Wednesday Night at the Radio!

Oh, mama. Pat Novak: For Hire. This one's called "Rory Malone" (20 March 1949), as if it mattered. The show was basically an excuse for Jack Webb to show off his amazing writing. Novak, describing the requisite babe:
She was a lovely girl, the sort of person you'd expect to see in a choir loft--about three hours after choir practice. Her hair was red, her eyes were cold as rigor mortis. And you knew the first time you met her that you'd been seeing her too often.
You won't believe the next few lines. They talk boners. On national radio. In 1949.

Great sound, too. And Raymond Burr as Hellman.
