Chandu The Magician:

Chandu the Magician was an American radio drama that was heard on several different networks and aired in two distinctly different series, one in the 1930s and a revival 12 years later in the 1940s and 1950s. One of the longest running radio adventure serials, the series was created by Harry A. Earnshaw (1878–1953) and Raymond R. Morgan.

Both incarnations of the series featured the adventures of the character Frank Chandler, also known as Chandu, an American who learned mystical arts such as astral projection which he used to fight criminals and other villains.

Launched in 1931 on KHJ in Los Angeles, the series was soon heard through the West Coast when broadcast on the Don Lee Network. It was then heard, starting in February 1932, over WOR in the East. Nationally, it aired over Mutual starting October 8, 1932. The series was sponsored by White King Soap in the West and by Beech Nut Gum in the East.

Gayne Whitman played the lead role of American-born Frank Chandler, who had learned occult secrets from a yogi in India. Known as Chandu, he possessed several supernatural skills, including astral projection, teleportation and the ability to create illusions.  Chandu's goal was to "go forth with his youth and strength to conquer the evil that threatens mankind".  His sister, Dorothy Regent, was portrayed by Margaret MacDonald.

Cyril Armbrister directed the scripts by Vera Oldham which took Chandu to far-flung locales, both real and mythical. Romantic interludes for Chandu were introduced with Egyptian Princess Nadji (Veola Vonn). Music was first furnished by Felix Mills and then Raymond Paige.  According to Veola Vonn, the program was broadcast from the KHJ building on Melrose Avenue; the KHJ building is still standing, although the KHJ studios are no longer in use.

In 1932, Walter Winchell noted, "One of the smaller radio chains has a feature called Chandu, which is Hindu-Chinese for an opium preparation. In fewer words—Dope".

In 1935, the production moved to WGN Chicago with a new cast, including Howard Hoffman in the title role and Cornelia Osgood as Dorothy. Her children, Bob and Betty, were played by Olan Soule and Audrey McGrath. When this series came to an end in 1936, WGN's productions of Chandu were transcribed in the Chicago facilities of the World Broadcasting System for use on other stations. In April 1935, they were being broadcast on one other station, WJR in Detroit, Mich.

Dr. Kildaire:

Doctor Kildare radio show was one of the more popular medical drama serializations on old time radio. The story revolved around the life of James Kildare, from his struggles as an intern until he became a full-fledged doctor as well as the many intrigues and politics in the medical field. In 1949, MGM recruited Lew Ayres (Dr. Kildare) and Lionel Barrymore (Dr. Gillespie) to record the series. It was first aired on WMGM New York station from February 1, 1950 until August 3, 1951. Over the run of the series, several radio veterans starred in this old radio show. One of which was renowned actor Ted Osborne (Dr. Carough), who portrayed the hospital’s chief administrator and a constant thorn in Dr. Kildare’s side. A strong supporting cast composed of Jane Webb (Nurse Mary Lamont) and Virginia Gregg (“Nosy Parker”) to name a few helped add a sense of reality and solidness to the powerhouse program.
