The Adventures of Frank Race - Pgm 26

May 16th, 2009

We're up to program 26 in our almost complete run of "The Adventures of Frank Race", continuing weekly on the blog over the next few months.  This radio noir series about a two-fisted vet turned insurance investigator was recorded circa 1949 for syndication and was heard on stations around the country through the 1950s.

This week, Paul Dubov as Frank Race finds himself involved in "The Adventure of the Morman Country", perhaps the only old time radio drama I can recall that involves Mormans in the plot.

The show, as usual, was transferred to digital directly from a set of red vinyl Bruce Eels and Associates transcriptions, matrix numbers UR-150749 A-6 and UR-150750 A-6.
