Before he starred on screen in The Hitch-Hiker and In a Lonely Place, Frank Lovejoy was a busy radio actor. He played the Blue Beetle, menaced the Shadow, and narrated adventures of the FBI. Lovejoy could also be heard in supporting roles on Suspense, but he moved into the starring role in 1951. We'll hear him in a pair of radio thrillers: first, a ballad brought to radio life in "The Wreck of the Old 97" (originally aired on CBS on March 17, 1952). Then, he plays a man searching for his brother-in-law's murderer in "The Frightened City" (originally aired on CBS on November 10, 1952).
