THE CASEBOOK OF GREGORY HOOD

The Casebook of Gregory Hood had it's start as a 1946 summer replacement series for The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes on the Mutual network. The new series is given a plug at the end of the last episode of Sherlock Holmes of the 1945-46 season. Gale Gordon even puts in an appearance on the episode. Gregory Hood, who's business was as an Importer, was also an amateur criminologist who kept a diary of his adventures, hence the title "The Casebook of Gregory Hood". Sherlock Holmes was presumably supposed to be back in the fall which it was, only on another network, ABC. It would return with Tom Conway replacing Basil Rathbone. Instead Mutual continued to air The Casebook of Gregory Hood. The earliest episodes were written by Denis Green and Anthony Boucher, who wrote the Basil Rathbone / Nigel Bruce episodes of The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

The series starred Gale Gordon, who played Mayor LaTrivia and Foggy Williams on Fibber McGee and Molly, Principal Osgood Conklin on Our Miss Brooks, George's boss Rudolph Atterbury on My Favorite Husband. He even portrayed The Whistler on it's premiere broadcast, as well as many, many other radio roles. The series ran on Mutual for one season, 1946-47. It then moved to ABC where it stayed until 1949 or 1950 before going off the air. The last circulating episode so far dates to October 15, 1949. The Petri Wine sponsorship lasted only one season. After that, as far as is known, it was a sustained program on ABC. Gale Gordon would portray Gregory Hood for at least the first ten episodes before Elliott Lewis took over the role. At some point, perhaps at the beginning of the ABC run, George Petrie took over the role. Only 1 known episode so far, survives with him in the role. The broadcast of December 15, 1947. Sadly, only the last half of the episode survives. The last known surviving episode of the series from October 15, 1949 stars Jackson Beck as Gregory Hood. Jackson Beck was on many, many radio series during his career Including Superman, Philo Vance, Inner Sanctum, C.B.S. Radio Mystery Theater.

The role of Gregory's attorney and pal Sanderson Taylor was portrayed by at least 5 different actors during it's time on Mutual. They were Bill Johnstone (of The Shadow fame), Art Gilmore (who generally worked as an announcer for various radio programs including Amos & Andy and Dr. Christian), Carl Harbord, William Bakewell and Howard McNear (Doc on Gusnmoke). Sadly, only 16 1/2 episodes are known to be In circulation.

Posting of The Episodes
I will post one episode each day in MP3 format. I also have 7 FLAC files of the episodes which I will post along with the mp3 files. Some of the MP3 encodes are low (32 kbps). If anyone has fills or upgrades please feel free to post them. The episode titles have been verified by listening to each episode. I like this series. I like the episodes with Gale Gordon the best. Although not many episodes survive I've always wanted to put together an organized set. So, I finally decided to do it while I have the time away from work. I just wanted to share it in case there are others out there like me that like this series. This is another series that hasn't seen much attention over the years. I think a big part of the reason is because the quality in which most of these survive isn't that great. I have some upgrades within this set that I think will make them a little more enjoyable.

Good morning!

Thank you for this Art but this is the same as mine. It usually starts out this way: "Petri Wine brings you....organ music...The Casebook of Gregory Hood!"
The "Petri Wine brings you" part has been clipped.

Here is today's episode. We have both the FLAC and Mp3 Versions:
By the way, the source of the 7 FLAC files I am posting during this run are from cassette tapes. I encoded them myself. When I post FLAC files I generally like to provide what my source is. This way you know what your getting and you at least know they are not MP3 that are converted to FLAC.
