    Richard Diamond, Private Detective - $50,000 Diamond Heist - 11/12/49

    Richard Diamond, Private Detective - $50,000 Diamond Heist - 11/12/49

    This Episode: Richard Diamond is framed with diamonds, stolen from the Police Commissioner! The headlines in the paper that morning reported that the police commissioner’s house was robbed of $50,000 worth of diamonds last night and his gardener was murdered. Later Mr Burton calls upon Richard Diamond and pays him $500 to deliver a package of important papers to Philadelphia. Diamond suspects that someone is trying to frame him for the diamond heist.

    Richard Diamond, Private Detective came to NBC in 1949. Diamond was a slick, sophisticated detective, with a sharp tongue for folks who needed it. Diamond enjoyed the detective life, but not as much as entertaining his girl, Helen Asher. After each show, he would croon a number to his Park Avenue sweetheart. Mr. Powell, a former song and dance man, was perfect for the role. He added an extra dimension to the 40's hokey private eye drama.

    Yours Truly Johnny Dollar - The Yankee Pride Matter - October 14, 1950

    Yours Truly Johnny Dollar - The Yankee Pride Matter - October 14, 1950

    This Episode: Johnny investigates murder, intrigue and sabotage in mysterious Singapore. Carl Bush called Johnny Dollar with a marine insurance headache and an offer of a fat commission. He called Johnny because he knew Singapore and the policy in question for $300,000 was being delayed out there, a time clause. The reasons given were mechanical breakdown on the ship, one breakdown after the other and Bush wanted to know whether they were accidental, sabotage or both…

    Yours Truly Johnny Dollar was one of the longest-running detective series on radio. It aired on CBS Radio for 15 minutes from 1948 to 1962, making it among the last series broadcast on air as the listeners' interest on radio started to wane during the 1960s.

    Johnny Dollar, the series lead character, was an insurance investigator. Each episode began with a phone call from insurance executives, asking him to work on an unusual claim. This would then require Dollar to go on a journey across the United States, or sometimes on other countries. Each case he handled was referred to as a "matter," some instances of which were "The Forbes Matter," "The Silver Blue Matter," and "The Price of Fame Matter." Such titles and format were used throughout the series' run.

While in Rehab these Old Time Radio Classics were a bright spot in the day. Love to soak up all the old favorites I remember on the radio when I was a kid.
