Over 1200 Pages of Johnny Dollar!

From 1949 until the end of Radio drama in 1962, Yours Truly Johnny Dollar was a stalwart of radio drama. This book, The "Who is Johnny Dollar?" Matter provides a different look at Johnny Dollar - as if he were a real investigator. The "Who is Johnny Dollar?" Matter starts with a mini-biography and then provides a detailed recap of each YTJD program.The detailed case analyses catalogs the details of each story, including cast, expenses, writers and directors, and cross-references to programs that used the same script with a different name and cast. The detailed index catalogs each story, case location and the cast of each program. The books also contain a detailed listing of cases by insurance company and the expenses for each of the 6 Johnny Dollars updated to 21st century dollars. Also included are recaps of programs which only exist in the KNX collection of the Thousand Oaks, California library. The "Who is Johnny Dollar?" Matter is the definitive reference work for the cases handled by Johnny Dollar, both those currently available electronically, but also those available only in the KNX collection of the Thousand Oaks, California library. This book is so large, we have to cut into three volumes.
