Casey Crime Photographer

A mystery, a crime and a newspaper photographer on the prowl is an unbeatable combination for an entertaining radio show. Meet Casey, Crime Photographer, who wasn’t a detective but always wound up solving a case. As with many crime shows, the star character (aka Casey) sometimes directed police investigators and always wedged himself into places he shouldn’t be. The program is a great example of how classic radio scripts could tiptoe around reality and turn into shows that are just plain fun to listen to.

Casey, Crime Photographer had a litany of different titles during its run, from 1943 to 1955, but the name Casey was always in there. Every show opened with Casey and Ann, his newspaper-reporter girlfriend, in a brief, humorous exchange with Ethelbert, the bartender at the Blue Note Café. Jazz lovers may recognize the flawless music in the background. Several musicians created the music magic during the life of the show, among them pianist Teddy Wilson, one of the Benny Goodman trio that formed in the mid-1930s and included master drummer, Gene Krupa.
