MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
Michael Shayne, "the reckless, red-headed Irishman" was a popular hard-boiled detective created by American crime novelist Brett Haliday. Mike blew into Miami just after WWII, making crime pay by fighting it with a license and an attitude. Like Mike Hammer and other Phillip Marlowe wannabes, he was a loner. He was a guy with a sense of humor, like Sam Spade or Richard Diamond. He was different from the others, however, because in the first of the Haliday novels, Mike's happily married, but suddenly his wife is tragically murdered, and that hits Mike like no sucker punch before or after. Grief-stricken, Shayne loses himself the gumshoe grind, prowling the darker streets of the American dream complete with the (then) very adult themes of drugs and middle-class adultery. Shayne was the genuine fighting Irish, and his believability made him a popular private eye with the Post World War veterans who had lived more than their share of violent morality.
The radio version of Mike's exploits debuted as Michael Shayne, Private Detective in the fall of 1944 with the fine radio actor Wally Maher as Mike. In the fall of 1946, the show went national for a year. Mutual did it again in 1948, titled The New Adventures of Michael Shayne, starring the hunky movie star Jeff Chandler. Many like Chandler's Shayne, Jeff did the job for two years, of which nearly three dozen episodes or so are available. (Chandler played the love interest in Our Miss Brooks, proving he could handle comedy as well as tough guys.
