Escape. original radio broadcasts( )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Escape, a dramatic anthology series, concentrated primarily on tales of high adventure based on works by esteemed authors like Rudyard Kipling, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and H.G. Wells. Though it may not have received the attention lavished on other more well-known series, from 1947 to 1954, it managed to transcend its mostly network-sustained origins to provide top-quality entertainment, relying on outstanding performers like Elliott Lewis, Jeanette Nolan, and Hans Conried, as well as distinguished veterans like William N. Robson and Norman MacDonnell to oversee the production and direction. Week in and week out, Escape demonstrated that it was truly an outstanding and memorable show...even if it was lacking the Hollywood stars that attracted big-money sponsorship

The Whistler( Recording )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Whistler was one of radio's top mystery programs airing from May 16, 1942 until September 22, 1955. The Whistler was an ominous narrator who opened each episode with, "I am the Whistler, and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales, many secrets hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows. I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak." The opening dialog was heard over the echo of footsteps and Wilbur Hatch's haunting signature thirteen-note theme, whistled each week by Dorothy Roberts. The stories followed an effective formula in which a person's criminal acts were typically undone by their own missteps. The Whistler narrated, often commenting directly on the action in the manner of a Greek chorus, taunting the criminal from an omniscient perspective. One of the show's trademarks was the ironic twist endings that helped serve as a payoff for the listener. Bill Forman had the title role of host and narrator the longest. Others who portrayed the Whistler included Gale Gordon, Lucille Ball's future television costar; Joseph Kearns, Mr. Wilson on the television series Dennis the Menace; Marvin Miller, soon to be television's Michael Anthony on The Millionaire; Bill Johnstone, the Shadow on radio from 1938-1943; and Everett Clarke

Yours truly, Johnny Dollar( Recording )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First heard on network radio in 1948, Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar chronicled the adventures of freelance insurance investigator Johnny Dollar, "the man with the action-packed expense account." For fourteen years it was one of the most popular detective shows on the air, lasting until the final days of network radio drama in 1962. Each story started with a phone call from an insurance executive calling on Johnny Dollar to investigate an unusual claim. His investigations usually required him to travel to distant locales and often involved murder. The stories were recounted in flashback, as Dollar listed each line item from his expense account: "Item one, $3.75 cab fare to the airport." Over the years, many actors portrayed Johnny Dollar, including Charles Russell, John Lund, and Edmund O'Brien. But in 1955 Bob Bailey took over as the series was switching to a new dynamic format of seventy-five-minute storylines told in five fifteen-minute installments, Monday through Friday. While other radio shows were waning in the mid-1950s, Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar was at its peak. Experts place these adventures in with the best of the best of radio's golden age
