Mystery Afoot

Tichnor Brothers Collection
Boston Public Library

Detectives are the theme today as we hear from Johnny Dollar and The Saint, starring Vincent Price. Behind the scenes, our old janitor buddy drops by with an odd employment request.

The Johnny Dollar episode, "The Funny Money Matter" originally aired on June 30th, 1957.

The Saint episode "Greed Causes Murder" originally aired on August 14th, 1949.

A communications student here at Idaho State University, Maclane has had a lifelong interest in radio. From listening to old time radio of decades past, to the modern commercial sports talk, country, or top 40 stations, the small town community stations, and now getting involved in public radio, Mac knows there's plenty to appreciate and learn about.
Brother of Maclane, Jake is a cultural hobbyist and curator of pre-1960s publications, radio and various ephemera. His collection of outdated media formats takes up a considerable amount of space and is frankly beginning to become a nuisance. A man can only own so many reel-to-reel machines before he needs to look into a storage locker.
