This series is ready to post. Contributors to organizing it have been yours truly, Geezer, shadowsmom, and the late and greatly missed Dave Siegel. None of us have time to post or host episodes, so if someone can agree to host on their cloud account that would be great. If you want to host but don't have a cloud account, we've been having great luck with sync and pcloud throughout OTRdom. It would also be great if someone could do various newspaper and other research.

If you're not familiar with this series that was an early showcase for Jack Webb, it is strongly recommended you download Stewart Wright's log that is packed with fascinating show background and dispels many myths and offers a well-researched log that corrects many errors. We followed that log in the organization of the set.

It's a nice set and includes episodes after Webb left the series. And... of course some really crisp writing by E. Jack Neuman.

Two steadfast Cobaltians have stepped forward to help out. We could use a series researcher (or two or three or more!) for news clippings, photos, and other background.

Thanks, greybelt. I have a little bit of research on this series I can share as we go, although not a lot.

That's super! I'll organize various files and perhaps the series can begin posting sometime next week!

Thanks, kdmarket.

I have a couple of clippings I can share to start out the series.

The first episode of Jeff Regan from July 10, 1948 is not available, but I have one clipping for the premiere, which erroneously identified the series as "Joe Canto, Private Eye." The title of the episode, though, is correct:

Long Beach Press Telegram, July 10, 1948 (p. 14)
Jeff Regan Long-b10

See Stewart Wright's log for more about the incorrect series title:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Here is a clipping for "The Prodigal Daughter" episode, although the title is not identified in the clipping:

Long Beach Press Telegram, July 17, 1948 (p. 14)
Jeff Regan Long-b11

Finally, if you're a Johnny Dollar fan, you might notice that the plot of "The Prodigal Daughter" is familiar. The same story was adapted for the 5-part Johnny Dollar story "The Pearling Matter" from 1956.

See Stewart Wright's article "A Whimsical Look at the Many Aliases of Jeff Regan" for more about reused stories from Jeff Regan:

This episode has the only appearance by the Joe Canto character.

Canto, a fellow International Detective Bureau operative,
was  played by Barton Yarborough.

I found a brief newspaper clipping for The Lonesome Lady episode:

Long Beach Press Telegram, July 24, 1948 (p. 10)
Jeff Regan Long-b12

According to Stewart Wright's article "A Whimsical Look at the Many Aliases of Jeff Regan," this episode was also adapted twice for Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar:
02/06/1953 "The Chicago Fraud Matter"
12/12-16/1955 "The Lansing Fraud Matter"

Again, you can find his full article here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

For particulars on the reuse of SEVERAL Jeff Regan scripts,
see the Stewart Wright article

An article regarding several of the myths and misconceptions about the Jeff Regan series,
DEBUNKING THE MYTHS ABOUT JEFF REGAN, INVESTIGATOR:
An Exercise in Old-Time Radio Research

can be found at:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


October, 2013 Update
The following update to the availability of the September 03, 1950 broadcast of
Jeff Regan, Investigator appeared in the
October, 2013 issue of Radio Recall

". . . Stewart Wright tells us that In his June, 2013
article on Jeff Regan he said that the last episode of
the series, "The British Are Coming" is not known
to be in circulation.

That statement is no longer true.

Stewart has learned that OTR collector and
dealer Jerry Haendiges has located an audio copy
of the episode. Information on the disk label
verifies that it aired on CBS on September 3,
1950. The show is available for purchase on
Jerry's website
