Adele Jergens and Glenn Langan
Crime/Detective Series (1947-1948)

Glenn LanganSet in the late 1940s, Mystery is My Hobby featured author Barton Drake, portrayed by Glen Lagan, and a case from his files. Drake is a mystery writer with a penchant for getting himself in trouble. Even though he was often searching for trouble and finding it, the show was never hard-boiled like Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe. Mystery is my Hobby's Drake was more like Lord Peter Wimsey, a worldly, man-about-town type of detective.

In an interesting twist, his side kick is police officer Noah Danton. Danton goes everywhere with Drake including trips out of the country to investigate mysteries. Either he worked for a very tolerant department or Drake paid his salary! As police officer's go, Danton is a bit dim. At the end of each episode, Drake has to explain to Danton how he solved the mystery.

old time radio pictureBroadcast by the Mutual Radio Network, Mystery is My Hobby was performed before a live audience. The show was on the air from 1945 to 1947. The original title was Murder is My Hobby but the sponsor thought the title was a bit harsh, especially since the sponsor was the Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company of Omaha --a life insurance company sponsoring a show with murder in the title just didn't seem right!
