"Yours Truly Johnny Dollar" was the last dramatic show on the air, closing down the art of dramatic network radio on September 30 1962. He was a freelance insurance investigator. The crime adventure series of nearly 300 episodes was based upon the experiences of his investigations and always began and ended with a statement of costs being posted.
He was “the man with the action-packed expense account”. He was always ready to fly to the far corners of the country for a cut of recovered goods, had an analytical mind, a nose for trouble, and the brawn to take care of himself when the going got dirty and, he always lived to fight again and again.
