Guest Is Joan Bennett (Aired January 5, 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. THIS EPISODE: January 5, 1951. NBC network origination, Nostalgia Broadcasting Corporation syndication. Commercials added locally. Archie tries to promote a date with "Guest Joan Bennett". A different script than cat. #7872. The program may be dated January 26, 1951. Ed Gardner, Bert Gordon, Charlie Cantor, Joan Bennett. 29:11. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

To Have & To Hold (Aired August 12, 1945)
With The Sealed Book, each epsisode opened with the sound of the great gong, followed by Philip Clarke's observation that the Keeper of The Book had once again opened the door to the secret vault, within which was contained the 'great sealed book' recording 'all the secrets and mysteries of mankind through the ages.' At the end of all but the last episode, Clarke would tell listeners to tune in the following week when "the sound of the great gong heralds another strange and exciting tale from... the sealed book." THIS EPISODE: August 12, 1945. Program #22. Mutual network origination, Michelson syndication. "To Have and To Hold". Commercials added locally. A young girl visits an old aunt who hasn't been seen by anyone for the last forty years! This program has also been dated October 14, 1945 on WGN, Chicago. Phillip Clarke (host), Robert A. Arthur (writer), David Kogan (writer), Jock MacGregor (producer, director). 29:53. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Adventure Of The Brooklyn Accent (Aired October 25, 1949)
Each episode opened with a one-minute organ theme and then the following from announcer Art Gilmore: "Many things were changed during the war; the face of the earth was altered and the people of the Earth changed. Before the war, Frank Race was an attorney, but he traded his law books for the cloak-and-dagger of the OSS. When it was over, his former life was over, too... adventure had become his business! " Frank Race mainly investigated international insurance scams around the globe in various exotic locations, making him something of a cross between James Bond and Johnny Dollar. After Tom Collins played the title role for the first 22 episodes, Paul Dubov took over the lead role. Tony Barnett portrayed Race's sidekick, Mark Donovan. THIS EPISODE: October 25, 1949. Program #26. Broadcasters Program Syndicate syndication. "The Adventure Of The Brooklyn Accent". Commercials added locally. Race is in the South, trying to find William Beading to give him $20,000. A gambling ship and burnt pies lead to murder. The date and program number are subject to correction. Paul Dubov, Tony Barrett, Buckley Angel (writer, director), Joel Murcott (writer, director), Bruce Eells (producer), Ivan Ditmars (organist), Art Gilmore (announcer), Frank Lovejoy, Wilms Herbert, Lillian Buyeff, William Johnstone, Michael Ann Barrett. 26:43.

Murder With Muriel (Aired October 25, 1945)
The gimmick in Rogue's Gallery was the presence of an alter ego, "Eugor," who arrived in the middle of the show to give Rogue enough information for his final deduction. Eugor was a state of mind, achieved when Rogue was knocked unconcious. Eugor would appear cackling like the host of Hermit's Cave and imparted some vital information the hero had overlooked. Rogue would then awaken with a vague idea of what to do next. Rogue's Gallery also starred different actors as Rogue, in later incarnations of the series, but Richard Powell was the most popular. This series preceded Richard Powell's most famous series, Richard Diamond, Private Detective. 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. THIS EPISODE: October 25, 1945. Mutual network. "Murder With Muriel". Sponsored by: Fitch's Shampoo, Fitch's Shaving Cream. Joe Layton has been murdered for his half of a map worth $25,000. Rogue's expecting the other half. Surprise: Richard Rogue does not get hit on the head during this program! Dee Englebach (producer, director), Dick Powell, Leith Stevens (composer, conductor), Ray Buffum (writer), Peter Leeds. 29:37. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Old Die Rich (Aired March 26, 1953)
The host of the show was Raymond Edward Johnson, of Inner Sanctum fame. Mr. Johnson handled Tales Of Tomorrow openings in a similar fashion to Inner Sanctum openings, but with a "science fiction" flavor, instead of a "macabre" sense. The shows of this series were quite good, borrowing ideas from stories in "Galaxy" magazine. Some of the story titles may seem familiar, like "The Stars Are The Styx", "The Girls From Earth" or "The Old Die Rich". These titles would appear later in CBS's X MINUS ONE. "Watch Bird" would later be done in South Africa, in a series entitled SF68. But radio was on the decline. Tales Of Tomorrow lasted only until April of that year. THIS EPISODE: March 26, 1953. Program #13. ABC network. "The Old Die Rich". Sustaining. The program is produced in co-operation with Galaxy magazine. The system cue has been deleted. H. L. Gold (author), Raymond Edward Johnson (host), John Raby, Ed Blaney (special effects), Maurice Tarplin, Bob Prescott (special effects), Michael Sklar (adaptor), Joe Durante (engineer), Bobby Christian (composer, conductor), Rolly Bester. 31:56.

Death Walked In (1956) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
ABC Mystery Time was hosted by Don Dowd and starred Sir Laurence Olivier. Great special effects will grab your attention, accented by creepy organ rips. Stories are offered such as death gathered round a card table at a local chapter of The Suicide Club, or a man who desperately tries to hire a 24 hour bodyguard all the while trying to make himself the victim of a murder, and other baffling peculiar tales of yore. Also known as Mystery Time and Mystery Time Classics, this one is sure to excite and mystify. Unfortunately this is an old time radio show with few surviving episodes in existence. THIS EPISODE: 1956. ABC network. "Death Walked In". A beautiful door-to-door book salesman moves in and breaks up a happy home. The date is approximate. The program is also known as, "Mystery Time," "Mystery Time Classics" and "Masters Of Mystery.

A Shocking Still Life (Aired May 9, 1951)
As a detective--gentleman or otherwise--Rex Harrison lends a distinctively intelligent and understated confidence to the role. He's not quite as nonchalant as The Thin Man's Nick Charles, not as arrogant as Philo Vance, and not as melodramatic as Sherlock Holmes or Radio's Philip Marlowe. In short, he's both 'just right' and entirely fascinating--and competent--as detective Rex Saunders. Leon Janney's rendition of Saunders' assistant, Alec, complements Harrison's delivery of his Saunders characterization. Not the typical stooge assistant, nor quite as clever as Nero Wolfe's Archie, Leon Janney's Alec is given the same latitude as some of Radio's other more helpful detective assistants. Harrison and Janney complement each other quite well throughout the series. The two great actors in their own fields are aided with equally capable New York voice talent--some of Radio's finest, including Jackson Beck, Alice Frost, Anne Seymour and Elspeth Eric. The writing for the series was also consistently compelling. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: May 9, 1951. NBC network. "A Shocking Still Life". Sponsored by: RCA Victor. Rex Harrison, Edward Adamson (writer), Kenneth Banghart (announcer), Leon Janney, Barbara Weeks, Himan Brown (director). 23:25. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Murder By Experts - The Unseeing Witness (Aired September 26, 1949)
Murder By Experts was a radio drama anthology series that ran on American radio from 1949-1951, and was hosted first by John Dickson Carr, and later by Brett Halliday. Evidently, a mystery, authored by a leading crime fiction writer, was presented, and "guest experts," such as Alfred Hitchcock or Craig Rice, were invited to solve it. Or maybe not -- nobody seems to know much about this one. David Kogan, the writer/creator of Murder by Experts, also created and wrote The Mysterious Traveler. Guest experts: Alfred Hitchcock, Craig Rice. Guest stars: Ann Shepard, Larry Haines, Carl Eastman, Ann Sheperd, Bill Zuckert, Ralph Camargo, Burt Cullen, Lawson Zerbe, Marilyn Erskin. THIS EPISODE: September 26, 1949. Mutual network. "The Unseeing Witness". Sustaining. Duval, the owner of "The Pelican Club" has been murdered. Johnny and "The Duchess" attempt to solve a locked room mystery. "Melvin The Muscle," serving the champagne, was the last to see Duval alive. John Dickson Carr (host), Andrew Phillips (writer), Ann Shephard, Larry Haines, Robert A. Arthur (producer, director), David Kogan (producer, director), William Zuckert, Kermit Murdock, Richard Dupage (composer), Emerson Buckley (conductor), Russ Dunbar (announcer), George Gordon, Lawson Zerbe, Roger De Koven. 29:54.

An Old Woman Found Strangled In The Park (Aired December 27, 1951)
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. It's also been one of the most difficult series to collect over the years. The good news is that with new episodes surfacing each year, there's every possibility that we'll soon have a complete run of the series to enjoy in its entirety. Bill Johnstone gives his usual solid performance as Lieutenant Ben Guthrie of the San Francisco Police Department. He's aided for the first year of the run by the equally solid Wally Maher, with his gritty, sardonic voice characterizations. The stellar list of non-recurring talent represents some of the most respected names in Radio--and Television: Raymond Burr, Jay Novello, Joe Kearns, Elliott Lewis, Virginia Gregg, Ed Begley, Bill Bouchey, Herb Butterfield, Barton Yarborough, Wilms Herbert, Jeanette Nolan, Ted de Corsia, Howard McNear and Bill Conrad. It just doesn't get better than that. Show Notes From The Digital Deli.
