Welcome to Broadway! Your tour guide: homicide detective Danny Clover (Larry Thor). He holds his exhaustion in check, knowing full well that his dangerous dealings with the underbelly of the Great White Way will begin again come the dawn.
"A Classic Set of Old Time Tales"
Broadway Is My Beat was a dark, gritty radio crime drama that ran on CBS from 1949 until 1954. The series was originally broadcast from New York, with Anthony Ross portraying Times Square Police Detective Danny Clover. Produced by Lester Gottlieb, it was directed by John Dietz. But by the 13th episode, the series moved to Hollywood (still set in NYC) with producer Elliott Lewis directing a new cast, with scripts by Morton Fine and David Friedkin (the duo that would later write and develop TV's popular secret-agent series I Spy).
It's the brightest street in the world - and the darkest. It all depends on your point of view. Just ask Detective Danny Clover, who's seen it all. Larry Thor stars as the world-weary Times Square homicide investigator who is still sentimental about the street in these 16 atmospheric radio adventures! Clover stalks justice through the glitz and through the gutter, undaunted by wrong turns, obstructions, or traps. At least Sgt. Tartaglia (Charles Calvert) and Sgt. Muggavan (Jack Kruschen) are on his side.
