    In the early months of World War II, radio producer Louis G. Cowan was faced with a problem. Not long before the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, Cowan had joined the radio arm of the War Department's Special Services division, where his primary duties had been to produce radio-based propaganda for civilian audiences. Now, however, hundreds of thousands of newly enlisted soldiers were in desperate need of mainstream entertainment.

    “Doc” Turner was one of the least likely heroes that appeared in the pulp magazine stories. He was a little old pharmacist who ran a drug store in the slums of New York, where just about everyone came to him when they had problems. Oh, and what problems they had! Werewolves and vampires mixed in with extortionists and gangsters. And solve their problems he did, with the aid of his strapping redheaded assistant, mechanic Jack Ransom, and his young stock boy, Abe Ginsberg.

Pursued by the police, sought by the mob, the Master of Men crushed crime with a blazing intensity never witnessed before or since. Now he's back with a vengeance in a new series of audiobooks retelling his pulp-pounding exploits, as chronicled by Norvell W. Page, writing as Grant Stockbridge.

    Though the romantic drama anthology nature of Curtain Time usually eschewed any kind of "star", actor Olan Soule portrayed most of the male leads on the program, often opposite actresses like Betty Lou Gerson and Louise Fitch. (Soule later graduated to Nighter in 1943, frequently acting opposite Barbara Luddy.) Directed by Blair Walliser, with music by Henry Weber and the announcing chores handled by Don Gordon, the production offered plenty of the same fare as featured on First Nighter.

    When Columbia Workshop debuted on CBS in 1936, the concept of network radio was still in its infancy, just 10 years old. Many within the radio business were undecided about various aspects of this new medium, including whether or not it could yield anything of value, something that can be seen as art and not simply a forgettable derivative of popular culture.

Many within the radio business were undecided about various aspects of this new medium, including whether or not it could yield anything of value - something that can be seen as art and not simply a forgettable derivative of popular culture. The concept of Columbia Workshop, conceived by Irving Reis, was essentially to try new innovations on radio, to push the medium's boundaries.

    An underrated and long-running family series, Dr. Christian comes across today more as a quiet anthology of small-town life than as a straight medical drama, bringing the people of the small town of River's End to life through the eyes of the kindly Dr. Paul Christian. As portrayed by actor Jean Hersholt, Dr. Christian can perhaps best be described as a male Molly Goldberg with a medical degree; a gentle and well-meaning meddler who always manages to lead you in the right direction, whether you want to be led there or not.
