Episodes of the old-time radio detective series "A Man Named Jordan" and "Rocky Jordan"

Rocky Jordan was a radio series  ( Crime Stoppers, Thursdays on RADIOthen.network ) about an American restaurateur in Cairo who each week became involved in some kind of mystery or adventure. The show was broadcast on CBS from October 31, 1948 to September 10, 1950, and then again from June 27, 1951 to August 22, 1951. The character of Rocky Jordan had been introduced to listeners in a similar show called A Man Named Jordan that was broadcast in 1945 but set in Istanbul, rather than Cairo. The two lead roles were those of Rocky Jordan and Captain Sam Sabaaya of the Cairo Police. For most of the show's history Jordan was played by veteran radio actor Jack Moyles (Photo: right), but he was later replaced by a movie star, George Raft, for the brief 1951 run.Jay Novello played Sabaaya (Photo: left) throughout the entire series. Other roles were played by members of Hollywood's Radio Row, and the announcer was Larry Thor. In February 1951, it was announced CBS was in discussions to make a TV series based on the show starring Raft made by Raft's company. However this never happened. WIKIPEDIA
