G. K. Chesterton's famous detective hit the radio airwave briefly, from June 10-July 29, 1945, on the Mutual Broadcasting System. Stage, radio, film, and television actor Karl Swenson played the title role. (Swenson may be best remembered as the voice of Merlin in Disney's The Sword in the Stone, or as lumber mill owner Lars Hanson on Little House on the Prairie; shortly after the episode in which his character died, Hansen himself died of a heart attack -- that episode aired eight days after the actor's death.) William Sweets directed and John Stanley announced the half-hour mystery program.
