Listen to Mike Shayne on radiothen.network

Michael "Mike" Shayne is a fictional private detective character created during the late 1930s by writer Brett Halliday, a pseudonym of Davis Dresser. The character appeared in a series of seven films starring Lloyd Nolan for Twentieth Century Fox, five films from the low-budget Producers Releasing Corporation with Hugh Beaumont, a radio series under a variety of titles between 1944 and 1953, and later in 1960–1961 in a 32-episode NBC television series starring Richard Denning in the title role. Actor Jeff Chandler played Shayne in the radio series. Jeff Chandler and Wally Maher were among the actors who starred as Shayne in a weekly radio series....The best that can be said of the Hugh Beaumont renditions of Michael Shayne is that they gave Wally Maher a huge boost with his Michael Shayne character over Radio. Indeed, Davis Dresser himself, is reported to have enjoyed Wally Maher's portrayal of his two-fisted Irishman in favor of all other portrayals he'd seen and heard over Radio and Film. Mind you, that group eventually included Lloyd Nolan, Hugh Beaumont, Jeff Chandler, Donald Curtis, Robert Sterling, Vinton Hayworth and Richard Denning.
