Most of our shows are episodes of popular, well-remembered
old-time radio shows. This one is different - it's the pilot
episode of a show that was not picked up as a regular
It had two names: The announcer calls it The Adventures of Max Chandler, but old-time radio fans call it The Whisper Men.
Karl Swenson starred as Max Chandler, a spy-fighting radio commentator. Karl was best known in radio as Lorenzo Jones in the series of the same name, and in television he played Lars Hanson on Little House on the Prairie. He was also Eddie Haskell's father in Leave It to Beaver.
This episode of The The Whisper Men was broadcast on the Mutual network on October 20, 1945.
