Creighton Gideon is out of jail and slugs Malloy. The beautiful reporter says, "Love me, please Mike." The programs apparently began with a promotional announcement (not recorded) and ended with another (or public service announcement) that was also not recorded on these transcriptions. The programs that are timed at less than 29:30 are listed as "complete" as the announcements had nothing to do with the program.

Miller (supervisor), Al Ganoway (director), Sid Goodwin (supervisor for ABC), Gaylord Carter (organist), Len Beardsley (announcer). 27:54. Audio condition: Excellent. Complete.

Malloy muses, "The people I meet should send their souls out to be cleaned." An insurance company is being plagued by a rash of accidental deaths. Mike investigates, "for the usual fee." It sounds like a cross between "Dragnet" and "Johnny Dollar."

Miller (producer), Gaylord Carter (organist), Jack Wurmser (ABC supervisor), Len Beardsley (announcer). 27:37. Audio condition: Excellent. Complete.
