ABOUT THIS OLD TIME RADIO SHOW:

Detective Drama (circa 1955)

The name was Steve Strong, but in the shadowy world of the New York underworld, he got to be known as "That Strong Guy" and so it stuck. Not that they're wrong, since a World War tends to toughen up even the most cautious. In the case of Steve Strong, it was the edge that he got pushed over, and it got him ready for the world of the Private Investigator. He works alone, in the Mike Hammer mode, but has the support of his secretary Sandra. Pal Captain Jim Daley of Homicide gets him out of the kind of jams that clipped dialogue and a stiff uppercut won't fix.

Old Vintage Tube RadioA few have mundane private dick basics, such as "Blackmail," and "Bottle of Death." The "Temple of Horror" sounds like something more fitting Terry and the Pirates or The Voyages of the Scarlet Queen. But we're in New York City here, or as near as the underworld gets to being "normal." The mean streets have a way of bringing out the hard line and quick reaction, and Steve Strong is up to the challenge.

No credits on these cases today, so a little more investigation is needed to bring us up to date with "That Strong Guy." In the meantime, there are double fistful of broadcasts that have turned up out of the estimated 28 that might have originally been produced. Again, the facts are missing since the case is considered closed, and That Strong Guy is no longer taking clients.

There are plenty of detectives to fill in your space hours. Here is a short list, but a few clicks will get you into a lot more "trouble" than you could ever bargain for. In that case, call the cops, such as Dragnet, or Gangbusters if you like the old days. Tales of the Texas Rangers show they were detectives in the post WWII modern mold as well, but were much more polite than your average gumshoe. Tough guy detectives include Sam Spade, Mike Hammer, Richard Diamond, Philip Marlowe, and that insurance investigator Johnny Dollar.
