Why, Greybelt, you cagey old devil. Don't tell us you found the missing episode of "Johnny Dollar"--"The Missing Crown Matter"?

According to an entry in the Yazoo City Land Fraud Picayune:

In tonight's [September 31, 1959] episode of a very special Yours Truly Johnny Dollar, a minor who's a miner, Hatfield Schucteluzengaard, mistakenly believes he's excavated the ancient and long-lost Crown of Hector, Crown Prince of Denmark following Hamlet's death, in a landfill. Spoiler: Of course Johnny discovers it's actually just a filling belonging to Joe Louis, knocked out of a molar during a routine sparring match during training. Still, it's estimated at $42.00 since it came from the great fighter.

Now I can't wait for tomorrow. What a find! Thanks for the hard investigative work, buddy.

You're correct!
Jack Johnstone adapted a old E Jack Neuman script from the Jeff Regan series "The Lady and the Rich Amalgam" that had the subtitle "Be True to Your Teeth and they Won't Be False to You." Johnstone realized too late that the script was awful, and before just before production he changed the attribution from Neuman's usual "John Dawson" to "Chris P. Bacon" The script is available in the Poorman-McCracken Collection at Jonathan Bundy University in Nefarious Springs, Texas.

Can't put anything past you, Ghemrats! You're way too smart!

YTJD expert John Abbott will be interviewed this Sunday evening (Nov. 4) on The Big Broadcast, 4 hours of Old Time Radio broadcast by WAMU in Washington, DC. The interview should air after they play The Big Scoop Matter. John's segment will be about 7:30pm Eastern US time.

In the DC Metro area, WAMU is at 88.5 on the FM dial. Outside the DC area, the program can be streamed live at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

YTJD 1962-02-04 775 The Nugget of Truth Matter UPGRADE-3.mp3
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And now the final episode of YTJD broadcast on the date known as "the day the golden age of radio died." We can all speculate if that was the real date or not, or if the golden age ended earlier, and YTJD was part of a silver age. But this was it, and it happened with virtually no fanfare. This is not much of an upgrade but it is a little better, but its opening is incomplete. Some collectors will pick the sound, others will ignore it for its flaw, I'm a completist so I keep everything. Smile
YTJD 1962-09-30 809 The Tip-Off Matter LESS HUM&HISS CLIPPED OPEN.mp3
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

John Abbott's book lists and summarizes two scripts identified by researcher Stewart Wright at the Thousand Oaks Library, "The Key to Crime Matter" that have some similarities but were never produced. They were intended for the week following Tip-Off. CBS did continue to feed re-runs to its stations, but that soon ended.

Listen to the John Abbott interview this weekend or by podcast. We'll start Suspense upgrades tomorrow. If you have not been watching the Suspense thread, there are two recent posts about a script coming up for auction that spurred some more research into what was going on in the brief period of the 60-minute format. There's another on The Man Who Threw Acid and its relationship to the attack on labor reporter Victor Riesel in April 1956.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The marvelous research by John Abbott and the support of others led to the publication of the second edition of The "Who Is Johnny Dollar?" Matter by BearManor and available from there and amazon.

John and I have corresponded a lot since the publication of the first edition and met many times. In this new edition, there has been a massive change to the Bob Readick sequence and some minor changes to others. I am not a fan of episode numbering, but I have totally renumbered my set to correspond with John's research. That took a few hours yesterday. I also added page numbers from his book to the file names of the OTRR placeholder files that hold spots for missing episodes.

The Bailey half hour run now starts with number 509.

These are the names of the new placeholder files starting from that point. There are also a couple of information files that correct some errors (most errors were innocent, the best information that was had at the time). John was not able to get information about every missing episode, so those do not appear in his synopsis section, but do appear in his episode lists. This is why some of the placeholder file names do not have page notations from his book. The page numbers correspond to the hard copy version.

YTJD 1961-06-18 740 NOT AVAIL The Million Dollar Matter (inferred title, notes).pdf

The last item is the toughest research challenge. It places the Kramer replacement one week later than usually identified. It adds an episode based on the tease at the end of The Stock in Trade Matter. This is what John's research indicates now, and it makes the rest of the program log items fit once the 'bogus' episode from early in the Kramer run is removed. That bogus episode is the second bolded item in the list of placeholder files.

One aspect of the Readick run that is quite interesting is that the early scripts clearly indicate they were written for Hollywood productions featuring Bob Bailey. This implies that the exact date of the switch to New York was not known, even though they all knew that something was eventually going to happen at some time in the future.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

What would be helpful in all of this would be newspaper reports of the casting change from Readick to Kramer, but there are none. Perhaps some of it had to do with CBS' growing apathy toward radio drama, believing that cast changes were not all that important to announce. Another aspect that I believe is more likely is that Readick's sudden medical event, psychological in nature, was kept private out of respect to him and his family. Readick did continue to act, and write, appearing on Suspense after the YTJD cast change. He was even in some early CBSRMT in the 1970s, but he was not able to maintain steady acting assignments. He died, tragically, trying to cross an active New Jersey highway in 1985, having been out of regular touch with his family and friends for years. There were no news reports of the event or his passing. Today his challenges would have been handled much differently as great strides have been made in diagnosis and treatment for his sufferings.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The starting episode numbers for the various actors are now
1 Charles Russell
34 Edmond O'Brien
136 John Lund
229 Bob Bailey 5-part
509 Bob Bailey half hour
712 Bob Readick
741 Mandel Kramer
The final episode is 806.

The numbering does not include the various audition recordings.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Eventually all these changes will go through the OTRR process where that set will be updated.

John's research and devotion to this series is a treasure and a delight, aside from being a great achievement for our hobby. Thank him for his work by getting his book! It's available in hard copy and also on amazon in Kindle format.

John Abbott’s two volume set, The "Who Is Johnny Dollar?" Matter, is an incredible work of First-Rate research and writing!  There only a handful of episodes for which no scripts and no broadcasts exist. John has included detailed plot synopses for nearly 800 episodes.  

The 2nd edition features much updated material on the series.

John continues to uncover new YTJD information including more information on Charles Russell and additional examples of scripts from other series that were reused on YTJD.
He makes this information available through his Second Edition Errata Page
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The set is available in hard cover and soft cover formats from the publisher,  Bearmanor Media
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
and
is available in hard cover, soft cover, and Kindle formats from amazon.com
(the Kindle format can be read on a computer using free amazon Kindle software and has the added feature that allows it to “read” the book to you.)

Last year, I purchased 4 sets of the hard cover 2nd edition of The "Who Is Johnny Dollar?" Matter; three as presents for friends and one for myself. This year a couple of people on my Christmas list will be receiving hard cover sets.

The "Who Is Johnny Dollar?" Matter in its various formats are fairly-priced.  

So for as little as approximately $20.00 (Kindle version), you can own the DEFINITIVE source of information for Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar. These books  will give you many, many hours of enjoyable and informative reading.


Signing off for now,

When I started collecting back when the dinosaurs were making their last stand, I said "a serial? for a detective program? that's not worth listening to!"

Boy was I wrong.

Even though the YTJD5s were done at time of canned music and many canned sound effects, the writing, direction, and acting rose above all that cost-cutting and various bureaucratic disrespect.  These are very very special. When I had a chance to talk to Greg Bell, host of the RadioClassics SiriusXM channel, he said that the YTJD5s are the most requested and most listened to programs they run. They are so very good. (Except maybe for Laird Douglas Douglas!).

Today's upgrade is still LQ, but an improvement...

when you already gave us this

which sounds better and is 5 minutes longer?

It's Greybelt the completist MESSING UP!!
For some reason I did not get that merged into my own master set!

Sorry for the confusion.
I should get all of this cleaned up today and make a valid post tomorrow.

Picking ourselves up and dusting ourselves off from yesterday's mistake, here are two recordings...

This one is just less bad.
YTJD 1957-04-14 528 The Ming Toy Murphy Matter UPGRADE PROCESSED LQ.mp3

YTJD 1957-06-09 536 The Mason-Dixon Mismatch Matter [AFRTS] UPGRADE-2.mp3

Some of these and upcoming files had their beginnings in the generosity of Toebig, with a little bit of desktop audio processing technology thrown in for good measure. Many of his files are from early in the hobby, and have not been scarred by the attempts to improve them by eliminating flaws or enhancing them through equalization equipment of those early times. Because YTJD in the Bailey half-hour era and beyond relies so much on home recordings, many by service personnel who loved the series when broadcast by AFRTS, there are flaws that became part of the programs because they used consumer recording equipment. It was just the nature of the technology at the time to have hiss and hum and other characteristics. Early collectors "fixed" these when listening and trading programs. Because many of Toebig's files seem to be early in the collecting process, before generations of copies of copies compounded well-intentioned fixes into distortions, the flaws in his files are cleaner and more precisely addressed by sound processing software. I've run into a lot of files recently that initially sound like they can be improved but they've been so "fixed" so often that nothing helpful can be done with them. Lately I've been quite pleased using Magix Audio Cleaning Lab (now sold as Sound Forge Audio Cleaning Lab) and the open source Audacity program, the combination of which worked well on many of the upcoming file postings. Our best hope is still to find AFRTS discs of this part of the YTJD run. In the meantime if we keep going back to older collections assembled before the mid-1980s, we can find recordings closer to the original source that can be processed with good results.
