GANG BUSTERS
When Phillips H. Lord created his long running Gang Busters radio series in January of 1936, crime was rampant and criminals (both actual and fictional) were being glamorized in movies and newspapers. In response, Lord brought the public this police procedural series, dramatizing stories of real cops who kept real counterfeiters, safe crackers, and killers off the streets - and even broadcasting alerts for criminals known to be at large. It was billed as "the only national program that brings you authentic police case histories." J. Edgar Hoover, head of all G-men, allowed Lord to dramatize closed cases from the FBI's files. This landmark series is arguably responsible for the entire idea of reality based police dramas, featuring true stories that played like fiction. A novel idea for the time, and one that is still powerful today.
