Suspense December 16, 1948 - "No Escape"
This is an excellent example of the high quality radio drama that was offered over the twenty year
run of Suspense. This one stars James Cagney as a man who, on the eve of receiving a major safe
driving award, is involved in a serious automobile accident on a lonely canyon road. He makes
some bad decisions from which there is no escape.

starring Wendy Barrie
Calling All Cars July 25, 1934 - "The Execution of John Dillinger"
"Calling All Cars" was a pioneer in the field of police investigation programming. Although its
production techniques were primative when compared to programs that followed later, like "Gang
Busters" and much later, "Dragnet", in its day, it was the class act of crime drama. It dramatized
true stories, and this is one of them; it aired just days after John Dillinger met his end.
