Sherlock Holmes (radio 1947-1948)

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

Sherlock Holmes is an American radio show broadcasted between 28 september 1947 and 20 june 1948 on Mutual and ABC, starring John Stanley as Sherlock Holmes and Alfred Shirley as John Watson. Produced by Basil Loughrane, written by Edith Meiser, introduced by Cy Harrice and sponsored by Trimount Clothing Co. (Clipper Craft Clothes).

When Basil Rathbone left the long 1939-1946 radio series, Nigel Bruce remained as Watson but with Tom Conway as Sherlock Holmes between 1946-1947. However, the audience didn't like it very much (it lasts after 38 episodes). So a new actor was chosen to replace Sherlock Holmes. John Stanley was found and Alfred Shirley was chosen as a new Watson.

The shows were broadcasted on sundays, 19h-19h30.
