This time I look at a little known and rare radio program from 1942-1944 which focused on the newspaper reporter as detective. In this case, a female detective, Anne Rogers, who writes a column for a reputable newspaper. Anne finds herself involved in crime solving with the help of her foil Sgt. Flannigan. Scriptwriter was the noted Science Fiction writer, Nelson Bond. This episode of Hot Copy is called “Death Studies in Angles” from February 27th, 1944. Though there were 3 actresses who played Anne Rogers, this episode features Betty Lou Gerson (right) in the role.
Music under is Andre Previn Trio: the tune is “One For Bunz.”
