Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar is a radio drama of "America's fabulous freelance insurance investigator." The show was broadcast on CBS Radio from 1949 to 1962.
Each story generally started with a phone call from an insurance executive, calling on Johnny to investigate an unusual claim. Each story required Johnny to travel to some distant locale, usually within the United States but sometimes abroad, where he was almost always threatened with personal danger in the course of his investigations. Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar has the distinction of being the last dramatic radio series from the golden age of radio. Click here for a list of episodes on this old time radio CD Set.
