In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Mar 14, 2011

Let George Do It was a one-of-a-kind radio show.  It started as a funny mystery/detective show, and over the years it evolved into a more hard-boiled private eye program.

Bob Bailey, best-known for his later work as Johnny Dollar, starred as George Valentine, a returning World War II veteran.  Valentine had saved up a little money, and he used it to open a business where he would do things other people needed done but didn't want to do themselves. 

The show was quirky and fun to listen to.  George was a happy-go-lucky optimist who seemed to enjoy life, no matter what.

This is the pilot episode, The First Visitor.  It aired on September 20, 1946.
