The Falcon radio series premiered on the Blue Network April 10, 1943, and continued playing on NBC and Mutual until 1954. The Falcon was loosely based on the series of popular Falcon movies distributed by RKO. The Falcon was an alternate identity for detective Michael Waring. Like the Falcon movies, the radio plots mixed danger, romance, and comedy in equal parts. Each show began with a telephone ringing and Michael Waring, The Falcon, answering the phone. Speaking with a woman whose voice was never heard, Waring would explain that he had an urgent situation with which he had to deal. This led into the standard opening, followed by the week’s tale of adventure. Often, incompetent police were unable to solve the mysteries without his help. Originally sponsored by Gem Razor Blades, Waring was billed on radio as a freelance detective who was “always ready with a hand for oppressed men and an eye for repressed women”. Berry Kroeger, James Meighan, Les Tremayne, Les Damon, and George Petrie portrayed The Falcon over the radio run. 11/27/45 “Murder is a Family Affair (starring James Meighan)” 5/14/50 “The Case of the Amorous Book-keeper” 12/17/50 “The Case of the Baby Brother” 1/14/51 “The Case of the Happy Hoodlum” 1/28/51 “The Case of the Bellicose Boxer” 2/4/51 “The Case of the Neighbor’s Nightmare” 3/18/51 “The Case of the Witty Widow” 4/29/51 “The Case of the Big Talker” 7/3/52 “The Case of the Babbling Brooks” 7/18/51 “The Case of the Cautious Cousin” 8/22/51 “The Case of the Beautiful Bait” 7/24/52 “The Case of the Broken Key”
