In the Corner with Dan Hughes


May 21, 2012

I still marvel at how little is known or remembered about old-time radio.  We know more about the history of ancient Rome than we do about radio shows of the 1940s. 

And here's another example - a program that is nearly forgotten, though it ran for over a year on the Mutual network during World War II.

The show is Murder Clinic, and it adapted murder mystery short stories into half-hour radio shows. 

This episode, Murder at Marsden Manor, featured Agatha Christie's detective Hercule Poirot.  It was first broadcast on October 6, 1942.
