    THE MATTER OF REASONABLE DOUBT YOURS TRULY, JOHNNY DOLLAR

    THE MATTER OF REASONABLE DOUBT YOURS TRULY, JOHNNY DOLLAR

    Bob Bailey, generally thought of as the most popular of the Johnny Dollars, brought a new interpretation to the character – tough, but not hard-boiled; streetwise, but not overly cynical, Bailey's Dollar was smart and gritty when he had to be. But Bailey's Johnny Dollar was also human. His character would get emotionally involved in a number of his cases. He had a streak of impatience, and would occasionally not fully listen to a witness and rush off on a tangent before realizing his mistake.

    The weekday serialized episodes are generally acknowledged as some of the finest radio detective shows ever produced. There were fifty six multi-part shows in all: fifty four five-part shows, one six-part show, and one nine-part show. The serialized episodes continued until November 2, 1956 when the series again reverted to a once a week, thirty minute format. Bob Bailey continued in the lead, until "The Empty Threat Matter" of November 27, 1960, when the Hollywood run ended.Support our show and checkout www.simplisafe.com/1001!

GNXgypsy ,

Great but...

I love old school radio drama. Been listening for years. On AM radio before I found this podcast.

My only beef is the Progressive insurance ad that plays repeatedly. Assumes everyone has a “cleaning lady” come to their new house?

Please. That idea and assumption is as old as these replayed broadcast. And in case your wondering, no, I’m not talking about a historic ad for Lucky Strikes or Signal Oil.

This is modern ad. And it’s inappropriate. Makes me mad every time is I hear it. Which is several times per episode.

Reminds me of how much I appreciate my chosen insurance company. Geico. They run funny ads. Not crusty offensive stuff like said beef.

Decent podcast

Descent podcast for nostalgia. Just need new sponsors - sponsors other than fascists.

New Mexico Gal ,

Mystery Theater!

Great episodes! Especially like the Mystery Theater ones. Wonderful selection by Jon.
