Listen to the last episode:

John Michael Hayes was a two-time Academy Award-nominated screenwriter who wrote four films for Alfred Hitchcock. But before that, he was a busy radio writer penning adventures for Johnny Dollar and comedies for Lucille Ball. We'll hear three of Hayes' old time radio scripts: "The Seeing Eye" from The Whistler (originally aired on CBS on November 12, 1945); "Lady in Distress" from Richard Diamond, Private Detective (originally aired on ABC on February 23, 1951); and "The Vendetta Caper" from The Adventures of Sam Spade (originally aired on NBC on March 30, 1951).
