"Logic Named Joe" first appeared in Astounding Science Fiction in its March 1946 issue under the author's real name, Will F. Jenkins.  Since then it has appeared numerous times under the author's preferred science fiction pseudonym "Murray Leinster," in English, French, Italian, German, Russian, and Croatian.  A cornerstone science fiction story, it predicted the use of linked computers in an era when computing was in its infancy.

The story hit the radio airwaves on the 13th episode of Dimension X on July 1, 1950, and featured the talents of Nelson Julian and Roger De Koven.  Norman Rose was the announcer.  Edward King directed the program from an adaptation by Claris A. Ross.  "A Logic Named Joe was evidently the last program on Dimension X to be broadcast live; episodes following this were prerecorded.
