watch, and Dragnet, and you have The Line-Up. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: November 16, 1950. CBS network. "The Candy Store Murder". Sustaining. Lieutenant Guthrie solves a robbery and murder case in a candy store, with a station wagon as a clue. Two brothers are the main suspects, but an eye-witness fails to identify either one of them. William Johnstone, Wally Maher, Howard McNear, Raymond Burr, Jeanette Nolan, Sam Edwards, Jean Tatum, Clayton Post, Eddie Dunstedter (composer, conductor), Hy Averback, Jaime del Valle (producer, director), Blake Edwards (writer). 32:08.
