Publisher Description

From the golden age of radio comes twelve episodes of this popular and realistic police procedural.

The Lineup was a hard-boiled drama. Like Dragnet, it realistically showed police doing their jobs. The show always began with a police sergeant ordering suspects to stand at attention so that the victim, behind one-way glass, could try to identify the criminal. While the lineup was rarely the key to solving the case, it did give the show a rhythm and also allowed for humor in the interrogation of the suspects by the sergeant.

Bill Johnstone, best known as one of the voices of The Shadow, starred as Lieutenant Ben Guthrie. Wally Maher originally played Sergeant Matt Grebb, until the actor’s death. His character was replaced by Sergeant Pete Carger, played by Jack Moyles. The supporting cast members were a who’s who of Hollywood radio actors, including Howard McNear, William Conrad, Barton Yarborough, Hy Averback, and Herb Butterfield.

The series began as a summer replacement for The FBI in Peace and War in 1950 but soon got its own time slot and would remain on radio until the spring of 1953 before making a successful transition to television.

Twelve episodes included in this collection are “The Grocery Store Matter” (1 Feb 51), “The Silver Swan Case” (22 Feb 51), “The Molly about Seven Case” (27 Feb 51), “The Pointless Pierson Polemic Polarity” (5 Sep 51), “The Senile Slugging Case” (12 Sep 51), “The Fur-Flaunting Floozy” (26 Sep 51), “The Wild, Wild Woman Case” (4 Oct 51), “The Frivolous Forger Fracas” (11 Oct 51), “The Nicely Nixed Nixon Case” (18 Oct 51), “The Pixie-Picker Pickle Case” (8 Nov 51), “Bentley’s Boo-Boo Case” (15 Oct 52), and “Buggered Bunco Boys” (12 Nov 52).

About the Narrators

Bill Johnstone (1908–1996) was a radio and television actor best known for his role as Lamont Cranston in the long-running radio show The Shadow, which he stayed with for five seasons. His distinctive voice was well-suited for characters who were well-off, and this allowed him to portray The Shadow with more authority than had his predecessor, Orson Welles.
