  1. Jack Benny – Murder In The Library. 380515.

A favorite of 214 people. Jokes abound on horses, and horse racing as the cast get ready to spoof a murder mystery. Jack and they guys fumble their way along, while Mary keeps the body count rising.

Enjoy this along with 228 others. Part of a series to track the mundane journey to Mars. Dangers and alarms sound when one of the space ships have a problem, and a missing crew.

 

  1. Gunsmoke – No Indians. 540802

A favorite of at least 250 people. Matt Dillon may have an Indian uprising on his hands. Worried settlers may find there is something fishy going on though.

 

  1. 21st Precinct – The Friend. ep9, 530901.

A top pick of 256 people. The uniformed police of the 21st precinct have their typically mundane battle with crime take a turn for the spectacular. A murder worthy of tabloid attention lands in their laps.

 

  1. Let George Do It – The Father Who Had Nothing To Say. 480913

Seen by 317. A family embarrassment needs George Valentine to clear his name, and reconcile a father and son.

 

  1. Suspense – Death Flies Blind. 430504

A favorite of 520. A Navy officer finds himself at the center of a mystery of murder on an airplane. Where did the crew go? Who is behind the suspense in the air, and what do they want?

 

  1. X Minus One – Zero Hour, Bradbury. ep26, 551123.

See why 873 others liked this one. A radio presentation of a classic moment of science fiction by Ray Bradbury. Invaders from space use kids to pave the way as they play the game with them.

 

Wow. What a year. Science fiction nails the top slot by a huge margin, followed by suspense, and detectives. Comedy is still represented by Jack Benny and Red Skelton. What about Blair of the Mounties? Talk about a sleeper, but a gem of a show in the vane of police, crime, and detective arenas.

 

I noticed some of my personal favorites far from the final race, and others lurking just under the radar. Keep on visiting Retro-otr.com, the main home page of the Retro Radio Podcast. Let’s see where your favorite shows will land next year.
