Radio Detective Story Hour Episode 243 – A Crime to Fit the Punishment

Clayton CollyerThis time we hear again from the script writer voice of Ken Crossen who wrote many scripts for a number of suspense and mystery thriller series including this one from the Molle’ Mystery Theater in 1944. Crossen was also a well-known pulp and mystery fiction writer under the name of M.E. Chaber, whose Milo March series were best sellers.
This episode stars Clayton Collyer, who was portraying radio’s Superman at the time while performing in other series. Collyer portrays Jonathan Pierce, and antiques dealer and amateur criminologist who is called in to help solve a crime. All in all, a lighter mystery but a good plot with well-developed characters.

Music under is Sonny Criss playing Billy Strayhorn’s “Day Dream.”
