Jeff Regan: The Frank Graham Episodes
Jack Webb left Jeff Regan after the last episode in 1948. In September, 1949, CBS relaunched the show with a new cast, featuring "the man of a thousand voices" Jeff Regan. The show continued until August, 1950.

More of a Great Show
The third episode, listed as "The Man In Black," is the raw recording of the show, without sound effects, music, intro- or -outro. Before I realized this, I was quite surprised at what I heard. At one point, Graham repeats himself and the guy at the coffee shop says, "you just said that." About five minutes later, the same voice says, "Crosby did it. I don't know why I couldn't." At around 25:00, the recording engineer is heard, and Graham says, "C'mon, let's go. bottom of 27." The whole things a neat behind-the-scenes listen!
