Unfortunately this qualifies as an upgrade because it is "less bad" than the one it replaced.

This is a question I posed to completedayman who helped post the Whistler on Cobalt in 2011 with me. We are both stumped. Can you help??

The Radio Spirits download site recently posted "Lady and the Sea," but it differs from what we had.
Copies of both versions are at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

These are the two programs:

  • Whistler 1948-07-28 320 Lady from the Sea (OPEN and now for the radio program).mp3 (THIS IS THE ONE WE HAD)
  • Whistler 1948-07-28 320 Lady from the Sea (OPEN and now stay tuned).mp3 (THIS IS THE NEW ONE)

One has this opening that is used from episode 317 on 48-06-23 to episode 328 on 48-09-22
Announcer. “And now for the radio program that has rated tops in popularity for a longer period of time than any other west coast program. The mystery program that is unique among all mystery programs, because you know who’s guilty. You see his every move, you know his complete plan, even his innermost thoughts. Yet the final curtain always brings a startling surprise, in the Signal Oil program. The Whistler.”
The other has this opening used from at least episode 369 on 49-06-26 to at least episode 406 on 50-03-12
Announcer. “And now, stay tuned for the program that is rated tops in popularity for a longer period of time than any other west coast program in radio history. The Signal Oil program – the Whistler.”

The other has this opening from at least episode 407 on 50-03-19 to at least episode 522 of 52-06-08.
Announcer. “And now, stay tuned for the mystery program that is unique among all mystery programs, because even when you know who’s guilty, you always receive a startling surprise at the final curtain, in the Signal Oil program The Whistler.”
This opening places the new program in 1950 and beyond, but I cannot find any openings in the schedules where it would fit.

One of the problems for the new recording is that the 1970s syndicated versions all use the "and now stay tuned" opening, with no mention of Signal Oil. But this recording seems to have all of the Signal Oil ads intact in the balance of the program and they do not seem patched in. The show credits match in both. RadioGoldindex does not list a Signal version of this episode, just a syndicated one. We know the one we had was a network version.

The only newspaper listings I can find are for the Household Finance run for this script performed on April 21, 1948. This is definitely not that.

The Whistler has thrown curves at us before, for sure!

Cobaltia's fresh eyes and ears will help!

greybelt, the second version, Whistler 1948-07-28 320 Lady from the Sea (OPEN and now stay tuned).mp3 (THIS IS THE NEW ONE )

does not have this opening.

It says.. and now stay tuned for the mystery program that is unique among all mystery programs because even when you know who's guilty, you always receive a startling surprise at the final curtain in The Whistler

Is this the version you meant to post?

Best regards

Thank you artatoldotr -- I have corrected the post.

My first inclination is to say that it's a rebroadcast, but the Signal Oil ads seem intact and match the other recording as best I can tell

I have realized that my copy of
Whistler 1943-05-29 54 Final Decree
is incorrect -- it's a mislabeled copy of the 1949-06-26 performance.

Now I'm wondering if the 1943 version exists at all. Can you check your collections and see if you have the correct one?
If it's 1943 it will begin with "Have you heard the strange (or weird) tales of The Whistler?".
If it's 1949 it will start with Marvin Miller "And now stay tuned for..."

Greybelt, I have the same episodes in my collection as you do.
They are both 1949 versions.

Sorry.

I'm convinced now that this was my error in my master collection and the 1943 episode is still a missing episode
