Summary

The Whistler was a radio mystery anthology that debuted on CBS Radio on May 16, 1942. The show was heard only on the West Coast and had Signal Oil as the main sponsor. There were attempts to broadcast the show on the East Coast, one in July to September 1946 and the other in March 1947 to September 1948, with Campbell Soup and Household Finance as the suggested sponsors.
The show centered on a character called The Whistler, the mysterious narrator of various murder stories. The role was given to popular radio announcer Bill Forman, although there were occasions where the other personalities, like Marvin Miller, Bill Johnstone, Gale Gordon, Everett Clarke, and Joseph Kearns, took over.
Despite the show being broadcast on the West Coast only, The Whistler was able to become one of the most popular and longest-running crime mystery dramas. It ended on September 22, 1955.
Enjoy the most complete collection - more than 500 shows. This is volume three of three.

GOOD OLD AMERICAN THRILLERS

These are old USA radio shows. Thrillers that will make your hair stand on end. Each one of the 99 plays are different and very enjoyable.

All you need to do is move forward when the Oil Advert starts! Americans were nuts about advertising Car Oil!!! on their shows.

The sound quality is not too bad for the age of this show, one or two are quite hissy, but generally over all, most are listenable.
42 hours of plays, a great way to spend ones Credits and get a bargain. There are another two of these Radio shows to collect with a total of 500 plays to wile away a lazy hour or two.

A few were hard to hear but still great value

The second volume was better clearer and larger but I still loved this volume. I wish volume one was available.

Poor Quality

What disappointed you about The Whistler - More Than 500 Radio Shows!, Volume 3?

The problem is not with the author or performers. The audio is hissing so badly, you can't hear the story.

What could J. Donald Wilson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Nothing

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
