BOSTON BLACKIE
Boston Blackie came to radio on June 23, 1944 as a summer replacement for Amos 'n' Andy and featured Chester Morris and announcer Harlow Wilcox. Richard Kollmar took over as Blackie in a syndicated series that ran from April 11, 1945 through October 25, 1950. Boston Blackie was created by Jack Boyle, a hard-drinking opium addict who served three prison terms. While in prison, Boyle began writing true-crime confession stories that were published in The American Magazine under the byline 6006, his convict number. Upon his release from prison, Boyle began writing crime fiction for Ray Long, editor of Redbook. Boyle's stories were collected in his 1919 book, Boston Blackie, and inspired a popular series of B-films, the radio series and a 1951 video version.
