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.
