A friend to those who have no friends, an enemy to those who make him an enemy! From out of the darkened streets of radio's imagination comes the legendary criminal-turned-crime-fighter Boston Blackie! Starring Chester Morris, radio's first Blackie - and Richard Kollmar, who became Blackie's true radio voice - here are 12 great episodes of this beloved crime thriller! Join co-stars Jan Miner, Tony Barrett, Maurice Tarplin, and Lesley Woods in capers of diamonds and double-cross, of black markets and blood stains.
In one of the goofiest slapstick comedies on the radio, Archie the bartender assaulted the English language and insulted most of Hollywood. Portrayed by series creator Ed Gardner, Archie had hard luck with the ladies. But he must have had some appeal to draw a group of guest stars like Marlene Dietrich, Gypsy Rose Lee, Chester Morris, Ed Wynn, Bob Crosby, Rudy Vallee, and more.
