Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar - Airs July 29th

The Deadly Debt Matter from Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar 
This week we bring you a classic radio drama from "the man with the action-packed expense account, America’s fabulous freelance insurance investigator, Johnny Dollar!" 
Johnny was a smart enough insurance investigator but, at making out his expense account, he was a genius. A fella who could pad said expense account with the very best of them. It is hard to believe this premise made for great radio - but apparently it did. Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar had a stunning stretch; airing for over 12 years on the CBS Radio network. There were 811 episodes created, of which a remarkable 720 still exist. In our program, Johnny Dollar is played by Bob Bailey and co-stars Sam Edwards and Virginia Gregg. It was written, directed, and produced by Jack Johnstone of Buck Rogers and The Adventures of Superman fame. The Deadly Debt Matter was originally broadcast on August 28th, 1960.
