    In 1949 NBC brought handsome Irish American actor Brian Donlevy to the radio microphones as international troubleshooter Steve Mitchell in the spy series Dangerous Assignment. Mitchell worked for an unnamed US government intelligence agency, whose boss, “the Commissioner,” dispatched him to world trouble spots. Mitchell’s assignment was to solve problems in record time and in accordance with US interests. The radio series ran from 1949 to 1953, due in part to Donlevy’s terrific performances and the mystique of the foreign locations and situations, which radio listeners could create in their own “theater of the mind.” During its last year on radio, Donlevy formed a production company to convert the series to television, producing thirty-nine episodes for syndication. Enjoy twelve exciting, half-hour radio adventures of globe-trotting troubleshooter Steve Mitchell as he solves another dangerous assignment. “Italy: Thropp Foundation Stolen Relief Supplies” [first show] (9 Jul 49), “Switzerland: International Blackmail” (20 Mar 50) ,“Egypt: The Renew Sheik Haroun’s Uranium Deal” (27 Mar 50), “Trinidad: Recover Underwater Demolition Secrets” (10 Apr 50), “Alaska: Investigate Missing Scientists” (24 Apr 50), “Paris: Find Szabo and the Briefcase” (3 May 50), “Sweden: Smash Lecture Circuit Spy Ring” (10 May 50), “Burma: Solve Kent Jackson’s Murder” (24 May 50), “Vienna: Recover Lost Troop Movement Documents” (2 Aug 50), “Africa: Defeat African Hate Campaign” (9 Aug 50), “Hatia: Recover ‘Operation Fish Hook’ Data” (6 Jan 51), and “Madrid: Find Missing Scientist Dr. Wieczek” (13 Jan 51).

    Here are twelve episodes of the horror and mystery series written and produced by radio announcers beginning in 1946. There were several series under the Hall of Fantasy banner, all produced by Richard Thorne. The first originated from radio station KALL in Salt Lake City. Richard Thorne and Carl Greyson were announcers for the station and coproduced the bare-bones horror series beginning in 1946. Written or adapted by Robert Olson and directed by Thorne, the stories were mostly murder mysteries with traditional endings. This first series ended in 1947 when Thorne and Greyson went their separate ways. The Hall of Fantasy was revived in 1949, when by pure coincidence, Thorne and Greyson found themselves working together at WGN in Chicago. This time the series featured stories with shocking endings involving struggles against the supernatural in which man was usually the loser. In Chicago, actor Don Ameche’s brother, Jim Ameche, sometimes appeared in the episodes. In 1952 The Hall of Fantasy went nationwide over the Mutual network, with Thorne writing original horror stories and also adapting classics of literature, including Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Markheim” and Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.” Episodes included are: “The Perfect Script,” “The Judge’s House,” “Man-Size, in Marble,” “Markheim,” “The Mark of Shame,” “The Cask of Amontillado,” “The Black Figurine of Death,” “The Night the Fog Came,” “The Return from Death,” “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “Stone’s Revenge,” and “The Castle of Lavoka.”

    Here are twelve episodes of the adventures of an English journalist in the American West of the 1870s in this show from the golden age of radio. Frontier Gentleman was a radio western series aimed at adults that aired on CBS radio for one season in 1958. It starred radio veteran John Dehner as J. B. Kendall, a reporter for the London Times. The series followed the adventures of the freelance journalist as he roamed the western United States in search of stories for his newspaper. Kendall often crossed paths with well-known historical figures, such as Jesse James, Calamity Jane, and Wild Bill Hickok. And to survive in those turbulent times, he became as proficient with a gun as he was with a pen. The announcer opened each show with the following: “Herewith, an Englishman’s account of life and death in the West. As a reporter for the London Times, he writes his colorful and unusual accounts. But as a man with a gun, he lives and becomes a part of the violent years in the new territories. Now, starring John Dehner, this is the story of J. B. Kendall, frontier gentleman.” Frontier Gentleman was written, produced, and directed by Anthony Ellis. The supporting cast included Harry Bartell, Lawrence Dobkin, Virginia Gregg, Joseph Kearns, Jack Moyles and Vic Perrin. Music was by Wilbur Hatch and Jerry Goldsmith. This collection includes the following episodes: “A Meeting with Sitting Bull” (9 Feb 58), “The Claim Jumpers” (9 Mar 58), “The Actress” (23 Mar 58), “Aces and Eights” (20 Apr 58), “Duel for a School Marm” (1 Jun 58), “Sheriff Belljoy’s Prisoner” (8 Jun 58), “The Well” (15 Jun 58), “A Wagon Full of Cats” (10 Aug 58), “The Fastest Gun That Never Was” (17 Aug 58), “A Horse for Kendall” (14 Sep 58), “The Preacher” (19 Oct 58), and “The Rainmaker” (26 Oct 58).

    From the golden age of radio comes twelve episodes of this popular and realistic police procedural. The Lineup was a hard-boiled drama. Like Dragnet, it realistically showed police doing their jobs. The show always began with a police sergeant ordering suspects to stand at attention so that the victim, behind one-way glass, could try to identify the criminal. While the lineup was rarely the key to solving the case, it did give the show a rhythm and also allowed for humor in the interrogation of the suspects by the sergeant. Bill Johnstone, best known as one of the voices of The Shadow, starred as Lieutenant Ben Guthrie. Wally Maher originally played Sergeant Matt Grebb, until the actor’s death. His character was replaced by Sergeant Pete Carger, played by Jack Moyles. The supporting cast members were a who’s who of Hollywood radio actors, including Howard McNear, William Conrad, Barton Yarborough, Hy Averback, and Herb Butterfield. The series began as a summer replacement for The FBI in Peace and War in 1950 but soon got its own time slot and would remain on radio until the spring of 1953 before making a successful transition to television. Twelve episodes included in this collection are “The Grocery Store Matter” (1 Feb 51), “The Silver Swan Case” (22 Feb 51), “The Molly about Seven Case” (27 Feb 51), “The Pointless Pierson Polemic Polarity” (5 Sep 51), “The Senile Slugging Case” (12 Sep 51), “The Fur-Flaunting Floozy” (26 Sep 51), “The Wild, Wild Woman Case” (4 Oct 51), “The Frivolous Forger Fracas” (11 Oct 51), “The Nicely Nixed Nixon Case” (18 Oct 51), “The Pixie-Picker Pickle Case” (8 Nov 51), “Bentley’s Boo-Boo Case” (15 Oct 52), and “Buggered Bunco Boys” (12 Nov 52).

    Jeff Regan, Investigator came to CBS Radio on July 10, 1948, with Jeff Regan as a tough private eye working for a detective agency run by Anthony J. Lyon. Regan introduced himself on each show with “I get ten a day and expenses. They call me the Lyon’s Eye.” Lyon, portrayed by Wilms Herbert, ran the International Detective Bureau, a small private investigations firm in downtown Los Angeles, with often oversized ambitions. Regan handled rough assignments from Lyon, with whom he was not always on good terms. Actor Jack Webb played Regan as tough and tenacious, with a dry sense of humor. When Webb left the show in December 1948, the series ended but was resurrected in October 1949 with a new cast. Frank Graham starred as Jeff Regan, and Frank Nelson portrayed his boss, Anthony J. Lyon. This version lasted until August of 1950.

    Made as a prequel to the hit film The Third Man, this radio show was created to follow the adventures of the popular character Harry Lime, played here, and in the movie, by Orson Welles. The 1949 film The Third Man won an Academy Award and was an international success, called “magic” by Roger Ebert and “one of the finest films ever made” by the New York Times. Written by New York Times bestselling novelist Graham Greene and directed by Carol Reed, the production starred Joseph Cotten as Holly Martins, an America who travels to postwar Vienna at the request of his old friend Harry Lime, played by Orson Welles. But it was the character of Harry Lime who nearly stole the show. While living in London, Orson Welles became acquainted with producer Harry Alan Towers, who convinced Welles to appear in a radio series based on his character in The Third Man and to be titled The Lives of Harry Lime. Since Lime meets his end in the sewers of Vienna in the movie, Towers, with Welles’ involvement, decided to make the radio show a prequel. Produced in England and recorded in London’s IBC Studios, The Lives of Harry Lime had an authentic continental flavor, with adventures taking place in such exotic locales as Paris, Rome, Venice, Tangiers, and the French Riviera. Thanks to brilliant scripts, expertly performed by Welles and a stock company of talented actors, the underworld activities of Harry Lime and his always-questionable associates make for great entertainment. Episodes included in this collection are “Too Many Crooks” (3 Aug 51), “Clay Pigeon” (17 Aug 51), “A Ticket to Tangiers” (24 Aug 51), “The Bohemian Star” (7 Sep 51), “Love Affair” (14 Sep 51), “Rogue’s Holiday” (21 Sep 51), “Work of Art” (28 Sep 51), “Operation Music Box” (5 Oct 51), “Golden Fleece” (12 Oct 51), “Blue Bride” (19 Oct 51), “Every Frame Has a Silver Lining” (26 Oct 51), and “Mexican Hat Trick” (2 Nov 51).

    Sam Spade was a hard-boiled detective with cold detachment, a keen eye for detail, and unflinching determination to achieve his own justice. The character of Sam Spade was created by writer Dashiell Hammett in 1930 for his crime story The Maltese Falcon, and for most people, the character is closely associated with actor Humphrey Bogart, who played Sam Spade in the third and most famous film version of the story. In 1946 William Spier, one of radio’s top producers, brought Sam Spade to the airwaves starring newcomer Howard Duff with Lurene Tuttle (and occasionally Sandra Gould) as Effie Perrine, Spade’s secretary. Duff took a more tongue-in-cheek approach to the character than did the novel or movie. Dashiell Hammett lent his name to the radio series but did little more than cash the checks sent to him for the privilege. Scriptwriters were Jason James and Bob Tallman, who received an Edgar Award in 1947 for best radio drama from the Mystery Writers of America. Howard Duff starred as Spade until 1951 when Stephen Dunne took the role. Starring here are Starring Howard Duff or Stephen Dunne as Sam Spade, with Lurene Tuttle, Paul Frees, Wally Maher, Verna Felton, Shirley Mitchell, Lou Merrill, and others. Episodes included in this collection are “The Bow Window Caper” (9 Nov 47), “The Critical Author Caper” (15 Aug 48), “The Sugar Kane Caper” (3 Oct 48), “The Overjord Caper” (5 Jun 49), “The Sure Thing Caper” (9 Feb 51), “The Soap Opera Caper” (16 Feb 51), “The Shot in the Dark Caper” (23 Feb 51), “The Crab Louis Caper” (2 Mar 51), “The Spanish Prisoner Caper” (9 Mar 51), “The Kimberly Cross Caper” (23 Mar 51), “The Vendetta Caper” (30 Mar 51), and “The Civic Pride Caper” (13 Apr 51).

Orson Welles, who was living in London at the time, was both host and narrator for these dramatized stories based on Scotland Yard’s Black Museum, which housed its collection of murder weapons and various ordinary objects once associated with historical crime cases. Walking through the museum, Welles would pause at one of the exhibits, and his description of an artifact served as a device to lead into a tale of terror or a brutal murder. In the weekly opening, Welles states: “The Black Museum…a repository of death. Here in the grim stone structure on the Thames, which houses Scotland Yard, is a warehouse of homicide, where everyday objects…a woman’s shoe, a tiny white box, a quilted robe…all are touched by murder.” The series aired in the United States in 1952 on the Mutual Network. It was produced by Harry Alan Towers. Ira Marion wrote the scripts, and Sidney Torch composed and conducted the music for the series. “A Blued .22 Caliber Pistol”, “A Wool Jacket”, “The Canvas Bag”, “An Open-End Wrench”, “The Tan Shoe”, “The Notes”, “The Spotted Bed Sheet”, “An Old Wooden Mallet”, “A Champagne Glass”, “The Small White Boxes”, “The Raincoat”, and “The Gas Receipt”

    The Aldrich Family was a popular situation comedy that was heard on radio and seen in films, on television, and in comic books. Teenager Henry Aldrich, the creation of playwright Clifford Goldsmith, was an endearingly bumbling kid growing awkwardly into adolescence. Episodes revolved around Henry’s misadventures with girls, his family, and his friends. Henry Aldrich was portrayed on radio by twenty-something Ezra Stone when The Aldrich Family launched as a summer replacement program for The Jack Benny Show on NBC in 1939. He kept the lead role until 1942, followed by others, including Bobby Ellis, who became the last Henry Aldrich in 1952. The show had a top-ten rating within two years of its launch, landing it solidly alongside The Jack Benny Show and Bob Hope’s The Pepsodent Show. Earning $3,000 a week, Goldsmith was the highest paid writer in radio, and his show became a prototype for the teen-oriented situation comedies that followed on radio and television. Included in this collection are twelve episodes from 1952 and 1953:“The Barter System” (21 Sep 1952)“He-Man or Mouse?” (28 Sep 1952)“Class Debt Chairman” (5 Oct 1952)“The Big Deal” (12 Oct 1952)“The Debating Team” (16 Nov 1952)“The Thanksgiving Turkey” (22 Nov 1952)“Henry’s Father is Sick” (30 Nov 1952)“The Lost Watch” (7 Dec 1952)“The English Project” (11 Jan 1953)“Love Letter Mix-Up” (25 Jan 1953)“Latin Homework” (15 Mar 1953)“The Delivery Bicycle” (26 Apr 1953)
