Drama (1947 - 1948)
Studio One is an excellent series turning short stories,
novels, and plays into radio bliss. It was sadly cancelled after just one
season due to what some believe was director Fletcher Markle's
perfectionism and unwillingness to hire known actors and actresses.
Markle wanted the stories to shine and not the stars.

Nonetheless, the shows are top quality entertainment. The series
evolved ironically into the Ford
Theater which took the opposite approach to Studio
One in that it was over saturated with top-name Hollywood celebrities. Studio
One later became a television series by the same name.
