Bob Bailey & Dick Powell
Hello MPIR Fans,
A quick note here, just finished up with uploading the radio files for the mystery stream. Now featuring the radio works of Bob Baily, and Dick Powell.
Bob Bailey (born Robert Bainter Bailey, June 13, 1913 in Toledo, Ohio – August 13, 1983) was an American radio actor. Starting in 1946, Bailey starred as freelance detective George Valentine in the radio drama Let George Do It. But he is best remembered as the title character in the long-running radio series Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar. The program ran from 1949 until 1962, and featured the exploits of "America's fabulous freelance insurance investigator"; Bailey starred as Johnny from 1955 through 1960 and wrote the script for the December 22, 1957 episode "The Carmen Kringle Matter" using the pen name "Robert Bainter".
Richard Ewing "Dick" Powell (November 14, 1904 – January 2, 1963) was an American singer, actor, film producer, film director and studio head. Though he came to stardom as a musical comedy performer, he showed versatility and successfully transformed into a hardboiled leading man starring in projects of a more dramatic nature. He was the first actor to portray the private detective Philip Marlowe on screen.
