The Adventures of Ellery Queen was a fun detective radio show,
because the audience was given a chance to solve the crime before
Ellery fingered the culprit.
Near the end of each episode, Ellery would stop the show to announce that he had the necessary clues to solve the mystery, and he then invited the listening audience to name the villain.
He often had famous guests in the studio who were challenged to figure out the clues. After guesses were made, the program began again and revealed the criminal.
This episode, The Adventure of the World Series Crime, originally aired on September 30, 1943.
