Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar: Introduction

Johnny Dollar was "the man with the action-packed expense account, America's fabulous freelance insurance investigator... Johnny Dollar". "Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar" ran from 1949 through 1962 on CBS. The episodes were framed in the manner of an expense account, with Johnny periodically stating an expense and its value, in between all the action. Most of the 800+ episodes opened with a ringing telephone and Johnny answering the phone stating his name. Usually, the title of each episode was embedded at the beginning of Johnny's expense account, and except for the first few dozen episodes, all the titles of the episodes were along the lines of "The <Something> Matter".

The demise of "Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar" is marked by many as the official end of Old Time Radio.
