This Month’s Featured Production...
"The Thin Man" was a popular radio series that aired in the 1940s. Based on a novel by Dashiell Hammett, the show starred William Powell and Myrna Loy as husband and wife team Nick and Nora Charles.

Nick is a former private detective who married wealthy socialite Nora and retired from the detective business to enjoy the high life. However, the couple is frequently drawn into murder mysteries, often involving their own friends and acquaintances. Nick's sharp wit, charm, and detective skills, combined with Nora's social connections and quick thinking, help them solve the cases.

The series was known for its clever dialogue, witty banter between Nick and Nora, and the couple's love of cocktails. The show was also famous for its recurring characters, including Nick's police lieutenant friend John Guild and their terrier dog Asta, who often assists Nick in his investigations.

Overall, "The Thin Man" was a popular and influential radio series that set the standard for future detective shows and helped establish the "whodunit" as a popular genre in both radio and film.
