May 11 – Presenting the Transcription Feature: Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar
“Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar” starred Bob Bailey as “the man with the action-packed expense account.” A freelance insurance investigator, Dollar was called in to investigate burglaries and suspicious deaths. If he could recover the item or solve a murder, the insurance company might not have to pay off. In exchange, Dollar got a commission, and, of course, his expenses reimbursed. The show shifted from a weekly half-hour to 15 minutes five days a week. This time host Kevin Lauderdale presents all five episodes of one of Dollar’s most unusual cases.
