    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.

    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.

It was the story of Randy Stone, a hard-nosed Chicago Star newsman, and his quest for the human-interest story behind the headlines. Frank Lovejoy starred as Randy Stone, who came to vivid life thanks to expert scripts by Russell Hughes, Larry Marcus, E. Jack Neuman, and John Michael Hayes. Lovejoy's distinctive voice and approach to the role, combined with top performances by veteran radio actors, gave Night Beat a noir style that listeners loved.

    Screen legend Harold Lloyd hosts volume one 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.

    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.
