In an earlier post, I noted that Geezer mentioned that today's recording is often circulated as Backstage Murder with an earlier date. I couldn't verify the date, so settled on this one. But what is the true title? Murdered Comedian? Comical Corpse? We won't know unless we get the actual script.

Keep in mind that Mr. DA was often reusing scripts but changing their names. A 1943 use of this script was very possible; it just could not be confirmed with the research materials we have at this moment for a date. The fact that this is an AFRS recording means that many of the clues we would have in the program's advertising and other announcements have been removed. The other aspect of the 1944 date is that it was used in AFRS Mystery Playhouse, and it seemed when I was working on the date a couple of years ago that the 1944 version was the more likely one they would take since it was closer to their production date. It's educated speculation, at best.

There were no newspaper items related to today's episode. The title or script may not have been settled in time for the public relations staff to get it out to the press. Here are two background items about the series stars.

Today's episode is "Murder in Rhythm and Rhyme" of March 17, 1948
kdmarket: please post the link to the full version as well
For some reason that is unknown at this time, there is a full broadcast version in circulation and a short 20-minute version. The origin and reason for the abridged version has never been determined.

Based on the news clippings, it appears that the title was changed just before broadcast time.
