SCRIPTS FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF CHICAGO RADIO
The Crime Files of Flamond was produced for Brach's candies from 1946-1948, and Mike Wallace (then billed as Myron Wallace) played the title role during the program's syndicated run. Wallace's career in journalism spanned seven decades, and he was one of the first correspondents on 60 Minutes. Cavalcade of America, sponsored by DuPont (whose motto, "Maker of better things for better living through chemistry," was read at the beginning of each broadcast) documented historical events emphasizing humanitarian progress.
