    That's Boston Blackie, safecracker turned crime fighter and a long-running favorite with fans of straight-ahead detective fiction in a wide range of media. Beginning inauspiciously in a 1919 short story by author Jack Boyle, Blackie progressed from the printed page into silent films, then into talkies - and finally, in the 1940s, into radio. The first radio Blackie was Chester Morris, who played the role in a long series of B movies during the 1940s.

    Combining Dick Powell's tough-guy image with his impressive way with a song, Richard Diamond, Private Detective featured a hard-boiled gumshoe who rarely took himself too seriously; he was simply an ex-cop who had decided to hang out his own shingle in the investigation business. He demonstrated a breezy insouciance to authority, generally concluded each case with a song sung to his sweetheart, and indulged himself with in-jokes, many referencing other radio detectives.

    Big-nosed, brash, and boisterous, beloved entertainer Jimmy Durante parlayed a career in vaudeville, nightclubs, and Broadway shows into a radio career highlighted by many successful programs throughout the 1930s and 1940s.

    Like its predecessor, Dragnet, Tales of the Texas Rangers adapted actual police cases for its broadcasts. Leading each week's investigation was Texas Ranger Jayce Pearson, portrayed by movie star Joel McCrea. Because the stories were set in the present, Pearson used the latest scientific techniques to identify criminals. Unlike Joe Friday, Pearson didn't have a regular partner, typically working with the local sheriff instead.

    There were several newspaper-based dramas during radio's golden age, including Box 13, Let George Do It, and Casey, Crime Photographer, but Night Beat was a cut above. It was the story of Randy Stone, hard-nosed Chicago Star newsman, and his quest for the human-interest story behind the headlines.

    The Big Show presented a weekly mixture of comedy, drama, and music from such guest stars as Jimmy Durante, Ethel Merman, Danny Thomas, Groucho Marx, Fanny Brice, Bob Hope, Eddie Cantor, Rudy Vallee, Judy Garland, and Fred Allen - the latter graduating to semiregular/contributing writer status. In fact each program found the guests introducing themselves by name; the introductions completed with a husky voice intoning, "...and my name, dahlings, is Tallulah Bankhead".

    Screen legend Harold Lloyd hosts volume two of The Old Gold Comedy Theatre, a 1944-45 NBC anthology series featuring some of the top names in film and radio. Presenting half-hour versions of popular film comedies in much the same way that The Lux Radio Theater did with drama, this delightful and star-studded series was long considered a lost show until an almost complete set of recordings was found in Lloyd's basement - recordings that have now been restored to sparkling audio fidelity by Radio Archives.
